Adele’s new track “Skyfall” for the latest 007 installment of the same name was supposed to be released at precisely 7:07 last night (Oct. 4) but apparently the Internet didn’t feel like being poetic and the song ended up leaking early, as anticipated songs are wont to do.

The track, co-written and produced by Adele’s frequent collaborator Paul Epworth, is powered by Adele’s beautiful voice and her incredible vocal range. Adele even overpowers the 77-piece orchestra, which was arranged by Epworth and Emmy-nominated film and TV composer J.A.C. Redford.

The new single is the first since her last album, 21, so we’re pretty stoked. I can confidently say I’m putting this in the 007 Soundtrack Hall of Fame. I think everyone else agrees — it’s already number one on iTunes.
