New Song: Adele – ‘Skyfall’

Published: Thursday 4th Oct 2012 by Sam

It’s here!

Adele‘s James Bond 007 theme ‘Skyfall’ premiered on radio literally seconds ago.

As ever, we have your first online listen! What are you waiting for? ‘Skyfall’ awaits below!

Adele, Adele, Adele. What kind of slayage on a Thursday night? ‘Skyfall’ is simply sublime.

Easily the most moving Bond theme since Tina Turner‘s ‘GoldenEye’, the cut packs with the same rawness and emotive that makes so much of the Londoner’s catalogue such a compelling listen

Say hello to the year’s next chart-topping blockbuster. *Hits replay*

    Really ? What a crap !
    I don”t understand all this enthusiasm around Adele. Seriously.

  7. Bey Fan October 4, 2012

    I loves it….. I dont think its the best theme song for 007 …. but I really like the song. Adele is just great.

    I can also see why some ppl are calling it boring/typical ….. I dont agree…but I can see where they’re coming from.

    It will go straight to #1 and block the R******!

    • JuanR October 4, 2012


  10. me October 4, 2012

    if u find the song boring, no problem, music like this is for people like me who love music with a classic and laid back feel, not u. she will snatch ur fave’s bald head with slow music while they go round the round and embarrass themselves trying to get hits

  11. KD October 4, 2012

    The 21 era just killed any fascination I had with Adele or her music. #OverKill

    • me October 4, 2012

      did 4 also do the same? u r just jealous of adele because she blocked ur fave from winning grammys while sitting on a chair. u know 21 is a classic and that fact is going nowhere. u just pressed coz she overshadowed ur fave.


      • Lax October 4, 2012

        @ME….U R so right on.

  12. RoyalKev October 4, 2012

    When it first cam eon I thought this is hauntingly s***, but after a while I started yawning. This is far from bad, but I won’t play this again.

    • Bey Fan October 4, 2012

      this is why I said I can see why some ppl would call it boring. After about a min and a half, I kinda stop listening. But I still love it. Its no “Rolling In The Deep” tho….

  13. Hybridavenue October 4, 2012

    This is a classic bond song, it fits so perfect!!!

  14. hotterboi October 4, 2012

    awesome, as a fan of the bond franchise, i thinks its fits perfectly. nice job.

  15. October 4, 2012

    It sounds exactly like a Bond song. The end.

  16. Lax October 4, 2012

    The Adele is such a talented Artist, love her and her music.
    Hmmmmm i wonder where the fake ADELE POSTER
    Who’s always on the Rihanna post trying to shyt talk the navy.

    • THE LEGENDARY LAX October 4, 2012

      Adele>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>.Rihanna Your Fave will never

  17. Auntie_Jackie October 4, 2012

    Good Bond song! It’s not meant to be catchy single material, it’s for a soundtrack people! Amy was supposed to do the Bond theme at one point *cries* but she was too far gone, so they gave it to Alicia Keys.

    • Sarah Says October 4, 2012

      I disagree, some bond songs are catchy and hang in your mind. example: My fave, Gladys Knight – Licence to Kill. The song gets me everytime, catchy, anthemic, great vocals….
      This song is okay but too Adele. It would’ve been nice of her to change it up instead of making it sound like a 21 bonus track. I also thinkl 21 was overrated, Rolling in the deep is still my jam but the rest has been removed from my mp3 player.

      • Anne October 5, 2012

        I would have to agree. Gladys Knight’s ‘License to Kill’ is my favorite Bond song. It commands your attention from beginning to end and there is no drop in intensity. I think ‘Skyfall’ starts strong but falls kinda flat somewhere near the middle and thru the rest. It’s still a nice song and Adele gave a good vocal performance, it just doesn’t hit me like some of the other Bond songs.

  18. monstarebel October 4, 2012

    I said this s*** was guna be wack from jump yall the ones acting like this song was guna be epic or some s***

    • Ren October 4, 2012

      You’re a f*****.

  19. manfred October 4, 2012

    total waste of my time. a baby can write such crap. the chorus is useless

  20. TNAiPM October 4, 2012

    This is amazing, the production and quality is just perfect – It’s one of the most brilliant Bond songs – I feel goosebumps – I see many big things for this song! It’s genius as ADELE always is and she could do no wrong with a Bond theme tune.

  21. bibi93 October 4, 2012

    good song

  22. Skyfall October 4, 2012

    I love Adele but this is very predictable . I hope she comes out with a new different sound for her next album , and that she doesn’t take 7 seven years to put it out like Nelly Furtado it’d be really bad to think to the world is awaiting you honey . 3 years top!
    Ps : Are Beyoncé and Adele the only real real performers these days ? urgh!

  23. JOHNVIDAL October 4, 2012

    It sounds very good. Adele´s voice is so beautiful… but her voice has its limitations. And it shows from the middle of the song and on. It becomes a little bit boring
    This has NOTHING on Tina Turner´s epic Bond´s theme (Goldeneye). That was epic. Sheryl Crow´s song for James Bond was better too for example
    What I mean is that Adele has this good and amaningly beautiful voice… but it´s far from epic. She shines on some of her songs in 21 and specially 19 albums. But more than that is too big for her. It´s the same case of a Beyonce (Adele obviously being more talented for music overall, don´t get me wrong). They just can´t be epic. They don´t ahve a voice for that. The aren´t Whitney, Celine or Mariah. People are fascinated with Adele cos of the crappy last 10 years we have had in mainstream music, but it´s not legendary epicness at all

  24. THAT A.D.E.L.E. REIGN JUST WON’T LET UP October 4, 2012

    That woman is a f****** LEGEND.

  25. POP ROYALTY ( RUDE BOY) October 4, 2012

    my bet is on adele , she will be the last one to stand tall among these b****** ……..

    mark my words.

    • mob: Breezy Lovin’ October 4, 2012

      Hello and that truly is the true tea you just spilt!! 🙂

      I can’t believe all the hatred I’m reading. This song is amazing and her voice appears to be back to normal. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not for the media CANONIZATION of Adele to HIGH PRIESTESS but the chick can blow and that’s for sure!!

      • POP ROYALTY ( RUDE BOY) October 5, 2012

        i agree 🙂


  26. THAT A.D.E.L.E. REIGN JUST WON’T LET UP October 4, 2012

    I couldn’t believe it was premiered when @LAX told me about “that Adele post”.

    ADELE’s vocals >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

  27. THAT A.D.E.L.E. REIGN JUST WON’T LET UP October 4, 2012

    Guys does anybody know if this song will get the video treatment?

    • POP ROYALTY ( RUDE BOY) October 4, 2012

      homegirl is preggo ….

      • oh baby (b****** will Deal) October 5, 2012

        So what she’s pregnant? It doesn’t mean she’s dead?
        And to the original poster, idk what it’ll be, but I bet money she’ll be sitting on a throne (big chair) and walking around a ballroom with scenes from the movie playing in the background. Wearing a long black shimmering night gown with her pregnant behind 😉 Not a fan of the song, but it’s Adele so it’s gonna be big…pun intended

  28. Ayana October 4, 2012

    Nice song. Definitely James Bond appropriate. Listened to it multiple times though, and still not completely sure what exactly she’s talking about. I like Adele, and this is song is definitely her. However, and this is no shade to her whatsoever, but for this particular track, I kinda think I’d probably enjoy the instrumental version better.

  29. mc the place to be!! October 4, 2012

    I like it its good for the James bond movie and ppl shut up its not even a new single from her new album and if it was it’ll slay trust me the older audience has more power than these kids why because they have money to buy s*** which is why I don’t understand these artist today catering to the wrong crowd no wonder why record sales declined why would someone who’s 40 would listen to starships and run the world?? Smh

    • Absolved October 4, 2012

      Why would someone over 40 listen to “Triumphant.” Better question: why would someone over 40 even make that s***?

      • oh baby (b****** will Deal) October 5, 2012

        @absolved……oop!! Girl you better not slay me like that! Lol best comeback ever 😉

      • mc the place to be!! October 7, 2012

        which is the reason why someone like jlo makes on the floor and goin in at 43 and hell jay z who f***** talks about b****** h*** and h*** when he has a wife and child at home which is a way worst records s*** and triumphant has rappers in it so what atleast shes not doing anything sexual to play with mc she can buy your faves career and their label and still have s*** left over

  30. King. October 4, 2012

    The lyrics are very much adele, the production makes the song great though. I love how dramatic and dark it is.

  31. mob: Breezy Lovin’ October 4, 2012

    I LOVE IT!!. This has sort of a Portishead feel to it!

    You better SANG Adele!!

  32. MC October 4, 2012

    I like it. Sounds like Adele. I think she is very talented it shows more in her 19 album than 21. People were so into 21 like it was the last ever album.

  33. Alekzander October 4, 2012

    I like it. It fits the Bond franchise just fine but I don’t think it’s as epic as Tina’s “GoldenEye” but the ending of Skyfall <3 <<<<<<<<<

  34. kevin October 4, 2012

    Not even close to Goldeneye but it’s a slow burning s*** tune in line with the Bond movies.

  35. PrettigurlrockD Bitchess October 4, 2012

    She has a unique tone. So deep and lovely but to be honest there was no climax so I immediately got bored. Not something I’d listen to again.

  36. Absolved October 5, 2012

    All I care about is that it’s going to upstage Rislutta.

  37. Realest October 5, 2012

    The song totally sets the mood of “Bond” it does its purpose and those of you who aren’t into it OH WELL!

  38. Saetana October 5, 2012

    Oh come on, this songs fits reasonably well with the Bond franchise but frankly its not that good. I expected better from Adele, she has made this sound like half a dozen other Bond songs. Boring sound and meaningless lyrics, I’ll be surprised if this does really well in the charts as its boring and slow ;o)
