Sam Smith Scores First Ever Bond Theme Number One With Spectre Tune
The 23-year-old follows in the footsteps of Adele's Oscar-winning 'Skyfall'
Congratulations to Sam Smith who has landed the first ever number one with a Bond theme for the latest movie, Spectre. According to officialcharts.com Sam’s song, ‘The Writing’s On The Wall,’ has combined chart sales and streams of 70,000. This is the musicians fifth UK number one.
The fact that Sam was singing the song was one of the worst kept secrets in showbiz land with the 23-year-old announcing the news a few weeks back via a rather cryptic picture on Twitter.
Smith posted a photo of his hand wearing a silver ring with a design that kinda looks like a ghostly octopus – turns out that’s theSpectresymbol.
He then put us all out of our misery by formally announcing the project: ‘This is one of the highlights of my career. I am honoured to finally announce that I will be singing the next Bond theme song,’ he tweeted.
‘I am so excited to be a part of this iconic British legacy and join an incredible line up of some of my biggest musical inspirations.
‘I hope you all enjoy the song as much as I enjoyed making it.’
Spectredirector Sam Mendes confirmed the track had been written and recorded in July, saying: ‘I can say that the song’s been recorded and it’s fantastic and I’m very excited about it.
