‘Kings of Leon’ to record new James Bond theme songJune 24th, 2011 - 8:08 pm ICT by Aishwarya Bhatt
Hollywood, June 24 (THAINDIAN NEWS) The band Kings of Leon has announced that they are now ready to provide a theme song for the spy franchise “James Bond.” The band was approached in the past to provide a theme song but they declined to do so. They have now indicated that they will do it if they are approached.
During a Twitter chat with Vue cinemas, frontman Caleb Followill said that, “I’ve always wanted to work with strings so that would be a good excuse to do it.”
Several stars have in the past performed theme songs for the franchise. Caleb told reporters that they will now welcome any approach from the franchise to provide a theme song for the song. Yahoo! reported that British actor Daniel Craig was tasked to speak to the band to provide a theme song for some movies of the franchise. Craig approached the band three times and in each of the occasion they turned down the offer.
In the past, Alicia Keys and Jack White have provided songs for the franchise. The duo performed the song Another Way to Die when they were asked to provide a theme song for the movie Quantum of Solace. The movie is the latest of the James Bond franchise.
