London - Adele has reportedly been asked to sing the next James Bond theme song.

Bosses of the spy franchise are so impressed with the Oscar winning theme to Skyfall - written and recorded by Adele with producer Paul Epworth - that they want her to work on the next instalment when it goes into production.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Producers are thrilled by how well the song has been received and hope Adele's presence on the next film will replicate that success. They want her to become as synonymous with Bond as Dame Shirley [Bassey]."

Welsh singer Shirley sang the themes to three James Bond films: Goldfinger in 1964, Diamonds Are Forever in 1972 and 1979's Moonraker.

However, Skyfall is the most awarded and successful Bond theme of all time, selling over three million copies worldwide.

'Until I'm ready'

Fans are also keen to hear new songs from the star - who's 21 album has sold over 25 million copies since release in January 2011 - but is waiting for inspiration to hit.

"They'll come when they're ready, and when I've got something to sing about," she said.

The 24-year-old singer - who had her first baby, Angelo, with partner Simon Konecki last October - has previously said she was planning to settle into family life before recording again.

She said in 2011: "I'm just going to lay some concrete, set up home and just 'be' for a bit. There will be no new music until it's good enough and until I'm ready."
