    Listen To Sam Smith's Bond Song "Writing’s On The Wall"

    The track appears to have divided opinion.

    Sam Smith's "Writing’s On The Wall", the theme song for the upcoming James Bond film Spectre, has been released:

    Smith shared a link to the track on Friday morning.

    Ladies & Gentleman, here it is... The James Bond 2015 theme tune to #Spectre 'Writing's On The Wall'

    And admitted it was a dream come true.

    I have been dreaming of this moment for a long long time.

    Unsurprisingly, Smith, the track, and Bond all started trending in the UK as people gave their opinions on the song.

    A former Bond was among the fans of the track.

    @samsmithworld has delivered a very haunting and wonderfully orchestrated #spectre theme song. Well done!

    New Bond song by @samsmithworld has just left me in a broken heap. Have a listen #Bravo #bravissimo #beravõ

    But many others weren't so impressed.

    Not sure on what to make out of #writingsonthewall - sounds more like Moulin Rouge rather than James bond

    "The name is Bland. James Bland." #writingsonthewall #SamSmith

    Sam Smith says he wrote the Bond song in 20 mins - it sounds like's an ersatz insult to all the great falsetto voices...

    Honestly, the new Bond song, Writing's On The Wall, sounds like it was written for Lana Del Rey. So why isn't she singing it, Mendes? WHY?!

    Sam Smith's bond theme is pretty meh, should have been it's own thing instead of trying to emulate every other theme ever

    Spectre is due to be released in the UK on 26 October.
