We know that Daniel Craig will be back for his fifth James Bond film, the 25th in franchise's history, and that it will be released November 8th, 2019. What we don't know is who will be directing, other actors involved, the title, or the big question: who will be doing the opening theme song. In the past, it's been a thing of pride to do a Bond theme. The list of contributing musicians include Madonna, Duran Duran, Paul McCarthy, Tom Jones, Chris Cornell, Tina Turner, Adele, Shirley Bassey, and Alicia Keys with Jack White, the most recent being Sam Smith for Spectre. Now singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran hopes he will be asked — and he already has a song written.
While on Ireland's The Late Late Show, Sheeran confessed that he not only already has a theme song written, but it's been written for about three years now… just in case. He wouldn't say what the title of the song is for fear of someone stealing it, but he is certain that it's good. This isn't the only thing he's pre-written for in hopes of happening. He says he recently had a chance to work with Eminem and admitted to having already had a song prepared for if he ever got a chance to work with the rapper.
If you're the producers of the next Bond movie, why don't you go and listen to the song? I mean, you can probably get it cheap… it's already written, and it's not like he can sell it to another film.
