According to reports, new chart star Sam Smith is in talks to record the theme song for the new Bond movie.
Following Adele’s Oscar success with Skyfall, if plans go ahead Sam could be set for the international stage with the as yet untitled 24th Bond film.
Mr Bond himself, Daniel Craig, is pushing for Adele to make a repeat performance. However a source closely involved with the project stated that “there is only so long we can hold out for Adele”
“Sam is our top choice. He has the profile, cool image and astonishing voice to record a Bond theme.”
If Sam is chosen he will be the first male singer to record a Bond song since 1965, when Tom Jones sang the theme for Thunderball.
Sam Smith may be a newcomer to the music world but he is rising fast. His debut album In The Lonely Hour entered the charts at number one in May, outselling Coldplay.
His next single ‘I’m Not The Only One’ will be released at the end of the month.
