James Bond the producer is reportedly looking for new artists for the 007 film.

According to the latest findings of Daily MailBarbara Broccoli, who is the producer of James Bond franchise, is looking for new musical sensations to follow in the footsteps of big names like Billie Eilish, Adele and Sam Smith.

An insider recently spoke to the 62-year-old producer: “Barbara is very interested in the next Bond theme being more fun, more pop rock and not being filled with as much sadness as the last few themes have been. “

The source also revealed that Barbara “loves” the work of Oscar-winning sensations like Billie Eilish, Sam Smith and Adele who made history with their iconic contribution to 007 tunes.

“It would be prudent to go down that path again, especially since they all won the Oscar,” the source explained.

Nonetheless, they added: “But this next Bond needs to mix things up and return to a song in the vein of Duran Duran’s A View to a Kill”, as the new theme song should “resonate with both established fans of the series and new fans too.

“Barbara thinks that someone like Bruno Mars or The Weeknd could do something fun, or that a group like the Foo Fighters or Adam Levine alone or with Maroon 5 could have a catchy and fun theme,” teased the source in conclusion.
