The singer was initially unsure whether she wanted to take the project, according to news posted to the official James Bond website Monday.
“There's a lot of instant spotlight and pressure when it comes to a Bond song,” she was quoted as saying. “But I fell in love with the script ... It was also a lot of fun writing to a brief, something I've never done which made it exciting.”
The song was written by Adele and Paul Hepworth, who co-wrote her hit “Rolling in the Deep.” It was recorded at London's famed Abbey Road Studios.
