Sam Smith Confirmed to Sing James Bond ‘Spectre’ Theme Song

Posted on September 8, 2015


I KNEW IT!!! SIXTEEN HOURS before he confirmed, I already asked Sam Smith on twitter (as if he had times to confirm anyway) whether or not he’d be singing the next 007’s song when he posted a picture of his beautiful hairy fingers with a ‘SPECTRE’ ring on it. And then.. voila, Sam Smith finally and officially confirmed that speculation, yay!!!

Grammy-winning British vocalist Sam Smith has been confirmed as co-writer and performer of the theme song of upcoming James Bond film “Spectre.”

The song “Writing’s On The Wall” will be released on Sept. 25, a month ahead of the movie’s theatrical debut on Oct. 26 in the. U.K. The North American release of “Spectre” is set for Nov. 6.

The announcement by distributor Sony Pictures Entertainment came only a day after Smith dropped a heavy hint on social media. He posted on Twitter and Instagam accounts a photo of him wearing a “Spectre” ring.

and then SIXTEEN HOURS later:

“Sam and Jimmy Napes have written the most inspirational song for ‘Spectre’ and with Sam’s extraordinary vocal performance, ‘Writing’s On The Wall’ will surely be considered one of the greatest Bond songs of all time,” said producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, in a statement.

As befits the usual cloak of secrecy surrounding the Bond series, Smith on several previous occasions had denied that he was doing the “Spectre” song. “That’s not me,” he told BBC Radio 2.
