Noel Gallagher reacts to Sam Smith’s Bond theme: “I’d record it in a heartbeat”

Sam Smith is thought to release the official theme for new James Bond film Spectre with his song ‘Writing’s On The Wall’ expected to be unveiled soon.


He worked with Disclosure on the song, having previously denied his involvement in the project. Just last week the singer told BBC Radio 2’s Jo Whiley that he was “definitely not” working on the project. “That’s not me. That’s definitely not me,” he said. “I’ve still got loads to do, I’ve got an Australia tour, but I kind of finish in December which is great, it gives me a chance to be in London, be in my home and go out with my friends.” Speaking to NME, Gallagher laughed when told of Smith’s involvement with Spectre. Asked if he would record a future Bond theme, Gallagher was keen: “If I was asked,” he said. “Fucking too right. I’d record a Bond theme in a heartbeat. But they usually want people who are famous in America, don’t they? I’m only famous in Manchester. And bits of south London.” Radiohead were the surprise bookies’ favourites to record the theme following an anonymous £15,000 bet being placed on the likelihood of them performing the track.
