Quantum of Solace comes out on November 14th, but I guess they just couldn’t wait for us to hear the theme tune, cause here it is. The song is called “Another Way To Die” and it’s performed by Alicia Keys and Jack White. Now I have no prior knowledge of the prior works of either of those two musicians, but speaking as a Bond enthusiast, there’s a kind of steamy allure to this tune. It’s a nice contrast to Chris Cornell’s outstanding “You Know My Name,” and it’s a relief that it doesn’t lower itself to the superficial depths of Madonna’s “Die Another Day.” I think the ultimate test is to see how it mixes with the opening titles.
Anyway, listen to the song and don’t hesitate to post your thoughts.
And as an extra treat, in case you missed it, here is the official teaser for Quantum of Solace:
