British singing star Adele is said writing the new James Bond song. She is reportedly working on the theme tune for the next James Bond movie, working title Bond 23.

British newspaper The Sun quotes a source as saying: "Adele is the obvious choice to record the next Bond theme. The last few songs for the spy movies have hardly set the charts alight. After her success this year filmmakers know the song is almost guaranteed to be a huge hit."

Adele will work with producer Paul Epworth who has recently collaborated with Cee Lo Green and Florence and the Machine.

She’ll be joining an impressive list of artists to have sung a Bond movie theme including Wings, Alicia Keys, Madonna, Tina Turner and Carly Simon.

Daniel Craig will be back as British super spy James Bond next year.
