Listen To Adele's Full Skyfall Theme


Don't worry - it's better than Chris Cornell.

The full Skyfall theme has emerged online, and it is everything that we hoped it would be. A gentle piano verse makes way for the sweeping strings and soaring vocals of the chorus, before kicking into the classic Bond horn motif. Adele's voice shows no sign of the strain of undergoing microsurgery last year for a vocal cord problem: suffice to say that her fans (and there are a few) will love this.

It seems like this could well be up there up with the all-time classic Bond themes - and this can only bode well for the movie - due at the end of this month.
