UPDATE (9/8): Sony Pictures Entertainment along with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios and Albert R. Broccoli’s EON Productions have all confirmed that Sam Smith has already recorded the theme song “Writing’s On The Wall” for the upcoming James Bond film, SPECTRE. The song is set to be released on September 25 via Capitol Records.
It has been rumored for a while now that the theme song for the new James Bond film, Spectre, would be sung by none other than Sam Smith. With a tease on his Twitter account today, it seems more likely than ever that Smith is going to be behind the theme tune to the film. This would mean he’s beaten out potential candidates including Lorde, Ed Sheeran (for some reason), Lana Del Rey, and even Adele (who sang the theme tune to 2012’s James Bond film, Skyfall).
Last week he repeatedly denied rumors regarding his involvement with the theme tune, saying “That’s definitely not me” when he appeared on BBC Radio 2. However, this black-and-white photo of his hand adorning a ring with the SPECTRE symbol on it seems to say otherwise. Shared via Twitter and Instagram, the hand in the photo is definitely his (notice the tattoo). This is either an incredibly elaborate and vaguely mean-spirited ruse, or a sign of things to come.
The theme song for the movie will be dropping at some point tomorrow, so even if he might have given it away a little bit earlier than planned, we won’t have to wait too much longer to find out who is really behind Spectre‘s theme song. See the image he shared on his socials below.
