The Casino Royale title song was co-written by composer David Arnold and Cornell with the music video filmed in Los Angeles on 10-11 October.
Cornell has said about joining the ranks of James Bond theme performers: ‘Paul McCartney’s in there, Tom Jones is in there, which I’m—people might not know this, but I’m a huge Tom Jones fan. I think he’s amazing singer. I had never heard his version of ‘Thunderball’ until recently. I’m sure I did when I was a kid, but it was 1965 so I was one. But it’s great, you know, it’s great being part of something like that, historically.’
