Sam Smith was not the only artist that was asked to submit a theme song for the James Bond movie Spectre
. Radiohead were also asked to come up with a track, but ultimately, the producers opted for Smith's "Writing's On The Wall
" as the signature tune. This moody orchestral ballad is Radiohead's effort, which they made available as a free download on Soundcloud as a Christmas present for their fans.
Singer Thom Yorke wrote on Twitter: "Last year we were asked to write a theme tune for the Bond movie Spectre
. Yes we were. It didn't work out, but became something of our own, which we love very much. As the year closes we thought you might like to hear it. Merry Christmas. May the force be with you."
