Liam Gallagher is petitioning to perform the new James Bond theme song. In an interview with Today FM, Gallagher confirmed his interest to pen the theme for the 25th Bond movie, No Time To Die.
Gallagher offered his critical summary of the movie, describing it as “all about death, innit.”
“Die not next week, can’t be arsed dying today, might die fucking next month, there’s a lot of death going on.”
Though he’s not knocking it, and is keen to get involved with the project. “But you know they can give us a call, why not,” he shared. Which we interpret as the closest thing Liam Gallagher is ever going to get to expressing enthusiasm towards something.
Gallagher acknowledged that he met with Bond producer Barbara Broccoli in 2017 to open up a dialogue about him penning the theme.
“We met Barbara Broccoli when we played Dublin and they were interested.
“Danny Boyle was attached to the film after that, who made Yesterday, so there was a close connection there. Obviously, they changed directors but we’re still open to it, but they’re not even having those conversations yet.”
No Time To Die is set to be Daniel Craig’s swan song as Bond. We honestly believe that Liam Gallagher is the only person on this earth with the swagger and bravado necessary to send Craig off in style. The film hits cinemas in 2020.
Elsewhere in the interview, Gallagher sung praised of Quentin Tarantino — and expressed that he wouldn’t be opposed to a future collaboration.
“‘Gone’ is a top tune, I could see that in a Tarantino film,” he said. “If I could work with anyone? Tarantino, he’s pretty good, isn’t he? There’s a lot of him in ‘Gone’.
“We don’t write music to go, ‘Right let’s put it in a film,’ but if people pick up on it then they’re welcome to it.”
Gallagher will be heading around the country in December, catch him at one of the below tour dates.
