A spokesperson tells that none of its staff had played the much-anticipated track.

Music retailer HMV has denied that they played Adele's theme tune for the forthcoming James Bond film Skyfall in one of their stores.

It follows claims from a Twitter user that they had heard the track at a HMV store in Guildford today (21st September).

The song for the forthcoming film has yet to be officially unveiled and James Bond bosses have still yet to confirm reports that Adele has actually sung the theme.

A spokesperson for HMV told they had contacted the store in question and staff were adamant that the theme tune had not been played on their multi-CD player, which provides all in-store entertainment.

Gennaro Castaldo said: "The only thing we can think of that could feasibly have happened, though none of our staff heard it played - so it sounds very unlikely - is that a member of the public came in and, using their digital device, played a snippet of the song on one of the store's speaker docks, which we stock and the public are free to use/test."

He added that this was "very unlikely scenario".

Adele is widely reported as the artist who has recorded the official theme tune for Skyfall:

Earlier this week, Total Film magazine said Adele had been confirmed to sing the theme tune for the next James Bond film, Skyfall, but the production company behind the movie have still yet to confirm the report.

Despite that, bookmakers William Hill have already paid out to customers who had placed bets for the 'Someone Like You' star to sing the theme.

Skyfall will once again see Daniel Craig revise his role as James Bond, with Judi Dench also starring. The movie goes on general release on 26th October.
