It was teased on Monday via Instagram, but today it has been confirmed that Sam Smith, known for songs as Lay Me Down and Like I Can, will be performing the new James Bond Theme.

This will mark the first time since the 1965 film Thunderball that the James Bond theme song will be performed by a Birtish solo artist. The Song written by Smith and Jimmy Napes will be titled Writing’s on the Wall and will be debuting on September 25th.

In a note on the Instagram post for the announcement Smith wrote " This is one of the highlights of my career. I am honoured to finally announce that I will be singing the next Bond theme song. I am so excited to be a part of this iconic British legacy and join an incredible line up of some of my biggest musical inspirations.  I hope you all enjoy the song as much as I enjoyed making it."

This Bond film is slated to be Daniel Craig's last appearance as the iconic super spy. Being directed by Sam Mendes, Specter takes Bond on a quest to uncover the sinister organization known as Specter and find the truth behind the shadowy organization and how it has its connections in world governments.
