Another Way to Die

Song: Another Way to Die
Artist: Jack White & Alicia Keys
Album: Another Way to Die

Generally speaking, if you are a fan of the James Bond franchise, you have a certain affinity for the themes that have been created for the films. I fall into this group loving the oldies of the series like Shirley Bassey’s “Goldfinger,” “For Your Eyes Only” by Sheena Easton, and even Madonna’s “Die Another Day.” As much as I loved the latest “re-boot” of the series, “Casino Royal” starring the perfect Daniel Craig, the theme song by grunge icon Chris Cornell was boring. I couldn’t be happier to hear that none other than Jack White was doing the theme to the latest film coming out this November with Alicia Keys.

Sort of a strange combo for sure… but after a couple listens I think this really works. It certainly sounds like a Bond theme, both the vibe as well as the title. I think their voices sound great together and really think White was able to take his style and mold it to the Bond sound.
