Sam Mendes has revealed that the new James Bond song for Spectre is complete.
The director, however, did not share who will be singing it. The last Bond song, ‘Skyfall’, was performed by award-winning singer Adele.
Mendes told BBC, “I can say that the song’s been recorded and it’s fantastic and I’m very excited about it. You won’t have to wait long.” Earlier this month, Ellie Goulding sparked speculation that she will be singing the new Bond song after tweeting: “Live and let die”.
Live and Let Die, written and recorded by Sir Paul McCartney, is the song title of a 1973 Bond film of the same name starring Roger Moore as the iconic Ian Fleming secret agent. Other previous artists who have performed the Bond theme song include Tom Jones for Thunderball, Louis Armstrong for On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, Carly Simon for The Spy Who Loved Me, Tina Turner for Goldeneye, Madonna for Die Another Day and Jack White and Alicia Keys for Quantum of Solace.
Mendes also said that Spectre is a “bigger movie than Skyfall” as it was filmed in many locations with a cast and crew of more than 1,000 people.
Spectre city locations included Rome, London, Mexico City and Tangier.
Spectre, again starring Daniel Craig as 007, will arrive in US theaters on November 6. No date has been announced for its UK arrival.
