After reading the script for the film, Adele enlistedPaul Epworthto co-write and produce the theme song to “Skyfall.” Adele admits, “I was a little hesitant at first to beinvolved with the theme song for Skyfall. There’s a lot of instant spotlight and pressure when it comes to a Bond song. But I fell in love with the script and Paul had some great ideas for the track and it ended up being a bit of a no brainer to do it in the end. It was also a lot of fun writing to a brief, something I’ve never done, which made it exciting. When we recorded the strings it was one of the proudest moments of my life. I’ll be back combing my hair when I’m 60 telling people I was a Bond girl back in the day I’m sure!”Recorded at Abbey Road Studios inLondon, “Skyfall” features the lush accompaniment of a 77-piece orchestra.
