Sam Smith was chosen to record a song for the new James Bond film, Spectre. ‘Writing’s On The Wall’ is the name of the tune and it is a slow piano ballad. The horns and strings add some flare and definitely give this song a Bond feel. Sam sounds amazing and his vocals are perfect for this slow song. I don’t know much about this new Bond movie yet, but I like what I hear!
Sam was really excited about this song saying it was the “highlight of his career” and he was excited to be a part of this British legacy among many more artists. The last Bond movie featured the Adele track ‘Skyfall.’ This morning he shared his excitement on Instagram about the song already hitting #1. I can only imagine what it is like waking up and seeing that! Congrats, Sam!
Spectre is in theaters on November 6, 2015. You can watch the trailer here.
