Adele has proven to be The Girl with the Golden Touch after her new Bond theme raced to the top of the iTunes charts within ten hours of being released.

'Skyfall' shares its name with the latest James Bond film (set for release on October 26th) and was penned by long-time Adele collaborator Paul Epworth.

The new single was released at 0:07 BST on Friday (October 5th), which was celebrated as Global James Bond Day and included a number of special Bond screenings, auctions and other events to mark the 50th anniversary of the release of the first bond film, Dr No, in 1962.

According to Epworth, the "dark and moody" theme - which many have compared to Shirley Bassey's iconic 1964 hit Goldfinger - was intended to echo the narrative of the new movie.

"The [Bond theme] songs seem to fall into groups, in terms of subject matter. Some of them have a romanticism to them, and some of them are very much about the narrative of the film," he told BBC 6 Music.

"I think you will need to see the film and see where the song happens in the context of the film.... and it will all make sense."

The song itself was recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London, with an orchestra utilising 77 musical instruments to capture the essence of Bond.
