The song is up for pre-order now, if you want to avoid a potential shortage for, er, a digital release.
Sam Smith is very good at singing.
The song mixes Smith’s baritone and falsetto and has a title that likely refers to an image from the Spectre trailer in which Bond’s name is ominously spray painted on a cenotaph. “Anyone picking up a few Earth Song vibes?” one person tweeted.
After releasing the song Friday, Smith was no less excited. “I just care about doing the legacy proud”. In the lyrics – “How do I live, how do I breathe?” Sam said: “He’s got every single poster, every single figurine”. It’s big and dramatic and showcases the full range of Sam Smith’s extraordinary voice. The unique British singer has followed the footsteps of Shirley Bassey, Madonna and Adele and honestly? Unfortunately don’t love the new Sam Smith one.
Written for Spectre, “Writing’s On the Wall” is a theatrical track featuring haunting strings and quiet vocals from the British crooner.
And again: “A James Bond theme should be stirring and exciting”. Check out the trailer to see if the song matches the movie.
The wait is over for James Bond fans as the theme tune for the new Spectre film has finally landed.
But while many loved every second, others have even accused the star of “ripping off” Michael Jackson’s hit Earth Song.
He said: “I’m sh****ing myself”.
She also spoke about playing a Bond song on the day Diana, Princess of Wales died.
“I think the whole world fancies Daniel Craig”.
Tell Us: Do you think Sam Smith’s “Writing’s on the Wall” is better than Adele’s “Skyfall”?
