When Sam Mendes’ Skyfall was first released back in 2012, movie fans went into the film hoping that it would at least be a return-to-form for the James Bond franchise following the disappointing Quantum of Solace. What they got ended up not only bringing the franchise back to new heights, but also ended up being one of the best installments in the franchise’s history. The movie was dark, moody, character driven,and featured one of the best villains in Bond history with Javier Bardem’s Silva.
The movie also featured one of the best Bond theme songs ever created sung by Adele, and was so critically well-received that it won an Oscar for its respective year. So among all of the new possibilities that this year’s Spectre might bring, it’ll be interesting to see how the film’s new theme song (which we’ve heard almost nothing about) ends up doing compared to its incredible predecessor.
Well, HitFix has revealed today that the official theme song for Spectre will be unveiled to the public tomorrow, and it looks like we might finally know who will be singing it. There have been rampant rumors running around online for the past few months regarding who will be taking on the new song for the latest Bond installment with Ellie Goulding and Radiohead both rumored at points. However, Sam Smith recently tweeted out the following image, and if this isn’t confirmation that he’ll be singing the new Bond tune, then I don’t know what is:

As you can see, the image features what we can presume is the award-winning singer’s hand, with the Spectre ring from the movie’s trailer on one of his fingers. Smith had been rumored as well a few months back for the song, but judging by the recent release date announcement and this photo, I think we can officially call it confirmed.
Aside from being a genuinely good song, “Skyfall” also managed to perfectly embody the tone and themes of the film. So considering how much about Spectre has been kept in secret up until this point, it’ll be interesting to see how much we can learn about the movie from Smith’s song alone. Judging by the trailers, the movie looks like one of the genuinely creepiest Bond films yet, and I can only imagine what Smith’s voice might sound like with that kind of tone. Luckily, we won’t have to wait long to find out.
Spectre is set to hit theatres on November 6th.
