Adele is following in the imposing footsteps of Shirley Bassey, Carly Simon, and Duran Duran–and the less impressive ones of Sheryl Crow and Chris Cornell–with her new theme song to the upcoming James Bond thriller Skyfall. Her song, according to Roger Friedman, is to be called “Let the Sky Fall” and feature the lyric “Let the sky fall/Let it crumble/We will stand tall/And face it all/together.”

This is Adele’s first new material since her mega-smash 21 album, which came out in January 2011 but which the singer is still promoting, with a current cover of Rolling Stone. It’s also to be the first James Bond title song to be performed by a big-voiced chanteuse since 1995’s Tina Turner “GoldenEye” (sorry, Madonna and Alicia Keys).
