I’d love to sing the next Bond theme, says Scots singer Emeli Sande as she picks up MBE

EMELI SANDE has said she would try and create something “epic” if approached to come up with the theme song for the next James Bond film.

The Read All About It singer said she had heard rumours she could be in line for the prestigious job but insisted she has not been directly asked to take on the task.

Asked if there was any truth to the suggestion, she said: “I keep hearing this but I haven’t heard anything directly.

“Of course I would love to – a chance to get quite dramatic with your music-making. I think I know how to approach it.”

In terms of the style she would choose she said: “I think it would just be something very soulful and quite dramatic and I guess when you are writing something for a movie you think more visually so you can kind of create a bigger picture in your mind so, yeah, try and make something epic.”

She’d be the fourth Scots woman to be sing a Bond theme after Lulu (The Man with the Golden Gun, 1974), Sheena Easton (For Your Eyes Only, 1981) and Shirley Manson with Garbage, (The World Is Not Enough, 1999)

Sande, who is currently recording a new album which she said is due for release this year, was speaking after receiving an MBE honour at Buckingham Palace for her services to music.
