  8. Skyfall Soundtrack coming October 22nd?

    ‘Skyfall’ marks Thomas Newman’s first shot at scoring a Bond film, and the first Bond film in 15 years to mark the absence of composer David Arnold, who worked on 5 consecutive James Bond movies, from 1997’s ‘Tomorrow Never Dies’, to 2008’s ‘Quantum of Solace’.

    Amazon have listed the ‘Skyfall’ soundtrack, with a release date of October 22nd. Nothing has been officially confirmed yet, but if the previous few Bond films are anything to go by, then October 22nd seems like an ideal release date. No track listing’s have been added, but you can rely on to inform you as soon as they become available.

    It is still unknown as to whether the yet to be announced title track will be available on the soundtrack, but if the releases for ‘Casino Royale’ and ‘Quantum of Solace’ is anything to go by, I wouldn’t hold your breath.

    A close friend of Sam Mendes,  Newman’s most famous works include, The Shawshank Redemption, American Beauty and The Green Mile, so expectations are at an all time high.


    Special thanks to ‘Shrublands’ for the alert.

  10. Interview: Irka Bochenko talks about her tribute to James Bond

    Today an exclusive interview with singer Irka Bochenko by the Club James Bond France sheds further light on the background of her project. By kind permission of Luc Le Clec, the Club’s president, is able to bring you the translation.





    Moonraker’s Blonde Beauty Irka sings for Bond… with Bond!


    Interview by Serge Igor
    Translated by Eric Saussine


    Irka Bochenko wrote the song ‘Happy Birthday Mr. Bond’ to celebrate 007’s 50th anniversary on the silver screen. Sir Roger Moore couldn’t refuse Irka’s gracious invitation. The song is in French and in English. She talked about this duet, her career as a Bond Girl and about Roger Moore himself. “The idea of my being a Bond Girl was a memory. Then I was invited for three exceptional days in London and I was immediately reminded that I was Bond Girl. It was a very exciting time. That’s when I learned that 2012 would be Bond’s 50th anniversary. A few weeks later when I was about to come back on stage in the south of France I got out of my dressing room and… my character Blonde Beauty was on TV… there was a Moonraker trailer on television. That was the spark. I wrote the song.”


    “I immediately thought about inviting Roger Moore. He had that elegance, that specific humour. I was keen on meeting him again after all these years. So I contacted the president of Club James Bond France who gave me the address of Sir Roger Moore’s Office. Two hours later I had Sir Roger’s reply: “Of course!”


    “The recording took place at his hotel in May 2012. His first words were: “What a pleasure to see you again!” Always generous, always a gentleman! We talked about our lives, about our common friends like Helmut Newton. We also talked about Lewis Gilbert and Mr. Broccoli.”
