While Katy Perry managed to nab Billboard‘s Woman of the Year honors, Adele was able to score the coveted cover slot of Rolling Stone’s annual Women Who Rock issue.
The cover will serve as nice promo for Adele’s upcoming single “Let the Sky Fall”, which serves as the title track for the new Bond film, Skyfall. The “ominous, dramatic ballad” apparently drops in the first week of October, just ahead of Skyfall’s theatrical release on the 26th.
According to the relatively-reliable Roger Friedman over at Showbiz 411, Sony’s goal is to make “Let The Sky Fall” the biggest-selling digital single ever. Yes, you heard right: EVER!
Ryan Tedder, who was lucky enough to hear the track, has already called it, “[the] best Bond song in my lifetime.”
“Let the Sky Fall” will be physically available through the Skyfall soundtrack, which drops in November, but I think Sony should also stick it on a new version of 21. Why not add a few million more copies to one of the highest-selling albums of all-time?
Anyway, be sure to savor “Let the Sky Fall” while you can, because it’s going to be the only new Adele music coming our way for a very long time. According to Rolling Stone, who spoke to both producer Paul Epworth and Adele’s manager Jonathan Dickins, music isn’t high on the priority list of the pregnant songstress. Dickins predicts that we won’t see a new album until at least 2014.
Oh well. You know what they say: quality over quantity.
