The British singer is desperate lend his voice to the opening of the latest 007 adventure Quantum of Solace, but accepts he will have to get past current favourite Amy Winehouse.

He said in an interview with “I think trying to do a themed song for a film is great, a song that encapsulates what the whole film is about.

“Bond would be a great one. To be honest I know Amy Winehouse is being hotly-tipped for it, which would be great if she gets to do that, but the Bond films are an institution in themselves and you’d love to, as an artist, get involved with something like that. It would be great to be involved”.

Sir Paul McCartney – whose band Wings created classic Bond theme Live and Let Die for the movie of the same name in 1973 – recently tipped Amy for the job.

He said: “I think Amy Winehouse would do a really good job with the Bond theme. My advice to her would be not to try and rhyme Solace with anything – that’s too hard.”

Other singers who have recorded Bond themes include Dame Shirley Bassey, Tina Turner, Sir Tom Jones and Duran Duran.
