Video: Sam Smith responds to James Bond theme rumours: 'It's news to me'

Sam Smith has confirmed that he will not be recording the next Bond theme.

The solo singer was linked to the next Bond film last month but has distanced himself from the possibility of following in Adele's footsteps and recording a song for 007.

Speaking exclusively to NME regarding the rumour, Smith said "No, I have no idea what that was about and I know as much as you do. You probably know more than me; I didn't even read the article." He continued: "I think it's something everyone would love to do, but yeah, it was all news to me. I won't say any more on it."

He then went on to praise Jack White and Alicia Keys' collaboration on 2008's 'Another Way To Die' for Quantum Of Solace. "My favourite Bond them was Jack White and Alicia Keys," he revealed. "I love that; I thought it was amazing. Her voice and his voice together, I thought, was really interesting."

The next James Bond film is due for release on October 23, 2015 in the UK. The last theme song was Adele's 'Skyfall' for the film of the same name in 2012. Other notable tracks have been recorded by the likes of Shirley Bassey, Tom Jones and Duran Duran.

The new Bond film currently has the working title of Bond 24 and will star Daniel Craig in his fourth outing as 007. Also returning are Skyfall director Sam Mendes and screenwriting team John Logan, Neal Purvis and Robert Wade. The other confirmed cast are Ralph Fiennes as M, Ben Whishaw as Q, Naomie Harris as Miss Moneypenny and Rory Kinnear as MI6 chief of staff Bill Tanner.
