Adele has started writing the new James Bond song, it has been reported.
The British songstress is working on a theme tune for the next movie in the iconic spy franchise, currently titled Bond 23.
Adele took a week off from touring recently due to a chest infection. It was during this time that the 23-year-old began penning lyrics for the track.
Thanks to her incredible chart success with her latest album 21, the song will be a strong contender to feature in the new movie.
"Adele is the obvious choice to record the next Bond theme,' a source told British newspaper The Sun. 'The last few songs for the spy movies have hardly set the charts alight. After her success this year filmmakers know the song is almost guaranteed to be a huge hit."
The singer will team up with producer Paul Epworth for the song.
Paul has previously worked with Cee Lo Green, Plan B and Florence and the Machine.
Adele has had huge success with her albums 19 and 21, both of which are autobiographical.
Stars including Sir Paul McCartney, Shirley Bassey, Alicia Keys, Madonna, Tina Turner and Carly Simon have all lent their voices to Bond songs in the past.
The next instalment will be directed by Sam Mendes and sees Daniel Craig reprise his role as the suave British spy.
The movie is due out later next year.
