With the release of a new Bond film there is always anticipation surrounding the new theme song. Sam Smith has not disappointed with the release of ‘Writing’s On The Wall’, the first ever Bond theme to reach the top spot in the UK. With the help of producers Disclosure and writer Jimmy Napes, the new track for film Spectre is everything a Bond theme should be—exquisite vocals alongside dramatic pauses with tension building piano and orchestral instrumentals. Following 53 years of Bond films and 23 signature songs Smith has done well to keep the Bond theme fresh, exciting and effortlessly cool.
