    The two UK artists I'd like to see do a Bond theme are Sam Fender and Jorja Smith.

    If she continues getting bigger it's easy to imagine Raye doing one.

    😳 I didn't know of this artist, @mtm .... but wow... Am I imagining an Amy Winehouse vibe in the top video (mixed with enough of her own style)? She also has a classic-swing-jazz sound that I really dig!!

    I have no idea about her popularity, but that kind of talent has to be in the orbit of EoN's HQ(?)....

    I must admit I hadn't heard of her until recently but she's had five top ten hits here including a number 1, and has made 22 in the billboard 100 and has basically been on the way up in the last year. If she continues to get even bigger then she would seem a bit of a shoo-in for 007.

    I was just thinking about this thread, and this is an interesting sound, I dig it. I was going to come in here hot and argue that they should really push the envelope with the music artist for the next era, do a new sound for the Bond franchise. I might even consider a breakdown to a short rap, if it's done well enough, in the style of modern dance/drill/club mixes with half a dozen artists. It'd be incredibly commercial I think.

    I understand this will NOT be a popular suggestion but oh well, I have broad tastes and get bored easily. A more serious effort with this sort of approach:



    Getting a great vocal artist mixed with a David-Arnold, remix sound, would really satisfy me.

    I have nothing against the idea of a Bond theme with a bit more of an urban sound even as far as rap (we had reggae in a Bond song 50 years ago, after all!), but I must admit I quite like the way that Raye mixes a classical R&B soul vibe with a more contemporary urban feel, even some spoken sections bordering on rap at times. I can imagine her being the next Adele, certainly.

    While I'm hoping for a high octane song in the spirit of View to a Kill or You Know My Name, I would not be disappointed if she landed the gig; she is fantastic. I just don't want another moody ballad for the next film .

    I would still love Lana Del Rey to do one.

    Other names/bands I would also throw into the hat are London Grammar, Wolf Alice and Jorja Smith.

    I think Billy Eilish was an inspired choice at the perfect time but strongly agree that we need to move to a different sound going forward. To be fair though it is hard to argue that, from an impact/audience perspective, the Craig era nailed its music save for one song, I trust they know what they're doing in that regard. But they did get stuck in a formula by the last 3 of Craig's.

    Yes, I'm not a music person but I believe from Skyfall onwards they all used the same chord structure (is that right?). Certainly I remember trying to sing NTTD to myself when I'd only heard it a couple of times and accidentally veering into WOTW or even SF itself.
