With a new James Bond yet to be announced, another major aspect of the film series has gone under the radar.
That is, of course, the announcement regarding the next Bond theme and who will sing it.
There have been some truly iconic songs to accompany 007 movies over the years, like 'Goldfinger' by Shirley Bassey, 'Live and Let Die' by Paul McCartney, 'Nobody Does it Better' by Carly Simon, 'Goldeneye' by Tina Turner, 'You Know My Name' by Chris Cornell and 'Skyfall' by Adele.
Skyfall won the Academy Award for Best Original Song.
For the last movie, No Time to Die, the theme was sung by Billie Eilish.
According to Star Sports, there are four male solo artists in the frame for the next song, with Harry Styles leading the betting.
“With the next James Bond film being discussed more and more, it seems increasingly likely that Harry Styles, one of the biggest names in music today, could be the voice we hear in the opening titles of the next Bond film,” William Kadjanyi of Star Sports told The Daily Mail.
“And this is not forgetting Ed Sheeran, whose music has already appeared in the likes of The Hobbit, at 8/1 and the ever-popular Lewis Capaldi, following closely behind Styles in the market at 10/1.”
Harry Styles - 7/1
Ed Sheeran - 8/1
Lewis Capaldi - 10/1
Elton John - 12/1
