Adele‘s new Bond theme “Skyfall” received nearly unanimous praise upon its release last week, and it has already stormed the charts: it’s currently No. 2 on the iTunes digital chart behind Taylor Swift‘s “I Knew You Were Trouble.” (C’mon, Taylor Swift is beating Adele? Please fix this terrifying and unacceptable injustice, Anglophenians.)

But one can only truly appreciate the epic scale of the song with some visuals behind it, and Sony Pictures has released a new “Skyfall” promo melding Adele’s yearning vocals with adrenaline-fueled clips from the film. Can November 9 get here quickly enough?

What do you think of this new clip?

His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
