The days of stars like Tom Jones and Shirley Bassey performing the James Bond theme are over. Jack White teamed up with Alicia Keys to write “Another Way To Die” for Quantum of Solace in 2008, and now it seems the makers of the franchise are eyeing up Lady Gaga for their next effort.
“Her sound and sense of drama make her the top choice,” said a source who is apparently connected to the movie producers and is happy to blab to British tabloid The Sun. “Gaga has the look as well as the voice to tackle a thundering ballad. She’s a great songwriter too. This is perfect on every level.”
Other stars who may be in the reckoning for the soundtrack include Amy Winehouse and Michael Buble, although the film doesn’t have a cast or title yet, so all this talk is somewhat premature. But Gaga is sure to relish the chance to tackle a lavish Bond theme, assuming she’s not totally burnt out by the time it comes around.
