Winehouse And Ronson Revive Bond Theme Plans

by | 24 May 2008

Amy Winehouse and Mark Ronson have resumed work on a planned theme song for the new James Bond movie.

The Rehab star and the popular producer had begun to collaborate on a theme for Quantum of Solace, the 22nd 007 film, only for Ronson to scrap the project earlier this month.

He had claimed Winehouse, 24, may not be "ready to work on music yet" and said he doubted the song would ever be released.

But speaking at the Ivor Novello awards on Thursday, the English-American music producer and the Grammy-winning singer confirmed they were reviving their Bond theme bid.

"I've written the song," Winehouse told the Mirror newspaper. "If they like it they like it, if they don't they don't."

Ronson, 32, added: "If I talk about it Daniel Craig will whack me in the eyes."

He added: "Amy wrote the song on an acoustic guitar. It was my job to help with the arrangement and realise the sound that we were going for. So that was my role."

Londoner Winehouse has struggled with alleged drug addiction and been beset with legal troubles in recent months but her spokesman said earlier this month that these issues were not the reason for the project originally stalling.

He said: "Mark has presented a track to Amy, but she had other ideas about the direction it should take. She has always made her own decisions about her music."
