Ed Sheeran might have received only two Grammy awards, both for pop categories, but the British singer continues to ride high with two of his singles, one with Beyoncé and another with Eminem, making the competition tough for the top spot of this year. Now adding to all this excitement, Sheeran has revealed that he already has a James Bond song ready in case the makers need one.
According to a report published by the Independent, Sheeran insists that the song is damn good and refused to reveal the name fearing plagiarism. However, he has not been approached by the makers of the Bond franchise with any such request yet. The singer-songwriter recently appeared on ‘The Late Late Show with James Corden’, where he discussed the possibility of contributing a track to a future James Bond movie. “With Bond, I’ve had a theme tune written for about three years, just in case,” he said.
In the same interview, Sheeran also added that he had used the same approach for his song with Eminem. "When we did a song together, I had the song planned. So with Bond, if ever I'm called I'll be like 'here you go'," said Sheeran.
The sixth on-screen James Bond, Daniel Craig had recently confirmed that he will once again essay the fictional character of the MI6 agent in the next film. It seems that Ed Sheeran is all set to compose the Bond track if he gets a call. The present unofficial tradition of any popular musician to helm the soundtrack to the iconic franchise still continues, so we won’t be surprised if Sheeran bags this coveted opportunity. And if that happens, it might even put the British singer up for an Oscar. Read More
