It’s one year today that we get to see the next James Bond film, the 24th in the series. To aid in the search for the next Bond song artist, Richard Lawrence, who co-hosts the fantastic All of Whine and Space podcasts, offers his suggestions for who it should be.

Shirley Bassey, Paul McCartney and Duran Duran, to name just a few, have all had the privilege of singing for Bond, James Bond. But who will get the honour this time next year for the as yet-untitled Bond 24? There is almost a required style for a Bond song, but in the past this has been challenged. I present below a selection of artists who I’ve heard and think could do a great job.


Let gets things started….



Skyfall was an interesting attempt from the Londoner; you could argue that it’s just what we should have expected from Adele and the Bond theme for the 50th anniversary. The classic John Barry theme can be heard within the tune and the lyrics, which after the release of the film work to perfection. However for me and a few others I have spoken to believe Adele’s true talents lay in her up-tempo numbers like Rolling in the Deep and Set Fire to the RainSkyfall has some elements of speedier tempo, partly the choral singing about sky falling and being at Skyfall, but I feel the shackles of the 50th anniversary held Adele back from delivering a truly classic theme. Because of that I’d love to hear Adele have another crack, but maybe just in a film or two’s times.

Emeli Sande


I don’t want Adele to do Bond 24, so a way everyone could be happy is to allow Emeli to have that film’s theme. This would not be a huge departure from Adele as from what I’ve heard Emeli has a very similar range. There are the up-tempo songs like Heaven and then her version of Read All About It which is much slower, both demonstrating her range of vocal abilities with which she could tackle a Bond song. For me this is a safe pair of hands to continue the style that was chosen for Skyfall and with the majority of the same production staff returning this could add an air of freshness while staying familiar.

Legendary. Not just one of the greatest rock songs ever made, not just one of the greatest songs ever made, but, simply, one of the greatest things ever man.
