Well! No one saw that coming did they?!
Fresh from Pitchfork:
“Following in the illustrious footsteps of Chris Cornell, Garbage, Sheryl Crow, a-ha, Tom Jones, and so on, chart-topper Alicia Keys and Jack White of White Stripes and Raconteurs fame will perform the theme song to upcoming James Bond flick Quantum of Solace, according to a Billboard.com report (as yet not confirmed by representatives of either artist).
Keys and White will duet on “Another Way to Die”, which White penned and will produce and play drums upon. The tune– the first duet in the history of James Bond movie theme songs, for what that’s worth, and the fourth to date to include the word “Die”– will feature on the film’s soundtrack, due October 28, and the film itself, due November 7.”
Quite an interesting duet, I’m already quite excited/curious as to what it’ll sound like. Much better news than all the Amy Winehouse/Leona Lewis/Duffy/Enter Generic Soul singer rumours that were flying about. Roll on October!
It’ll have to go some way to beat this though.
Or the strings in this.
And of course…
