Writing’s On The Wall has already become the first Bond theme to score a number 1 of the UK music charts, but its only now that Sam Smith’s tune has got a music video.
As you’d expect for the theme song from a 007 movie, it’s a pretty cool and stylish video, giving plenty of hints at what we might expect from Spectre – which suggests it might not be the jolliest of films.
Sam Smith enlisted renowned music video director and long-term collaborator Luke Monaghan to direct the video. Shot in various locations throughout Rome, the video for Writing’s On The Wall opens with a poignant scene of Union Jack clad coffins and goes on to feature various shots of Smith filmed in the same locations as Spectre. The video is interspersed with extracts from the Spectre film including a love scene between Bond (Daniel Craig) and Lucia (Monica Bellucci), the beautiful and forbidden widow of an infamous criminal.
