Brit band set for 007 theme?

First it’s the hype over who is slipping on the Walther, then the buzz about which lady catches Bond’s eye as she slinks across the casino floor – now we’re all set for a couple of months of back-and-forth about the Bond theme .

The whispers on the web last week suggested that Tina Turner was kicking off the slippers and heading out of retirement for a one-off warbling session for 007. At the same time, we hear pop princesses Girls Aloud are gearing up to record a spy theme for a movie… surely not?

However, for those of you who caught Brit synth-sensation Goldfrapp in London this past weekend, you may have noted that leggy lead songstress Alison Goldfrapp announced that they were involved in writing the Casino Royale theme.

The electro-popsters certainly fit in with Bond composer David Arnold’s taste but we’re not so sure it’s nailed just yet.

Keep your sights trained at for any updates…
