Bond song 'not a classic but good enough'

Sam Smith's 'Writing's on the Wall' released to mixed reviews

Sam Smith's 'Writing's On the Wall', the theme to the next James Bond film 'Spectre', has been released to mixed reviews.

It's the first Bond song to be recorded by a British male solo artist since Tom Jones' Thunderball in 1965.

BBC Entertainment Correspondent Colin Paterson told BBC Breakfast that the song faces stiff competition if it is to reach number one in the charts.

The official video has not been released at the time of writing, the images used in this video are from the Spectre trailer.
