After months of speculation that Adele would be the voice of the next James Bond theme, the rumors have finally been set to rest. The British pop sensation tweeted a picture of herself holding the "Skyfall" sheet music from the upcoming Daniel Craig film, which is set to be released on Nov. 9. The song, aptly named "Skyfall," is the mom-to-be's first recorded song since her album, "21." The "007" track, which was co-written with her longtime producer and collaborator Paul Epworth, will premiere on Adele's website on Oct. 4 around 4:07 p.m. The song is already available for pre-order at iTunes. Can't wait until Thursday? A 90-second clip of the theme tune has been leaked to the Internet (read more at vulture.com).
