“Writing’s On the Wall,” co-written by Sam and Jimmy Napes, is the first Bond theme song to be recorded by a British male solo artist since 1965.
“This is one of the highlights of my career,” Sam said in a statement. “I am honored to finally announce that I will be singing the next Bond theme song. I am so excited to be a part of this iconic British legacy and join an incredible line up of some of my biggest musical inspirations. I hope you all enjoy the song as much as I enjoyed making it.”

Meanwhile, Sam just dropped a preview of his song for the upcoming Bond movie Spectre, titled “Writing’s on the Wall.” Listen below!
“I’m writing when I want to. So when bad things happen in my life, I’m going into the studio and writing about them,” Sam recently told NME about a new album. “I’m excited, but it’s not going to be anytime soon. I think people are going to get bored of me if I carry on. I’m just trying to make it the most honest work I’ve ever done.”
Sam Smith is all smiles while leaving BBC Radio in London, England on Wednesday afternoon (September 16).
The 23-year-old singer joined pals Disclosure at the studios where they pulled out an amazing cover of Drake‘s “Hotline Bling”.
“Drake and Kendrick [Lamar] are just absolutely killing it at the moment,” Disclosure‘s Guy Lawrence said of the track. “They’re like mine and Howard’s faves at the moment in that world, and it made sense to choose this song.”
Sam added on Instagram afterwards, “Just did live lounge with my boys @disclosure ?? hope you all enjoyed and hope you’re all ready for CARACAL. I can assure you, you’re not, it’s unreal x”
Sam is also pictured arriving at Heathrow airport earlier in the week.

Sam recently opened up changing his eating habits to lose weight.
“I love food. I went to bed last night dreaming of tuna melts,” Sam said during The Today Show. “My relationship with food has just completely changed. During the process of this album ['In the Lonely Hour'], I just was getting bigger and bigger and bigger. When someone calls you ‘gay,’ there’s not much you can do about that because I am. Whereas, if someone calls you fat, there is something you can do about that.”
