"I'm so relieved to actually talk about this. This has been a top secret mission of my own. I got called into the office with (producer) Barbara Broccoli and (director) Sam Mendes and they gave me the script, I read the script. They said, 'Have a go at the song'. It's the quickest I've ever written a song"

Singer Sam Smith, 23, said that writing the theme song for new James Bond film SPECTRE was a "top secret mission of my own", and that he eventually penned it in 20 minutes, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
He was thrilled to be a part of Writing's On The Wall, the official song for SPECTRE, the 24th installment in the 007 franchise.
