Chris Cornell wants Adele for Bond theme

Rocker Chris Cornell has branded Adele the "perfect choice" to sing the new Bond theme tune.

The Soundgarden frontman recorded the lead track for Daniel Craig's first outing as 007 in Casino Royale in 2006, and now he's backing the Rolling In The Deep hitmaker to lay down vocals for the next superspy installment, Skyfall.


He tells U.K. radio station Capital FM, "Adele would be the perfect choice, I can't think of a better one. She's phenomenal and it's nice, in a day and age where so many vocals are fixed by computers, that the biggest album of last year was somebody who sings for real.


"I would hate to see music become more mechanistic and less human, so her success has been great."
