Smith....Sam Smith

Sam Smith is now the king of keeping it on the down low! He took to social media to finally announce, keyword= “finally”, that he is the voice behind the new James Bond movie’s theme song. In his interview with the Radio 1 “Breakfast Show”, he revealed the song was written in twenty minutes and recorded in January!  "This is one of the highlights of my career," the “Stay With Me” songbird tweeted Tuesday. "I am honoured to finally announce that I will be singing the next Bond theme song.”
The song is called "Writing's on the Wall," and won’t be released until late September. The movie debuts October 26 in the United Kingdom and November 6 in the United States.

Now the Bond movies pattern coining the "that" guy or the itgirl for their featured song, the latest being Adele (Skyfall") who was nominated for Best Original Song at the 2013 Academy Awards. Other artists include Madonna ("Die Another Day") and Tina Turner (GoldenEye). Sam Smith has been at the top of the charts consistently with his debut album earning FOUR Grammys.

Congratulations to Sam Smith for not only having the honor to write and perform for the James Bond franchise but also holding in a money-making secret for months! Kudos!
