Adele Tweets Confirmation She’s Singing ‘Skyfall’ Theme

There’s been a deluge of Bond bits and bonds this morning (October 1), but here’s something quite nice for music fans: the very preggers Adele has tweeted a picture providing confirmation that she’s singing the theme tune for the upcoming 007 flick Skyfall. She has joined the likes of Dame Shirley Bassey, Tom Jones, Sir Paul McCartney, Louis Armstrong, Madonna, and, er, Rita Coolidge in that rarefied group of artists who’ve lent their pipes to a Bond theme. (And perhaps, given Adele’s golden girl status, this will be the first 007 theme to hit No. 1 in the U.S. since Duran Duran‘s “A View to a Kill” 27 years ago.) Good on her.

What are your thoughts on Adele singing the Bond theme? Tell us below:

While not British himself—he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri—he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
