Sam Smith recently announced that he had, in fact, recorded the theme song for the upcoming new James Bond movie Spectre; and today, you can hear the anthem in question, which he wrote together with his "Stay With Me" collaborator Jimmy Napes. "Writing's On The Wall" is classic Bond material, all lush strings, choruses that surge in like tsunamis, and lyrics with death-defying odds. It also happens to be the first Bond theme written and recorded by a British male solo artist since 1965.
