The Modfather, Paul Weller, has just confirmed that he has teamed up with Noel Gallagher to write a potential Bond theme tune, and we couldn’t have dreamed up a better match if we tried.
This week, Weller releases his 13th studio album entitled, ‘A Kind of Revolution’ – and it seems the 58-year-old isn’t close to stopping any time soon. He’s now got his sights firmly set on the next 007 movie, and has reported that he’s already dipped his pen into the ink with Oasis guitarist and Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds lead, Noel Gallagher.
He’s since told the BBC,
I want to write a James Bond theme tune. I’ve got this half a song that me and Noel Gallagher worked on and I think it would be great for a Bond theme.
He went on to say,
There’s a bit of minor key going on. That would be an ambition definitely.
At the moment, the next James Bond movie hasn’t officially been announced and Daniel Craig has yet to confirm he will be starring in the new movie. But it seems the filmmakers are eager to get the ball rolling, and are even looking to Sherlock director, Paul McGuigan, to take a seat in the director’s chair.
Well, considering it’s the love child of Paul Weller and Noel Gallagher we can only imagine the half-finished song is going to be a corker, and Bond producers would be silly to pass on the Modfather…
