The news that Adele was to due to release the official James Bond tune for Skyfall has quickly been met with the news that the single’s been leaked online, as is so often the case with high profile musical releases. The song, due to be released this Friday (October 5th) to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the famous 007 agent, had appeared online soon after reporters got their mitts on it. The news will come as a sad blow for Adele, as she was excited about the prospect of being a Bond girl, of sorts. "I was a little hesitant at first to be involved with the theme song for Skyfall. There's a lot of instant spotlight and pressure when it comes to a Bond song," she said. "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!” added the Grammy and Brit award-winning singer.
Adele will still be able to see her song on one of the most famous film franchises in the world, and certainly a quintessentially British institution. She was hesitant at first, but now she’s fully on board: "It was also a lot of fun writing to a brief, something I've never done, which made it exciting. When we recorded the strings it was one of the proudest moments of my life."
