Adele’s Bond theme sets Oct. 5 digital release

Track for 'Skyfall' may be last work from singer for a while

Top-selling Brit vocalist Adele’s theme for the new James Bond pic “Skyfall” will be issued digitally on Oct. 5, following its Web debut on Adele.TV.

Track, now available for pre-order on iTunes, was penned by the singer and writer-producer Paul Epworth, a key collaborator on Adele’s bestselling, Grammy-winning sophomore album “21.” The 2011 collection, last year’s biggest release and this year’s best seller to date, has sold more than 9.4 million copies domestically and more than 24 million worldwide.

Much anticipated track will probably be the pregnant vocalist’s last release for some time. Adele has said in recent interviews that she may take a break from the studio for as long as two years.

The “Skyfall” tune was recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London with a 77-piece orchestra. It will be released on the 50th anniversary of the premiere of “Dr. No,” the first installment of the durable movie franchise based on Ian Fleming’s spy novels.

Adele follows in the footsteps of such Bond title song interpreters as Paul McCartney & Wings, Madonna, Duran Duran, Sheryl Crow, Tina Turner, Gladys Knight and Shirley Bassey.

The singer said in a statement, “I’ll be back combing my hair when I’m 60 telling people I was a Bond girl back in the day I’m sure!”

“Skyfall,” directed by Sam Mendes and again starring Daniel Craig as Bond, will be released Oct. 26 in the U.K. and Nov. 9 Stateside.
