English classics collide as 24-year-old chanteuse Adele sings “Skyfall,” the new theme song for the upcoming James Bond film of the same name! The song has been talked about for months, and finally the full version has been released online – give it a listen:

Adele enlisted Paul Epworth to produce and co-write the song after reading through the script. The song was recorded at the famous Abbey Road Studios in London, and features the accompaniment of a 77-piece orchestra.

Here are the “Skyfall” lyrics:

This is the end
Hold your breath and count to ten
Feel the earth move and then
Hear my heart burst again

For this is the end
I’ve drowned and dreamt this moment
So overdue, I owe them
Swept away, I’m stolen

Let the sky fall, when it crumbles
We will stand tall
Face it all together
Let the sky fall, when it crumbles
We will stand tall
And face it all together
At sky fall
At sky fall

Skyfall is where we start
A thousand miles and poles apart
Where worlds collide and days are dark
You may have my number
You can take my name
But you’ll never have my heart

Let the sky fall, when it crumbles
We will stand tall
Face it all together
Let the sky fall, when it crumbles
We will stand tall
And face it all together
At sky fall

Where you go I go
What you see, I see
I know I’d never be me
Without the security
Of your loving arms
Keeping me from harm
Put your hand in my hand
And we’ll stand

Let the sky fall, when it crumbles
We will stand tall
Face it all together
Let the sky fall, when it crumbles
We will stand tall
And face it all together
At sky fall

Let the sky fall
We will stand tall
At sky fall

Skyfall single by Adele James Bond theme

Adele confesses, “I was a little hesitant at first to be involved with the theme song for Skyfall. There’s a lot of instant spotlight and pressure when it comes to a Bond song. But I fell in love with the script and Paul had some great ideas for the track and it ended up being a bit of a no-brainer to do it in the end. It was also a lot of fun writing to a brief, something I’ve never done which made it exciting. When we recorded the strings, it was one of the proudest moments of my life. I’ll be back combing my hair when I’m 60 telling people I was a Bond girl back in the day, I’m sure!”

Daniel Craig reprises his role as Bond in the film with a supporting cast that includes Javier Bardem, Bérénice Marlohe, Naomie Harris, Ralph Fiennes, Judie Dench, Ben Whishaw, Ola Rapace, Helen McCrory, Tonia Sotiropoulou, and Albert Finney. Skyfall is set to premiere October 26th in the United Kingdom and November 9th in the United States.

So what did you think of the song? I thought it was GREAT!
