Forventningene har vært store, eller rettere sagt skyhøye, til Sam Smiths tittelmelodi til den nye Bond-filmen SPECTRE. Og i dag ble Writing’s On The Wall endelig lansert.

I et intervju med BBC1 beskriver Smith Writing’s On The Wall som en «klassisk kjærlighetssang». Han kunne også fortelle at det tok han knappe tjue minutter å skrive sangen. Smith er faktisk den første mannlige britiske soloartisten som synger en Bond-melodi siden Tom Jones’ Thunderball fra 1965.

Smith følger i fotsporene til artister som Madonna, Paul McCartney and Wings, Adele, Tina Turner og a-ha, som alle har fremført Bond-tittelmelodier.

Writing’s On The Wall har fått blandet mottakelse. Kritikken har blant annet gått ut på at tittelmelodien er generisk og lite minneverdig. Vi kommer tilbake med en anmeldelse av den nye låten, men vårt førsteinntrykket er at både strykerarrangement (tidvis veldig John Barry-aktig) og Smiths stemme er flott.

Teksten: 

I’ve been here before
But always hit the floor
I’ve spent a lifetime running
And I always get away
But with you I’m feeling something
That makes me want to stay

I’m prepared for this
I never shoot to miss
But I feel like a storm is coming
If I’m gonna make it through the day
Then there’s no use in running
This is something I gotta face

If I risk it all
Could you break my fall?

How do I live? How do I breathe?
When you’re not here I’m suffocating
I want to feel love, run through my blood
Tell me is this where I give it all up?
For you I have to risk it all
Cause the writing’s on the wall

A million shards of glass
That haunt me from my past
As the stars begin to gather
And the light begins to fade
When all hope begins to shatter
Know that I won’t be afraid

If I risk it all
Could you break my fall?

How do I live? How do I breathe?
When you’re not here I’m suffocating
I want to feel love, run through my blood
Tell me is this where I give it all up?
For you I have to risk it all
Cause the writing’s on the wall

The writing’s on the wall

How do I live? How do I breathe?
When you’re not here I’m suffocating
I want to feel love, run through my blood
Tell me is this where I give it all up?
How do I live? How do I breathe?
When you’re not here I’m suffocating
I want to feel love, run through my blood
Tell me is this where I give it all up?
For you I have to risk it all
Cause the writing’s on the wall
