"The pressure to deliver a Bond song that stands against all the rest feels quite intense," said Sam Smith, whose new James Bond theme song, Writing's On The Wall, was released September 25.

It's the quickest I've ever written a song"
"This is one of the highlights of my career. I am honoured to finally announce that I will be singing the next Bond theme song. I am so excited to be a part of this iconic British legacy and join an incredible line up of some of my biggest musical inspirations," he wrote
