Adele joins a rich tradition of musicians who have sung theme songs to James Bond films when her next song, 'SkyFall' is released on Thursday.

The track will be the lead song from the soundtrack to the next installment of the James Bond film, SkyFall.  The song will be available for download beginning on October 5.

That date is also International James Bond Day in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the release of the first James Bond Movie 'Dr. No.'

A snippet of the song has been released early.

UPDATE: Audio that was posted to SoundCloud has now been pulled.
