The gays are winning: British chanteuse Sam Smith will sing “Writing’s On The Wall,” the theme song for “SPECTRE”.

“SPECTRE” is the 24th installment of the James Bond adventure film franchise.

Smith becomes the first British male solo artist to record a Bond theme song since 1965. He is also the first openly gay male artist to ever perform a Bond theme song.

Smith, a four-time GRAMMY® winner, co-wrote “Writing’s On The Wall” with fellow GRAMMY® Award winner Jimmy Napes.


A cryptic message from the past sends James Bond (Daniel Craig) on a rogue mission to Mexico City and eventually Rome, where he meets Lucia Sciarra (Monica Bellucci), the beautiful and forbidden widow of an infamous criminal. Bond infiltrates a secret meeting and uncovers the existence of the sinister organisation known as SPECTRE. Meanwhile back in London, Max Denbigh (Andrew Scott), the new head of the Centre for National Security, questions Bond’s actions and challenges the relevance of MI6, led by M (Ralph Fiennes). Bond covertly enlists Moneypenny (Naomie Harris) and Q (Ben Whishaw) to help him seek out Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux), the daughter of his old nemesis Mr White (Jesper Christensen), who may hold the clue to untangling the web of SPECTRE. As the daughter of an assassin, she understands Bond in a way most others cannot.

As Bond ventures towards the heart of SPECTRE, he learns of a chilling connection between himself and the enemy he seeks, played by Christoph Waltz. Sam Mendes returns to direct SPECTRE, with Daniel Craig reprising his role as 007 for the fourth time. SPECTRE is produced by Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli.

SPECTRE is set for release in the US on November 6, 2015.
