    Exclamation Jack White & Alicia Keys Team for Bond Theme!!

    So say's Billboard....

    http://www.billboard.com/bbcom/news/..._id=1003832786

    Alicia Keys and the White Stripes' Jack White will record the theme song to "Quantum of Solace," the 22nd James Bond film, which hits U.S. theaters Nov. 7.

    The song, "Another Way To Die," will be the first duet in Bond soundtrack history. White wrote and produced the song, and also will play drums. The soundtrack to the movie will be released Oct. 28.



    I think most of the board here knows my undying love for all things JW, and Alicia Keys has a nice set of pipes. And he fucking wrote the song!! Also, I've never heard him play drums before even though that was his first instrument.

    ok ok, discuss!

    edit: I also remember reading an interview with Keys back when she was promoting her last album, she said how her and JW really wanted to work together but just couldn't get it to happen (Thanks Entertainment Weekly!). I'm so thrilled they found the time. JW just loves to work his ass off

    mark ronson/ amy winehouse would have been cool and more retro-bond.

    but JW- i'm sold. and Alicia Keys has a stunning voice.

    I think it's a crazy enough pairing that it could work. Sure as hell will be better than Cornell's shitfest of a song for Casino Royale. I honestly cannot even remmeber that fucking song, I just thought it was a steaming turd

    I was kinda looking forward to Amy Winehouse doing this. But JW and Alicia Keys should be very good.

    I'm interested in the Jack White portion of the story, but feel that Alicia Keys has a truly weak, thin sounding voice and is the beneficiary of much studio wizardry and slick packaging/promotion

    This is a weird combination.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    who cares?
    they brought daniel craig back!

    seriously... he makes pierce brosnan look like the aborted love child of sean connery and keanu reeves.

    layer cake was the shit. seriously, THE shit.


    I'm kidding about the who cares thing though. it'll be interesting to see what happens with this song.
    we've had some pretty awful bond tunes...

    08.22.08 // MORE ON THE JAMES BOND THEME



    From rollingstone.com:

    "Jack White has finally given some insight into his James Bond theme collaboration with Alicia Keys . Discussing “Another Way to Die,” the theme for the upcoming Quantum of Solace , White said “After a couple of years of wanting to collaborate with Alicia Keys , it took James Bond himself to finally make it happen. Alicia put some electric energy into her breath that cemented itself into the magnetic tape. Very inspiring to watch.” White went on to say that the famed Memphis Horns, as well as some of “Nashville's finest,” were also involved in the recording. “We wanted to push soul into those tapes, and join the family of Barry, Bassey, Connery and Craig,” White said, referring to Bond actors and composers of the past."
