Bond girl Lady Gaga?

Lady Gaga has been approached by bosses to sing the theme song for the next James Bond film.
Great deals on musical instruments

Lady Gaga has been approached to record the theme to the next James Bond film.

The 'Telephone' singer has been asked to submit a track for the next instalment of the British spy movie franchise, starring Daniel Craig.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "The Bond bosses are all huge Gaga fans. Her sound and sense of drama make her the top choice.

"Gaga has the look as well as the voice to tackle a thundering ballad. She's a great songwriter too. This is perfect on every level."

If Gaga is chosen to record the title track she would be following in the footsteps of her idol Madonna, who recorded the theme for 2002 007 movie 'Die Another Day', as well as making a cameo in the film - something Gaga is sure to be keen on.

The song 'Die Another Day' went on to become one of the most successful themes in the series' history.

However, Gaga will not be the only artist in the running to lend their talents to the soundtrack for the film - which is yet to be given a title and in the meantime is being referred to as 'Bond 23'.

Bosses usually ask several music stars to submit tracks and then decide which one is best suited.

Amy Winehouse - who was originally in the running to record the theme to the last instalment 'Quantum of Solace' - and crooner Michael Buble are also in the frame.

The next Bond movie is due to be directed by Sam Mendes, and is expected to be released next year.
