Lana Del Rey Reveals Rejected James Bond Theme Song


  • James Bond Theme Rejection: Lana Del Rey revealed that she wrote a song for the James Bond film Spectre, but it was ultimately rejected by the franchise’s producers.
  • Released Song: The song, titled “24,” appears on Del Rey’s fourth album Honeymoon, which was released the same year as Spectre. Despite being turned down for the film, the song found its place on her album.
  • Del Rey’s Reflection: Speaking at the Ivor Novello Awards, Del Rey shared her admiration for the Bond films and expressed hope of contributing a song to the series in the future. She humorously praised Sam Smith’s Spectre theme, “Writing’s on the Wall,” which became the first Bond theme to reach Number One on the UK Singles Chart.
  • Comparison to Radiohead: Del Rey isn’t the only artist whose song was rejected for Spectre. Radiohead was also asked to write a theme for the film, and they released their unused track for free, highlighting a pattern of high-profile rejections by the Bond producers.
  • Future Projects: Del Rey also discussed her upcoming country-inspired album Lasso, scheduled for release in September, and her headlining performances at major festivals like Reading & Leeds 2024.
