Adele – Skyfall

Adele‘s theme for the new James Bond movie “Skyfall” debuted Thursday evening and has all the lavish trimmings and trappings one would expect. Recorded at the legendary Abbey Road Studio and backed by a 77-piece orchestra, Adele’s lush vocals are able to hold their own against the deep arrangement. Her style fits flawlessly with the timelessness of 007, and her sultry theme brings an air of nostalgia to a series of films that have done a great job revamping the historic franchise. While the melody and overall catchiness of the song itself may take a backseat to its grandiosity, it still has me incredibly excited for the next chapter in the blond Bond’s story.
