Ed Sheeran hasn’t closed the door on recording the latest Bond theme for No Time To Die.
The Perfect singer has announced an 18-month break after completing dates on his record-breaking Divide World Tour, but his manager, Stuart Camp, insists the singer/songwriter will race back to the studio if Bond bosses want him to record the theme to their next movie.
Camp tells Music Week he met 007 producer Barbara Broccoli in Dublin in 2017 and she was “interested” in asking Ed to record the track for the film, then titled Bond 25.
“(Director) Danny Boyle was attached to the film after that, who made Yesterday, so there was a close connection there,” Camp said, referring to Sheeran’s part in the Beatles-themed film. “Obviously they changed directors but we’re still open to it. But they’re not even having those conversations yet.”
Sheeran is keen and asks his manager daily for updates.
“(I tell him), The thing they do last is the music…,” Camp added. “It’s certainly something he’d want to do though. It’s a box that’s still to be ticked, for sure
