Tom Jones tips Adele to sing James Bond Skyfall theme

Thunderball singer reignites speculation that Grammy-winning star will get the job


Last night, Grammy-winning singer Tom Jones opened the Bafta Film Awards with a rendition of his 1965 James Bond theme Thunderball.


Just hours earlier, another British star, Adele, took home six Grammys of her own. 

And now, Sir Tom has reignited speculation that Adele, 23, is to follow in his footsteps once again by performing the theme for the upcoming 007 movie, Skyfall.

“I was 22 when I did the Thunderball song and it changed my career and was a huge honour,” said Jones.

“Not that she needs it, but Adele would be the perfect choice for doing Skyfall,” he told The Sun.

Back in September, Adele sparked rumours that she had been signed up to write and sing the theme for the then unnamed 23rd Bond movie after she let slip details of an unspecified project while talking to Jonathan Ross on his ITV chat show. 

“I’m going back in the studio in November, fingers crossed,” she told Ross. “This [project] is actually a theme, what I’ve got to do. 

“Wow, that’s really giving something away,” she continued, blushing and covering her mouth as Ross began humming the main James Bond theme tune…
