Adele's Bond theme 'best in 30 years'

Los Angeles - Adele's James Bond theme song has been hailed the best of the last 30 years.

The Someone Like You singer has recorded the theme for the latest film in the spy franchise, Skyfall, with producer Paul Epworth and it has been given the seal of approval by songwriter Ryan Tedder.

Ryan tweeted: "I've heard it. Best bond song in my lifetime. Hands down. Hats off once again to Paul Epworth and Adele. hope they win Oscar (sic)."

Adele has previously worked with Paul on massive single Rolling in the Deep from her huge 21 album, which also featured the song Rumour Has it, co-written and produced by 33-year-old OneRepublic frontman.

'It's going to explode'

Adele's publicist Paul Moss also tweeted about her latest track, which is reportedly called Let The Sky Fall.

He wrote: "Are you ready for the Skyfall Theme song? Hope you are because it's coming and it's going to explode."

By singing a Bond theme, Adele joins an exclusive club of performers which includes Sir Paul McCartney, Dame Shirley Bassey, Duran Duran, Tina Turner, Tom Jones, Garbage and Madonna, among others.

Adele's track is expected to be unveiled next week.

    i have never heard of Ryan Tedder but he has clearly not heard of the Oscar rules. all Bond themes include an element of John Barry's original theme, meaning they are not 100% original compositions for the film, meaning they are disqualified from Oscar contention. will this theme be better than the Duran Duran or Tina Turner one from the last 30 years? quite a statement, must be one of the greatest songs ever then!

      Actually that's not correct. Both Live and Let Die (by Wings) and Nobody Does It Better (by Carly Simon) were nominated for Academy Awards for best song.

    Ok, maybe I'm a cynical prick, but the songwriter and the singer's publicist say that it is the best Bond theme, and we are expected to take this article seriously? Surely they are not the most objective commentators on this issue? Anyway, now that they have built up the suspense, cannot wait to hear it.
