Who Will Be Singing the Next Bond Song?

31 July 2015 10:50 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Even though we have three more long months before the release of the next Bond film, Spectre, people are already buzzing about who will sing the film's theme song. It's going to be tough to beat Adele's Oscar-winning song "Skyfall," but we're sure whoever lands the gig will do a spectacular job. Bond-tune buffs Adrian Daub and Charlie Kronengold list off their best guesses in this post originally featured on Oxford University Press's blog. Image Source: Columbia Pictures Now's the moment to be a fan of the Bond songs. Spectre, the new film, comes out this November. That means we'll hear an official unofficial leak of the title song sometime this Summer. Everybody's been guessing who the singer is. Twitter says it'll be Sam Smith or Lana Del Rey. Sam Smith says it isn't him and claims that he "heard Ellie Goulding was going to do it." The Telegraph »

Last year, Rita Ora sang the Beyond the Lights theme song 'Grateful', but the film's director Gina Prince-Bythewood seemingly regrets her decision to ask Ora.

Yesterday (July 25) Prince-Bythewood held a Q&A on Twitter while sharing behind the scenes facts from Beyond the Lights.

On one particular question, Prince-Bythewood was asked how the British singer got involved with the movie and whether she asked Ora to sing 'Grateful'.

"i asked her. wish i didn't as she didn't promote song at all," Prince-Bythewood responded.

@filmkhaleesi i asked her. wish i didn't as she didn't promote song at all.

— Gina PrinceBythewood (@GPBmadeit) July 26, 2015

Written by Diane Warren, 'Grateful' was nominated for Best Original Song at the Academy Awards and Ora was invited to perform it at the ceremony earlier this year.

The song lost to Selma's 'Glory' by John Legend and Common.
