Fans of Sam Smith just got an awesome treat from the talented musician.

Following in the footsteps of Madonna, Beyonce & Adele, the “Not the Only One” crooner revealed he is the latest artist to sing the James Bond theme song. Pretty awesome right?
Smith took to Twitter to announce the news earlier today. The song is titled "Writings on the Wall," and was written by Smith and his “Stay with Me” co-writer Jimmy Napes. Below is the caption from Smith on Instagram in which he shared his feelings on the song and his involvement in the film:
"This is one of the highlights of my career. I am honoured to finally announce that I will be singing the next Bond theme song. I am so excited to be a part of this iconic British legacy and join an incredible line up of some of my biggest musical inspirations. I hope you all enjoy the song as much as I enjoyed making it."
This is awesome news for Smith and the Bond film. Sam Smith is one of the top artists in music with a unique voice. Like Adele, his prescence in the film will be impactful and inspiring.
I can't wait to hear this song or watch this film. You think Sam Smith's track will top Adele's from "Skyfall?"
I don't think it will top Adele's Skyfall, but he is very talented so I'm sure it will be good
@mattk95 yeah I agree, it may be hard to top Adele's version but I think he will do a great job regardless
Niiiice. <3
oooh @MattK95 you're right that would have been excellent. I have this faint hope that they chose an openly gay singer for a reason though
@christianmordi yeah I'm sure he will ^^ Honestly I was kind of hoping for a Lana Del Rey Bond song, if probably prefer that to Sam Smith but I guess I'll see when the song comes out
