Adeles Skyfall single gets an official release date

Since it was confirmed that Adele would be singing the theme song for James Bond’s latest movie outing Skyfall , we’ve been desperate to hear a snippet of it.

We won’t have to wait much longer as the official release date of the single has been announced on Adele’s Facebook page , shortly after she tweeted an image of herself in the recording studio .

In a neat move, the single will be available in the UK from 0.07hrs BST (see what they did there?) on Friday 5 October. At least we know what we’ll be listening to at 0.08.

The cover art for the single (above) basically blends Adele’s face into the first Skyfall poster , and would seem to confirm that the song is also called Skyfall .

Skyfall , the 23rd official film in the James Bond series opens in the UK on 26 October 2012.
