The James Bond Theme Skyfall has landed

Adele unveiled the first listen of Skyfall, the new Bond theme tune, which will provide the soundtrack to the movie of the same name. 

The track, despite only being unveiled today, has already rocketed to the top of the UK iTunes charts.

Adele's voice is a perfect fit for the song and is accompanied by backing vocals and the full orchestra customary to Bond theme tunes.

Thankfully Adele's vocals shine bright and are never downed out out by the strings, french horns or tubas which blast through the song.

The single has all the greatness of Shirley Bassey's Goldfinger, mixed with a contemporary feel that Adele brings to every tune she sings. 

So what do you think of the epic tune? Watch the lyric video and let us know what you think in the comments below.
