Smith told BBC Radio 1: “Out of all the songs I’ve brought out in my life, I was not expecting this to even chart in the Top 10, let alone Number 1. It’s unbelievable.”

The official synopsis for SPECTRE reads: “A cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organisation. While M battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind SPECTRE.”
