Duffy James Bond themeDuffy may be the voice behind the next James Bond theme. Work has already started on the follow-up to Quantum of Solace, starring as the British spy, and one of the film’s producers wants the Welsh Duffy to record the title song.

Producer Michael G. Wilson told Britain’s The Sun newspaper: “I would love to get to sing the next tune. I think she is wonderful. Amy Winehouse would be good too.
“We have started work on the new film, which I can’t say anything about. Daniel Craig is very keen to get going.”

Back to Black singer Amy Winehouse was due to submit a track for Quantum of Solace with producer Mark Ronson, but sessions were stopped as she reportedly “wasn’t ready” to record.  Another Way To Die, performed by Jack White of The White Stripes and soul singer Alicia Keys, was later chosen as the theme song.

Duffy, whose song Mercy picked up the PRS Most Performed Work prize at the Ivor Novello Awards - has revealed she is to make her film debut, although admits she isn’t too enthusiastic about it.  She reportedly said: “I’m making a movie. It’ll probably be rubbish.” If Duffy does sing the theme for the next James Bond film she will be the third Welsh artist to contribute to the spy series, after Tom Jones and Dame Shirley Bassey.

World AIDS day was the catalyst for the launch of (RED)WIRE, a digital music magazine raising funds to help combat AIDS in Africa. U2, Sheryl Crow and others have videos posted already, as does one Jay-Z. His latest video for the song “Brooklyn We Go Hard” is absolutely incredible and you are required to watch and listen to it multiple times.

Watch it because the incredible Typographic Illustration skills are from none other than Evan Roth, who was kind enough to include the source code in this video as well. Expect to here this track non-stop starting next month, as it’s included in the upcoming NOTORIOUS film. Yes, it’s produced by but NO, there is not a single note of Auto-Tune in this track.

Twilight SoundtrackThe second phase of domination is officially complete.

Now that we’re just eight days away from the big-screen adaptation of Stephenie Meyer’s novel, it’s becoming increasingly impossible to avoid anything with Robert Pattinson’s face on it. The mania over the best-selling book has inspired collector’s edition magazine covers (EW), news packages (Nightline) and sight-seeing tours (Forks, WA). It’s even evolved into a #1 album.

After two turns at the top of the charts, AC/DC’s Black Ice was just dethroned by the soundtrack for the vampire-themed movie. Although Twilight is now the third soundtrack this year to reach #1 (following and Mamma Mia!), it’s the only one since 2006’s Sing-a-Longs and Lullabies for Curious George to debut there.

Twilight - which includes tracks from Linkin Park, Muse and Paramore - sold 165,000 units last week. AC/DC came in second with 160,000 while came in third with 110,000.
