Adele releases the new theme for the upcoming James Bond thriller, “Skyfall,” on her website this evening and it’s not that catchy, but it’s signature James Bond, cliches and all. “Skyfall” was co-written by Adele and Paul Epsworth. It utilized a 77-piece orchestra and was recorded at the Abby Road Studio. Adele is no Dame Shirley Bassey, who gave us the memorable “Goldfinger,” “Diamonds are Forever” and “Moonraker” theme songs.
