Talking Confirmed - Madonna to perform Bond song

Madonna To Compose and Perform Main Title Song for "Die Another Day"

Madonna will be composing and performing the main title song for Die Another Day, the newest James Bond adventure, it was announced today by producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli and Anita Camarata, EVP of MGM Music. Die Another Day stars Pierce Brosnan and Halle Berry and will be released on November 22, 2002, in conjunction with the 40th anniversary of the Bond films.

Wilson and Broccoli said, “We are thrilled that Madonna, who is recognized as the world's most exciting songwriter and performer, has agreed to compose and sing the song for the first James Bond movie of the new millennium."

“Madonna is a brilliant artist who continues to have enormous appeal,” says Camarata. “She has an excellent feel for writing and performing music in films and we are proud she will contribute her talents to Die Another Day.”

Over the years, the James Bond films have spawned an incredible array of hit recordings, including “Goldfinger” and “Diamonds Are Forever” sung by Shirley Bassey, “We Have All the Time in the World” sung by Louis Armstrong, “Live and Let Die” performed by Paul McCartney and Wings, “Nobody Does It Better” sung by Carly Simon, “For Your Eyes Only” sung by Sheena Easton, “A View to a Kill” by Duran Duran, “Goldeneye” sung by Tina Turner, and “The World is Not Enough” by Garbage.

Throughout her extraordinary career, Madonna has recorded and written several hit songs for the big screen, including “Beautiful Stranger” from Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, which won a Grammy Award and a Golden Globe nomination. She also recorded the Oscar®-nominated “You Must Love Me” from the soundtrack to Evita, and wrote and recorded “I’ll Remember” from With Honors, “This Used To Be My Playground” from A League of Their Own, “Who’s That Girl?” from the film of the same title, “Live to Tell” from At Close Range, “Into the Groove” from Desperately Seeking Susan, and “Crazy for You” from Vision Quest.

Die Another Day is the 20th film in the James Bond series, and is being directed by Lee Tamahori and produced by Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli. With a script by Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, the cast also includes Toby Stephens, Rosamund Pike, Rick Yune, John Cleese and Judi Dench.

As a HUGE Madonna fan I'll be buying the song.
