Paul Epworth talks about recording 'Skyfall' with Adele
The successful producer and co-writer of "Skyfall", the theme to the 23rd James Bond adventure, chatted to EW
about working on the song.
[The producers] said they wanted a dramatic ballad basically,â Epworth said. âWith having read the script and trying to set the whole thing up in that context, where it happens in the film, there was really only one thing it could be. It was interesting to want to do something that was simultaneously dark and final, like a funeral, and to try and turn it into something that was not final. A sense of death and rebirth.â
âWithin 10 minutes, she put down most of the vocals,â he says. âShe had the lyrics ready in her head when she drove over. It was the most absurd thing. Sheâs fast, but it was really quite phenomenal.â
