Sam Smith Is Recording the James Bond 'Spectre' Theme Song After All
It looks like Sam Smith will be singing the theme song for the new James Bond film Spectre after all. Despite denying that he'll be supplying the soundtrack for months, today (Sept. 7), the "Lay Me Down" singer teased the new film on Instagram via a new accessory, once again triggering major rumors that he'll be doing the song.
Smith seems to have confirmed his involvement with Spectre by posting a simple photo on his Instagram and Twitter. In the picture, Smith shows off a new silver ring, branded with the octopus logo of Bond's Spectre. The black and white image was supplied without caption or context.

Of course, this image was taken as an obvious indicator that Smith will be supplying the yet-to-be titled theme song to Spectre.
This news comes in direct contrast to an interview Smith gave last week, where he denied his involvement with the film. When asked about the new Bond soundtrack, Smith said, "That's not me. That's definitely not me. I've still got loads to do, I've got an Australia tour, but I kind of finish in December which is great, it gives me a chance to be in London, be in my home and go out with my friends."
Smith's song has yet to receive a title or release date, but Spectre will be hitting theatres in the United States on Nov. 8.
Smith joins a long, prestigious line of musicians who have supplied theme songs to the Bond film franchise. Past tracks have been done by Adele, Chris Cornell, Jack White and Alicia Keys, Madonna and more.
