Adele is the new Bond

 

Adele, “Skyfall”

Film: Skyfall

 

It’s not surprising that Adele was chosen to lend her voice to the new James Bond theme song, and it’s even more unsurprising that the subsequent tune is the best since Goldfinger– dark, sultry and quietly menacing.

Skilfully walking the tightrope between tradition and modernity, the sumptuous orchestral backing surges behind Adele’s thick vocals, managing to sound both uplifting and chilling at the same time.
