New James Bond Soundtrack
Quantum of Solace: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack features multi-Grammy Award-winning and platinum selling recording artists Alicia Keys and Jack White (from The White Stripes and The Raconteurs) on "Another Way To Die" – the first duet ever recorded in Bond music history. "Another Way To Die" is currently available via all digital music providers.
The "Another Way To Die" video is currently in power rotation at MTV Hits and MTVU and is the No. 6 most viewed video on Myspace. The video was directed by MK12, the design team that created the main title sequence for the film, and music video director Paul Brown (Daughtry, Josh Groban, James Blunt, and others).
Described as a "rock-and-soul superduo" by People magazine, White and Keys join the diverse lineage of great singers chosen to perform previous James Bond theme songs, including Shirley Bassey ("Goldfinger" – 1965, "Diamonds are Forever" – 1972), Tom Jones ("Thunderball" – 1966), Nancy Sinatra ("You Only Live Twice" – 1967), Paul McCartney & Wings ("Live and Let Die" – 1973), Sheena Easton ("For Your Eyes Only" – 1981), Duran Duran ("A View to a Kill" – 1985), Chris Cornell ("You Know My Name" – 2006), and more.
With a storied history in the film music industry, Grammy Award-winning composer and producer David Arnold returns to score his fifth consecutive installment of James Bond thematic music. The 23 Arnold-composed tracks mirror the high-level intensity and suspense in the film.
Daniel Craig reprises his role as Ian Fleming's James Bond 007 in QUANTUM OF SOLACE, the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures/Columbia Pictures release of EON Productions' 22nd adventure in the longest running film franchise in motion picture history. The film is produced by Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli and directed by Marc Forster. The screenplay was written by Paul Haggis and Neal Purvis & Robert Wade.
