denied rumours that he's recording the next James Bond
theme, now it's reported that Lana Del Rey is supposedly penning the song for the next film.
According to a source quoted by the Sun (Gigwise
reports), "Producers know it has to be a great song with a killer vocal to rival the phenomenal success of Adele's 'Skyfall.' Sam seems like the favourite but Lana could definitely give him a run for his money."
Sam Smith recently told NME
, "I think it's something everyone would love to do, but yeah, it was all news to me. I won't say any more on it."

Del Rey has some experience in film soundtracks, having contributed "Young and Beautiful
" to "The Great Gatsby
" soundtrack, and covered "Once Upon a Dream
" for "Maleficent
