The new James Bond theme song has been released. The theme to the forthcoming Spectre, called "The Writing's On The Wall" and performed by British singer Sam Smith, can be heard below:

Earlier this month, Smith explained that the track, written with regular musical partner Jimmy Napes, had been recorded way back in January. "I got called into the office with Barbara Broccoli and Sam Mendes and they gave me the script," he said. "I read the script. They said, 'Have a go at the song.' It's the quickest I've ever written a song--it took 20 minutes and they loved it!"

The 23-year-old is the first British male solo artist to record a Bond song since Tom Jones sang the theme to Thunderball way back in 1965. To date, Smith has sold more than eight million albums worldwide.

Spectre arrives in cinemas on November 6, 2015.
