According to the BBC, within 10 hours of being released in the UK on Friday, Adele's "Skyfall" theme was topping the iTunes charts.

Epworth told BBC 6 Music that the "dark and moody" theme was intended to echo the narrative of the film.

"The [Bond theme] songs seem to fall into groups, in terms of subject matter," said Epworth. "Some of them have a romanticism to them, and some of them are very much about the narrative of the film.

The full single was released at 00:07 BST.
