It's Adele's James Bond Theme "Skyfall"

This song is pretty fantastic, and more than lives up to the promise of the 90-second snippet that leaked earlier this week. Adele's "Skyfall," the theme to the same-titled James Bond film (in theaters November 9), could quite literally become the first Bond theme to top the Billboard Hot 100 since Duran Duran's "A View To A Kill," which did so in 1986.

Adele co-wrote the song with Paul Epworth, her "Rolling In The Deep" producer, and it was recorded at London's Abbey Road Studios with a 77-piecce orchestra.

The last Bond theme to chart in the Top 10 in the States was Madonna's "Die Another Day," which reached #8 in 2002. That was a different James Bond and a whole lot of Auto Tune ago.

"Skyfall" hits iTunes tonight.
