News has emerged (via ComingSoon.net among others) that Jack White and Alicia Keys have recorded the title track to Quantum of Solace.
James Bond producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli today announced the song, titled “Another Way To Die”, marks the first duet in James Bond soundtrack history.
The song was written and produced by White, who also performs the drums on the track.
“Another Way To Die” will appear on the official soundtrack to Quantum of Solace, which will be released on J Records on 28 October, 2008.
33-year-old White is best known as one half of the alternative rock band The White Stripes. Keys, 28, is an R&B/pop singer with 11 Grammy awards under her belt.
The pair will be following in the footsteps of Shirley Bassey, Tom Jones, a-ha, Garbage, and most recently, Chris Cornell.I have actually heard of Alicia Keys! anyway my thoughts were summed up perfectly by a poster on Commander Bond named doubler 83 on one of the multiple threads where people actually give a shit about the song...
At the end of the day, it's going to be 3 minutes or so out of around 120 minutes. If you don't like it, then go to the toilet.
Just announce the damn singer already.
