News had been traveling through the 007 grapevine that sections of the famous On Her Majesty’s Secret Service theme would be featured in the score for Casino Royale.
Thanks to an update on David Arnold’s official website, this rumour has been proved untrue. According to the update, Casino Royale is most similar to the On Her Majesty’s Secret Service score in that it doesn’t simply rely on the James Bond theme. Rather, new themes have been added. The On Her Majesty’s Secret Service is not included in the Casino Royale score.
Additionally, Arnold has finished recording the title song ‘You Know My Name’ with Chris Cornell in London. It has since been remixed in LA.
