Adele might be taking a break for her impending mommyhood, but the British songbird returned to her day job to cut the latest 007 theme song.
“Skyfall,” the song, was recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London with a 77-piece orchestra. It’s also Adele’s first recording since the release of the 24-million-selling “21” in early 2011.
The premiere of the song coincides with the 50th anniversary of the Bond film franchise on Oct. 5, which will be celebrated as Global James Bond Day.
