Grammy-winning singer Adele has another line she can add to her resume - James Bond theme singer! The British crooner has reportedly recorded the theme for the new James Bond film, "Skyfall," according to the Total Film Web site.

Rumors that the "Someone Like You" singer might be involved with the film's soundtrack swirled when she was spotted at London's Abbey Road Studios while the score was being recorded.

Though Adele's involvement with the soundtrack has now been confirmed, it remains unclear if she wrote the music and lyrics or is simply performing the vocals. The song is expected to be released after the movie reaches theaters this fall.

Adele joins a long list of pop stars who have sung theme songs for the 50-year-old spy franchise, including Tom Jones, Carly Simon, Shirley Bassey, Madonna, Sheryl Crow, Duran Duran and Paul McCartney.  The last Bond film, "Quantum of Solace," featured a song by Jack White and Alicia Keys, "Another Way to Die," which was poorly received by critics. But based on Adele's positive track record, poor reviews shouldn't be in her future! Her multi-million selling album "21" is the longest running female number one on the US Billboard Chart.

Daniel Craig resumes his role as James Bond in "Skyfall." In the film, Bond is presumed to be dead after an operation in Istanbul ends in disaster. The identities of every active undercover MI6 agent are leaked onto the internet, and M, played by Judi Dench, becomes the subject of a government review over her handling of the situation. When the service itself is attacked, Bond's sudden reappearance gives M the pretext she needs to seek out Raoul Silva, played by Javier Bardem, a dangerous villain claiming a personal connection to both of them. But as he follows a trail from London to the South China Sea, Bond soon finds his loyalty to M challenged over secrets from her past.

With the new Adele theme song and Bardem's role as villian, there's a lot to look forward to in the new "James Bond" film! "Skyfall" is set to be released in the UK and around Europe on October 26 and in the US on November 9.
