Adele's James Bond Theme Due "Oct. 4 or 5"; Ex-Bond Girl Famke Janssen Can't Wait to Hear It

Dan MacMedan/WireImageA few more details have leaked out regarding Adele's long-awaited theme for the new James Bond movie, Skyfall.  Showbiz411.com reports that the single is now expected on October 4 or October 5 via social media, so keep an eye out for it.  Meanwhile, the website has posted some additional lyrics to the song:

“Skyfall/Is where we start/A thousand miles and poles apart/Where worlds collide/and days are denied/You can take my name/But you’ll never take my heart.”

Showbiz411.com adds that Adele's record label wants to make "Skyfall" the biggest-selling digital single ever.  In order for it to take that title, it'll have to outsell the current champ, "I've Gotta Feeling," by the Black Eyed Peas, which has moved more than eight million copies.

One person who's excited about hearing "Skyfall" is former Bond girl Famke Janssen, who played Xenia Onatopp in GoldenEye, the first Bond film to star Pierce Brosnan in the title role. 

Janssen, who has since gone on to star in the X Men films, as well as in the Liam Neeson action thriller Taken and its upcoming sequel Taken 2, tells ABC News Radio that she doesn't have a favorite Bond theme currently, but adds, "I really would be curious to see what Adele's gonna do.  That would be amazing."

Says Janssen of the Bond themes, which have been recorded by everyone from Madonna, Gladys Knight and Duran Duran, to Sheryl Crow, Alicia Keys and Tina Turner, "I just...think they're clever.  They're clever with who they use for the singers.  [Adele's] great, of course.  She's got a fantastic voice.  So, every single time they do something new.  It's wonderful."
