Watch: Sam Smith debuts video for Bond theme ‘Writing’s on the Wall’

By Will Stroude

Sam Smith looks every bit the dashing OO agent in the brand new video for his Bond theme Writing’s on the Wall.

The 23-year-old has teamed up with music video director and long-time collaborator Luke Monaghan for the brooding visual, which is interspersed with some revealing new clips of the eagerly-anticipated 24th Bond installment Spectre.

“I am so excited to be a part of this iconic British legacy and join an incredible line up of some of my biggest musical inspirations. I hope you all enjoy the song as much as I enjoyed making it,” Sam previously said of the new track, which made UK chary history last week after becoming the first Bond theme to hit number one in the UK.

Meanwhile, Spectre will see Daniel Craig reprise his role as the iconic secret agent for a fourth time, while Ben Whishaw, Ralph Fiennes and Naomie Harris will reprise their roles as Q, M, and Miss Moneypenny respectively.

Monica Belluci and Lea Seydoux have joined the cast as two new Bond girls, and Sherlock’s Andrew Scott has also been confirmed as part of the line-up. Oscar-winner director Sam Mendes, who helmed 2012’s Skyfall, has also returned to the director’s chair, for what he says will be his last Bond outing.

Spectre will be released worldwide on November 6.
