Daniel Craig wants singer and songwriter Ed Sheeran to compose the theme song of the upcoming James Bond movie
Bond 25 is the 25th installment of the James Bond movie series which is expected to be released next year. The film is to be produced by the Eon Production featuring 51-year-old actor Daniel Craig, who would be performing for the fifth time as the fictional MI6 agent James Bond.
As we know that this movie series has always been linked with pop music, and for over 57 years with 24 official bond movies there have been different songs composed by some of the biggest star of contemporary music. And according to some reports it’s going to Ed Sheeran this time.
28-year-old Ed Sheeran has become the first choice as the songwriter and composer of the theme track for the Bond 25. Although there were talks of Adele doing it again after her song “Skyfall” the title track of the Bond movie with the same name was such a major hit.
However, Sheeran has mentioned that he had a Bond theme trackback in 2017, but he also refused to reveal much about it. “I’m not going to say because someone might steal it,” Ed said, “but it’s good,” he added.
It is also being said that Daniel Craig himself wants the song to be composed by Ed Sheeran as his young daughter Ella is a big fan of Sheeran and his songs; also it was she who introduced Craig with Sheeran’s songs.
Although nothing has been confirmed we must know that Craig is not just the lead actor in the movie but also one of the producers, so he has huge sway over making this decision which might be in favor of Ed composing the track.
Bond 25 does not have an official title yet, but it would be releasing on April 8, 2020, with Craig’s final outing as 007.
