The 'Someone Like You' singer star says she fell in love with the script for Daniel Craig's latest Bond outing.
Adele says recording the theme song to the new James Bond film Skyfall was a "no-brainer" and ended up being one of the 'proudest moments" of her life.
The 'Rolling In The Deep' singer announced on Twitter today (1st October) that she had recorded the upcoming film's theme, after months of speculation about her involvement.
"I was a little hesitant at first to be involved with the theme song for Skyfall," Adele said in a statement to announce the song. "There's a lot of instant spotlight and pressure when it comes to a Bond song.
"But I fell in love with the script and Paul had some great ideas for the track and it ended up being a bit of a no brainer to do it in the end.
"It was also a lot of fun writing to a brief, something I've never done, which made it exciting," she explained. "When we recorded the strings it was one of the proudest moments of my life.
"I'll be backcombing my hair when I'm 60 telling people I was a Bond girl back in the day I"m sure!"
Skyfall is set to be released in cinemas in the UK on 26th October, with a US release to follow on 9th November, and will mark the 50th anniversary of the franchise.

The 'Someone Like You' singer's Bond theme will be her first official recording since the release of her worldwide smash album '21' back at the start of 2011.
Adele's new song 'Skyfall' is available to pre-order on iTunes from today and will be unveiled on her official website this Friday (5th October) at 0:07hrs BST (London Time), before being released to download immediately after.
