LONDON--Adele has confirmed she has co-written and performed the theme to the upcoming James Bond movie “Skyfall.”
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.
