Last Monday, Sam Smith released a 15-second snippet of his new James Bond theme song, "Writing's on the Wall," on Instagram, along with the message, "Four days!!!!" True to his word, the song's just been released.
"Writing's on the Wall" -- the theme to the upcoming James Bond film SPECTRE, doesn't quite have the sweeping chorus that Adele's "Skyfall" does, but there's no mistaking who sings the more plaintive song, which sounds more like a romantic ballad, though it does boast the lush orchestral strings that are common to traditional 007 movie themes. It's also the first James Bond theme song…

He continues, “People our age, we all feel like s*** about ourselves. We wake up and we look at our phones and there…
When Sam Smith was announced as the new James Bond theme song singer, he felt like the perfect choice. But according to the U.K.’s Daily Star, he wasn’t the first choice. Apparently, producers wanted Adele to reprise her songwriting duties following the massive success of “Skyfall.”
She was reportedly offered more than $7 million for the gig, but turned it down. It seems she thought it would be impossible for her to top “Skyfall,” which won an Oscar in 2012.
“Adele was James Bond himself’s first choice,” a source says. “Daniel Craig was really keen and [director] Sam Mendes was…
