The new Bond theme, Writing’s on the Wall has been dropped, courtesy of Sam Smith.
Smith worked on the track with producers Disclosure and songwriter Jimmy Napes, and revealed the song earlier today (September 25). The British singer tweeted, “I have been dreaming of this moment for a long long time.”
Mixed reviews are in with some listeners citing it as, “boring with no catchy hook”. It does follow past Bond themes in terms of strings, orchestra, a big voice, and drama.
Spectre is released in Ireland on Monday, October 26. It will then open in cinemas internationally at later dates, with its US release set for November 6.
Daniel Craig (007) will be joined by Oscar winner Christoph Waltz, former Sherlock actor Andrew Scott, Dave Bautista and Lea Seydoux as Bond girl Madeleine Swann.
