Sam Smith is an international pop stars, so, naturally, I have absolutely zero context about his music or anything else concerning him. What I do know is that he’ll be providing the theme song for Spectre, the upcoming entry in the ever-lasting James Bond series, entitled “Writing’s On the Wall.” Of course, no matter how bad the song might be — and I’m not saying it will be, I honestly have no clue — it’ll never rank near the nadir of Bond theme songs, which include Madonna‘s “Die Another Day” and A-Ha‘s “The Living Daylights.” “Writing’s On the Wall” will be available for streaming and purchase on September 25th, ahead of Spectre‘s November 6th release date.
From the press release:
Multi-platinum selling artist Sam Smith has co-written the title song, “Writing’s On The Wall,” with fellow GRAMMY® Award winner Jimmy Napes. It is the first James Bond theme song recorded by a British male solo artist since 1965. Smith’s debut album In The Lonely Hourlaunched at No. 1 in the UK and bowed in at No. 2 in the US, and has since earned five No.1 UK singles, four GRAMMY® Awards, three Brit Awards, six MOBO Awards, Q and AMA Awards.
