Lana Del Rey: ‘I Would Have Loved To Have Recorded ‘Spectre’ Bond Theme’
Lana Del Rey would have jumped at the opportunity to record the theme for new Bond movie Spectre, but revealed she was never asked.
The moody “Summertime Sadness” singer’s name was mentioned among the early frontrunners to write and record the latest Bond move theme, but the job eventually went to Sam Smith, who came up with “Writing’s on the Wall.”
“I would’ve done it if I was asked but I wasn’t asked,” Lana told NME. “I love all of the Bond music that’s been put out over the years and I love soundtracks in general.”
“There are a couple of songs on this record (new album Honeymoon) that have a Bond feel, like ’24’ and ‘Swan Song.'”
