While the David Arnold Casino Royale score has been out for about a week now, many James Bond fans have been waiting for the single release or Chris Cornell’s ‘You Know My Name,’ which is not included on the soundtrack.
Released under the Polydor label, the ‘You Know My Name’ CD single will be released on 11 December in the UK and on the 14th in the US as a Universal/Polydor import.
According to the amazon.co.uk listing, the only track is ‘1 – You Know My Name.’ However, track listings on amazon constantly change in the weeks/days leading up the release and details may be released about possible mixes of the song to also be included.
Cornell previously said that from the beginning, producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli wanted something different from previous Bond songs. ‘They were pretty clear about what they didn’t want–which was a song that had already been sitting around that I would just cleverly adapt to the new film, which happens quite a lot apparently,’ he says. ‘They also didn’t want to echo any recent Bond theme songs.’
‘[The single is] also going to be on my next album, which is out in February. It was a decision of mine not to have it on the film soundtrack. I wanted it to be mine.’
