UMe celebrates the world's most famous (and least secret) secret agent with a November 20th release of The Best Of Bond…James Bond ...


Press Release

This collection is an updated version of the one you already have - a digital, 2CD and 3LP black vinyl compilation featuring celebrated theme songs from the longest-running film franchise. In addition, a limited-edition gold vinyl will be available exclusively via uDiscover Music and Sound of Vinyl. The new collection will include No Time To Die by Billie Eilish, the 25th film in the series*. Also now included will be Adele's Skyfall, the highest-grossing Bond film to date, and Sam Smith's Spectre theme, Writing's On the Wall. 

In addition to Billie Eilish, Adele and Sam Smith, included is the signature instrumental James Bond Theme by The John Barry Orchestra, which remains one of the most recognizable themes from film. The collection also includes Dame Shirley Bassey (Goldfinger, Diamonds Are Forever and Moonraker). With Goldfinger, Bassey achieved her first Top 10 hit, reaching No. 8 on The Billboard Hot 100 and No. 2 on the Adult Contemporary charts. 

Along with Louis Armstrong (We Have All The Time In The World), Nancy Sinatra (You Only Live Twice), Lulu (The Man With The Golden Gun), The Best Of Bond…James Bond also includes Paul McCartney & Wings (Live And Let Die). Written by Paul McCartney and Linda McCartney and produced by former Beatles producer George Martin, the title theme song hit No. 2 on the chart, and it was nominated for both a GRAMMY and an Academy Award. The single Live And Let Die became the first Bond theme song to win a GRAMMY® award (Best Pop Vocal Performance, 1973), and the song continues to be a highlight in McCartney's live performances.
