1. Chris Cornell backs Adele for ‘Skyfall’ Theme

    By Matthew Harkin on 2012-06-12

    Chris Cornell, singer of’ ”You Know My Name”, has told MTV that he thinks Adele would be the perfect choice to helm the main title song for Skyfall. The Casino Royale singer praised the rising star at this year’s London Download Festival.

    “Adele would be the perfect choice – I can’t think of a better one,” said the star.  “She’s phenomenal and it’s nice, in a day and age where so many vocals are fixed by computers, that the biggest album of last year was somebody who sings for real. I would hate to see music become more mechanistic and less human, so her success has been great.”

    Adele has been rumoured for the Skyfall main theme as early as 2011, where Thunderball singer Tom Jones also praised the singing sensation, saying that performing the main title track for the 4th James Bond movie had a huge impact on his career.

    Whether Adele is going to perform the track for the 50th Anniversary Bond movie remains to be seen. We expect to hear official confirmation of the artist chosen near the end of the post-production process.
