Listen: Full Version of Adele's James Bond 'Skyfall' Theme Song

Following a preview snippet which landed online earlier this week, we now get the full version of Adele's theme song to the upcoming James Bond movie Skyfall.

Tonally, the song certainly takes us back to the old school Bond movies and it'll be interesting to see what kind of graphics appear during the opening credits.

The studio version of the song will be available for purchase over on iTunes tonight.

Adele admitted in a statement that, "I was a little hesitant at first to be involved with the theme song for Skyfall. There's a lot of instant spotlight and pressue when it comes to a Bond song. But I fell in love with the script and (co-writer) Paul Epworth had some great ideas for the track and it ended up being a bit of a no-brainer to do it in the end."

You'll notice the strings section immediately in the song to which Adele said, "When we recorded the strings, it was one of the proudest moments of my life. I'll be back combing my hair when I'm 60 telling people I was a Bond girl back in the day, I'm sure!"

The song was recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London with the lush accompaniment of a 77 piece orchestra.

Skyfall arrives in theaters November 9. We've included the audio version below along with the YouTube video version which includes the lyrics appearing over a James Bond-esque background.
