Adele's Bond theme tops iTunes chart

  • Skyfall, the new Bond theme sung by British songstress Adele, has topped the iTunes chart after being released online in the early hours of Friday morning.

    It went to number one within 10 hours of being released.

    The full single was released just after midnight on Friday, after a 90 second clip was leaked online earlier in the week.

    Adele ended months of speculation over her involvement with the project after posting a picture of the song credits on her official Twitter page on Tuesday.

    It lists the composers as A(dele) Adkins and P(aul) Epworth, the producer and co-writer of her hit single Rolling In The Deep.

    Skyfall, the 23rd film in the Bond franchise, is due to be released on October 26.
