As post-production continues on the 22nd James Bond film, Quantum of Solace, rumours and speculation concerning the title song only continue to heat up.
In the past couple of days, two new acts have been added to the list: Duran Duran and Annie Lennox.
Duran Duran, already a well-known name to 007 fans for their number-one title song for 1985’s A View to a Kill, are reportedly considering a collaboration along with producer Mark Ronson.
Keyboard player Nick Rhodes said: ‘We’d love to collaborate with Mark on a single for the next Bond film.’
‘With him [Ronson] we may even surpass “A View To A Kill”‘, Rhodes added.
Ronson has previously been attached to fellow Quantum of Solace title song contender Amy Winehouse. The two had worked on a song for the film, but it was never completed.
The other new contender is solo artist and lead singer of British duo Eurythmics, Annie Lennox. The Sun reports that the singer is the latest to make a bid for the title song.
Other recent artists rumoured for the Bond track include Duffy, Jack White, Leona Lewis and Beyonce. As always, keep in mind that these are unconfirmed rumours at this stage. An official announcement is yet to be released.
