Noel Gallagher still open to possibility of recording future ‘Bond’ theme

Oasis man previously said he would pen a 007 song 'in a heartbeat'

Noel Gallagher has discussed the possibility that he will one day write a James Bond theme, stating in a new interview that he would if he was asked.

Speaking to NME in September last year, the former Oasis man said that he would record a Bond theme “in a heartbeat”, but added: “They usually want people who are famous in America, don’t they? I’m only famous in Manchester. And bits of south London.”

Asked about the prospect again, Gallagher has now said: “If I was asked to write a Bond song, yeah, sure. The thing is, I’ve never had to chase anything.”

Speaking to The Sunday Times in an interview published yesterday (January 10), Gallagher added: “With Oasis, starting that band seemed impossible, and all my ambitions have seemed impossible, so I’m not remotely ambitious for anything that is attainable. Now I’ve done a bit, I don’t really give a fuck any more about achieving anything. I just want to write the best songs I can.”

The latest Bond theme, for 24th 007 film Spectre, was recorded by Sam Smith. It was recently revealed that the filmmakers had originally asked Radiohead to record the song, which they eventually released for free.

Elsewhere in his Times interview, Gallagher hit out as Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership of the Labour Party, quipping “I don’t like communism”.
