Muse drummer Dom Howard has declared that their new track ‘Supremacy’ should be used as the theme for the next James Bond film Skyfall.
After much speculation, it was confirmed earlier this month (September 17) that Adele would be providing the official song for the next 007 flick but, in an interview with the BBC, Howard suggested that their cut from forthcoming new album ‘The 2nd Law’ would make an equally appropriate Bond anthem.
Discussing the song, he said:
It’s got a little whisper to the Bond vibe – it all goes a bit crazy ‘Live And Let Die’ in the middle. My view is they should use it for the next James Bond film, but I don’t know what’s going on with that. I heard Adele was doing it.
Speaking about ‘The 2nd Law’, meanwhile, the drummer said: “We wanted to give every track its own character and touch on new ideas and break a little bit of new musical ground for the band as well,”
The 2nd Law’ is released on October 1 in the UK and October 2 in the US. It includes new singles ‘Madness’ and ‘Survival’ as well as dubstep-influenced track ‘The 2nd Law: Unsustainable’. The 13-track album is the follow-up to 2009’s ‘The Resistance’ and has been recorded in London.
The Devon trio will also tour the UK in October, playing five shows. The gigs begin at Glasgow’s SECC on October 24, before the band move onto London’s O2 Arena for two shows on October 26 and 27. They then play Birmingham LG Arena on October 30 before finishing up at Manchester Arena on November 1.
The band will also play the iTunes Festival this month, headlining London’s Roundhouse on September 30.
