New Song: Sam Smith – ‘Writing’s On The Wall’ [James Bond ‘Spectre’ Theme]

Published: Friday 25th Sep 2015 by Sam

Sam Smith‘s hotly anticipated theme for the James Bond Spectre movie has fired off at radio. But will it hit like a bullet?

Premiered moments ago on BBC Radio 1, ‘Writing’s On The Wall’ was penned by Smith and Jimmy Napes – who also co-produced the cut with subtle assistance from Disclosure.

Take a listen below…

Very ‘Bond’esque and a fine follow-up to Adele’s ‘Skyfall.’ We approve. Do you?

    Boring. Give me Gladys Knights licence to kill or the older themes any day.
    I’m still hoping that Alexandra, Joss, Jessie or Leona will sing the theme song one day.
    Better still, Fantasia!

    Well my honey DID that. Don’t know why the critics are divided with some calling it the worst. Sam Smith is bigger than Bond right now. I’m here for the song, don’t really care for the film. His vocal is amazing. Mariah should take note.
    SAMs voice is so angelic it restored my virginity ready for him to take it again!
    When will your fave be called upon to sing for a Bond film???

    • Really? September 25, 2015

    • Who gonna check me boo?? September 25, 2015

      Shut your ass up you know nothing about the movie business Fäagg Smith is not bigger than an Multi billion dollar timeless movie franchise and Mariah is A legend she don’t need to take note from some newcomer

        Who are you talking to? Don’t address me unless you are addressed. You are not FedEx bish

      Mariah is the blueprint for Sam and Adele. Stop trolling, sis.

    • Chillitsjustpizza September 25, 2015

      Adele cough i mean Sam could nvr come for mariah…

      • Everyone’s A Critic September 25, 2015

        Adele could never lose the pounds like my boy Sam did

    • marco September 25, 2015

      Mariah could bring an emotional beautiful theme to this BOND franchise. A song like “The Wind”, “Looking In”, “Subtle Invitation”.

      Mariah could really bring it and some much needed Iconic belts.

      I say next year, Mariah should do this theme.

  5. Christina Aguilera September 25, 2015

    Rebecca Ferguson would have slayed that song

  6. Truth B Told September 25, 2015

    He is the lady gaga to Madonna.. Adele wants her career back #boybeyounother

  7. Where Is R8? September 25, 2015

    It was cute…for Sam

  8. Londontru September 25, 2015

    Should have been es sheeran hes a bigger star and a better writer. This track sounds ljke toilet water
    Not feeling it sam bess be careful
    I like this dude hope he can come hard for the second album his voice is dope
    But this song melodicly and lyrically is trash

  9. Jamie September 25, 2015

    He has that Beans from That’s So Raven/Mr. Dink from Doug type of speech.

  10. What now September 25, 2015

    It sounds so epic. I just hope that the Bond movie is actually worth writer m watching.

  11. Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans September 25, 2015

    It’s a great song and he delivers as usual. I just hope that the next artist to do a James Bond theme links up in the studio with Madonna to create a “Die Another Day” part 2 for the future film. Madonnas theme is one of the most iconic, commercially-successful, and widely-regarded themes for the Movies.

    • Christina Aguilera September 25, 2015

      Not ass iconic as Golden Eye ane Gold Finger…

      • Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans September 25, 2015

        I agree, but you have to admit that Madonna’s theme was like NONE others. The depth of the lyrics, the metaphysical questioning of the purpose of her loving, even the mention of Sigmund Freud separated this theme from the rest by light years. I’m still impressed by how successful it was, even though it was so experimental and it came from her flop “American Life” era, in which at that time she was publicly scrutinized for being anti-American. That song is a thought-provoking masterpiece.

    Dull as dishwater. Zzz zzz.

  13. E Young September 25, 2015

    And the Oscar goes too…
