It's official. As of 0:07 London time, Adele's James Bond theme song, "Skyfall," is now streaming on her website, a few weeks before the series' latest film, starring Daniel Craig, hits theaters.
Adele's voice is accompanied by a giant 77-piece orchestra on the Paul Epworth-produced song, which definitely sounds like another James Bond classic, joining previous themes recorded by Paul McCartney, Nancy Sinatra and Madonna.
For 24 hours beginning at 6 a.m. local time on Friday, Oct. 5, Clear Channel will be playing "Skyfall" every hour on all of its mainstream top 40, adult top 40 and adult contemporary stations, similar to recent hourly-airplay launches for Rihanna's "Diamonds" and Taylor Swift's "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together."
This song is obviously headed to the top, considering it's also Adele's first studio recording since her album 21 released in January 2011.
"Skyfall" is now available on iTunes.
