The latest Casino Royale rumour to cycle around the internet was that British electronic group Goldfrapp were the favourites for the new title song.
Speaking to 6 Music today, David Arnold has shut down this rumour. He says: ‘The Goldfrapp thing came about I believe as a Bond fan made up a fake fan art poster and put it on the net. He listed on the credits music by Goldfrapp as that was a band he would like to see doing it, and a French website decided that it was real so published a story.The internet is really quite amazing.’
However, Arnold also added that he is currently working on the title theme for the new 007 film with the chosen artist, who will be revealed to the public soon.
