Labrinth - Labrinth pens James Bond theme tune?

Labrinth thinks he's penned the next James Bond theme tune.

The rapper has been hard at work crafting his second album and says one of the more experimental songs would make the perfect soundtrack to Sam Mendes' next chapter in the spy franchise.

He told the Daily Star newspaper: ''I've been buying a lot of equipment like microphones. I'm a geek at the moment. I've got a James Bond-themed record on my album as well. If they want it for the new film then they can have it.

''I've ordered an orchestra to record one of the songs I'm putting together, which is expensive. It's a really cool record and I can't wait for people to hear it. Creatively I think this one is going to be on the next level. You're going to hear more layers. I'm really hoping for it to be out this year.''

The chart-topping star is also leading the Project Noise campaign, which letting fans upload their sounds which he can then incorporate into his own tracks.

Apart from some rather risqué recordings, Labrinth intends to use as many submissions as possible to make his new tracks sound more layered.

He said: ''I think pretty much everything can be used in some way, but maybe don't send me a recording of a sex tape. I don't need that - let's keep it censored. I like to think people are going to go the extra mile to make something really cool.

''I think you fall in love with music in layers. When I was a kid I listened to the surface of it. I didn't know about melody or the beat. When you start to produce music you need more kicks out of it.''
