This seems like a big mistake on their part.
Lana Del Rey may have one of the most emotionally charged voices in the industry, but that wasn’t enough to score her the theme song for the newest James Bond film Spectre.
As you’re probably aware, Sam Smith was the lucky Brit selected to follow in Adele‘s footsteps off Skyfall… except that his Writing’s on the Wall was not nearly as successful as his predecessor’s Oscar-winning ballad.
Unfortunately for the Daniel Craig vehicle, they may have missed a big opportunity for a hit because, as it turns out, Lana says she would have jumped at the chance to helm the action flick, saying:
“I would’ve done it if I was asked but I wasn’t asked. 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 [Honeymoon] that have a Bond feel like 24 and Swan Song.”
We would have killed for a Lana and Spectre team-up!
Hopefully James Bond wises up and offers her the chance to sing for the eventual 25th film in the franchise!
