    Sam Smith, looking like a young George Michael in a mod black suit, is featured in his new video for the song "Writing’s on the Wall," the official theme song from the upcoming James Bond thriller, Spectre. Like so many Bond theme songs before it—most recently, Adele’s devastatingly dramatic "Skyfall," and before it, Alicia Keys’s and Jack White’s "Another Way to Die"—it’s a dark and sobering track, set to equally brooding, action-packed clips from the movie.

    Smith, no surprise, is actually a good Bondsmen. His rich, pitch-perfect tone sidles up well to the song’s sweeping strings and minor key infused orchestration, adding the needed emotional pull all Bond viewers crave. (As, for instance, in a great scene at 1:28—spoiler alert—it appears another unlucky heroine meets her inevitable demise.)

    Give it a watch and see for yourself. Whether or not it’s your idea of a killer Bond theme, it’s surely just enough Daniel Craig to see you though to November 6, when Spectre is in wide release. Smith’s In The Lonely Hour Tour continues through December, with stops in Asia and Australia. Ticket info is available at SamSmithWorld.com.
