One of the longest running rumors swirling in the music industry is that Amy Winehouse will do a theme song for the new Bond movie, "Quantum of Solace". In a report published on Saturday, April 5, The Sun claimed that the troubled singer has teamed up with Mark Ronson to record for the project.
"Amy and Mark are really excited," a source told the publication. "They see this as the biggest thing they have ever done. Mark collected her clothes and guitar to take to his place. She will join him soon and they will lock themselves away to write and record the song." The pair supposedly enter the booth this week in Ronson's studio in Henley.
The source added that they have not boxed what kind of sound will be produced for the movie. "They have no idea what they're going to do," the source continued. "In true Amy fashion, they're going to busk it. But I'm sure it will be brilliant. The new Bond film is supposed to be really dark so Amy will fit the bill perfectly." Pals of Winehouse have said that the singer writes best when she is depressed.
The Sun also reported that movie execs of "Quantum" will allow Winehouse to contribute in the movie if she stays clean until this month. "Quantum" itself is slated to be released on November 7 this year, starring once again Daniel Craig as James Bond.
