MANILA, Philippines - Sony Pictures Entertainment today confirmed that Sam Smith has recorded “Writing’s On The Wall,” the theme song to Spectre, the 24th James Bond adventure.  
 
Spectre will be released in the UK on October 26 and in the US and the Philippines on November 6.  The song, released by Capitol Records, will debut and be available to purchase and stream on September 25.
 
It is the first James Bond theme song recorded by a British male solo artist since 1965.  
 
Commenting on the announcement, Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, the producers of Spectre, said, “Sam and Jimmy (Naples, who co-wrote the song) have written the most inspirational song for Spectre and with Sam’s extraordinary vocal performance, ‘Writing’s On The Wall’ will surely be considered one of the greatest Bond songs of all time.”
 
Smith said: “This is one of the highlights of my career. I am honored to finally announce that I will be singing the next Bond theme song. I am so excited to be a part of this iconic British legacy and join an incredible line up of some of my biggest musical inspirations.  I hope you all enjoy the song as much as I enjoyed making it.”
 
The 23 previous James Bond theme songs make up some of the most memorable movie music of all time.  The previous Bond theme song, “Skyfall,” was performed by Adele, and was honored with the Academy Award and Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song, the Brit Award for British Single of the Year, and the Grammy Award for Best Song Written for Visual Media. 
 
Smith’s debut album In The Lonely Hour launched at No. 1 in the UK and bowed in at No. 2 in the US, and has since earned five No.1 UK singles, four Grammy Awards, three Brit Awards, six MOBO Awards, Q and AMA Awards.
