The singer was not initially sold on the idea. "I was a little hesitant at first to be involved with the theme song for Skyfall," she said. "There's a lot of instant spotlight and pressure when it comes to a Bond song." But after enlisting the help of "Rolling in the Deep" co-writer/producer, Paul Epworth, the multi-platinum selling singer agreed to participate.
"Skyfall" marks the first new song Adele has recorded since "21" became an international phenomena.
Adele's "Skyfall" was recorded at the famed Abbey Road Studios in London and features a 77-piece orchestra. "When we recorded the strings, it was one of the proudest moments of my life," Adele said in the statement. I’ll be back combing my hair when I'm 60 telling people I was a Bond girl back in the day."
Adele follows icons like Paul McCartney, Nancy Sinatra and Madonna, all of whom have contributed to the James Bond series over the years.
