Singer could follow in footsteps of Madonna, Paul McCartney and Shirley Bassey
Amy Winehouse is in the running to sing and write the new James Bond theme – but only if she stays off drugs for two months.
Winehouse, who is still battling drug addiction in a north London clinic, must still be clean by April to be in with a chance of making the record.
A source told the The Sun: “That’s when the Bond people make a final decision on who sings the theme. If Amy is clean then, it’s hers.”
The insider added the new Bond film, ‘Quantum Of Solace’, would have a “dark and moody” feel so it would fit Winehouse’s music perfectly.
