Adele’s ‘Skyfall’ Theme: Hear A 90-Second Preview

Can’t wait until October 4 at the precise time of 7:07 p.m. ET to hear Adele‘s “Skyfall”? No worries! A 90-second snippet of her James Bond theme has surfaced. And from this tiny sample, it’s very Bond-y, both sultry and grand. It starts with minimal piano accompaniment and a clean guitar line, before that  77-piece orchestra kicks in on the chorus. As horns and strings swell and bleat, Adele wearily croons “Let this sky fall / When it crumbles / We will stand tall / And face it all together.” If anyone’s voice can stand out in a production that big, it’s Adele’s. Hear the preview after the jump.

    Sounds like its harking back to Bond themes of old which is a good thing and lets hope any future movies do the same, the themes for Quantum and Casino were truly dreadful, such a departure from what we’re used to and forgettable.
