Back and forth. Back and forth.
Amy Winehouse was first rumoured to be performing the next James Bond title theme in late 2006 (a rumour that has stuck like glue to the Quantum of Solace production ever since).
Now, producer Mark Ronson has shed some light on the matter in an interview with BBC 6 Music, confirming that Winehouse is indeed working with himself on a 007 title theme–but that there are currently no guarentees the track will be used as they haven’t officially been signed to the job.
‘Hopefully it will get used. We’re working on it and we’ll see happens,’ said Ronson, who is also working with Winehouse on her next album.
Mentioning that Winehouse was first approached about the possibility of a Bond theme, Ronson said: ‘They asked Amy, and I think Amy said that if she did it, she’d want to do it with me. So hopefully something will come of it.’
‘The demo sounds like a James Bond theme, hopefully. But I don’t know if it’ll get used.’
He added: “I’m sure there are loads more really famous people that probably we’re competing with and we don’t know about. I’m not sure.’
‘But hopefully I’ll still be alive for at least 12 more Bond themes. If we don’t get this one maybe we’ll get another one.’
As fans will recall, producer Michael G. Wilson kept the Winehouse rumour mill going in a recent Total Film magazine issue when he said that she ‘could wonderful job. We’ll have to wait and see if she can do it.’
