Soul singer Sam Smith has announced today that he will sing the theme tune to this winter’s James Bond film Spectre.
The song is set to be unveiled to the public tomorrow, but the star took to his Twitter account earlier this afternoon to allude to his work on the film.
British singer Smith is best known for his single ‘Stay With Me’, which topped the UK charts and reached number two in America.
Rumours have been spreading for months over who would sing the latest Bond tune, with the likes of Radiohead and Ellie Goulding apparently in the frame to work on Spectre.
In recording a Bond theme, Smith joins such decorated artists as Shirley Bassey, Madonna and Adele, who recorded the title song for Skyfall.
Spectre is set for release in the UK on October 23rd in the UK and November 6th in the States. The film sees Sam Mendes (Skyfall) directing Bond veterans Daniel Craig as James Bond, Rory Kinnear as Tanner, Ben Whishaw as Q, Naomie Harris as Eve Moneypenny, Ralph Fiennes as M and Jesper Christensen as Mr. White, alongside franchise newcomers Andrew Scott (Pride) as Denbigh, Lea Seydoux (Blue is the Warmest Colour) as Madeleine Swann, Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy) as Mr. Hinx, Monica Bellucci (The Sorcerer’s Apprentice) as Lucia Sciarra, Stephanie Sigman (The Bridge) as Estrella and Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained) as Oberhauser.
