Goldfrapp to Pen James Bond Theme?

SPIN Staff

Goldfrapp have been asked to create the theme song for the next installment in the James Bond series, Casino Royale. Alison Goldfrapp and partner in electronica, Will Gregory, are in final talks with musical director David Arnold to write the title track for the new 007 film, according to the Daily Mirror. If officially hired, Goldfrapp will join the illustrious list of artists who have been given the coveted task in previous years, like Paul McCartney, Shirley Bassey, and Madonna, who sang the title tracks to Live and Let Die, Goldfinger, and Die Another Day, respectively. Goldfrapp's U.S. publicist, however, was unaware of the 007 offer. The new Bond flick will be out in November and is set to star a brand new 007 -- Daniel Craig.
