British singer and songwriter Sam Smith’s title track for the latest James Bond movie premiered this morning.
SPECTRE arrives in UK cinemas on 26 October and in the US on 6 November.
Co-written with Jimmy Napes, Sam Smith’s ‘Writing’s On The Wall’ is available to buy from 23 October and received its first play on BBC Radio 1’s breakfast show with Nick Grimshaw earlier.

Smith commented earlier this month: “This is one of the highlights of my career. I am honoured 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.”
The track is the first Bond theme song to be recorded by a British male solo artist since Tom Jones sang ‘Thunderball’ in 1965.
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.”
