Adele's James Bond Theme "Skyfall" Debuts

Dan MacMedan/WireImage(NEW YORK) -- After much anticipation, Adele's James Bond theme, "Skyfall," debuted Thursday night at 7:07 p.m. Eastern time. That would be 0:07 Friday morning in her native London.

The majestic track features a 77-piece orchestra and hopeful lyrics from Adele. She sings in the chorus, "Let the sky fall/When it crumbles/We will stand tall/Face it all together."

The song, named after the new Bond movie of the same name, debuted on Adele's official website, Adele.tv. It's now available for purchase.

"Skyfall" has a chance to become the second Bond theme to hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, following Duran Duran's 1985 theme "A View to a Kill."

There's also talk that "Skyfall" could be nominated for an Oscar, though HitFix.com speculates that it could be disqualified from consideration because it has elements of the signature James Bond music.

If it does receive an Oscar nod, it would become the fourth Bond theme to accomplish the feat.

The release of "Skyfall" coincides with the 50th anniversary of the debut of the first James Bond film, Dr. No, which is being celebrated on Friday.

Skyfall, again starring Daniel Craig as 007, opens in the U.S. on Nov. 9.
