Sam Smith turns into the smooth James Bond for the visual for “Writing’s On the Wall,” the theme song for the latest installment of the famous James Bond franchise, Spectre.
Filmed in Rome, the dramatic clip finds Smith among some of the ancient ruins performing the song while clips of the film are intertwined throughout.
“I tried to put myself in the shoes of Bond,” Smith told NPR. “My music is a diary and it’s a recap of my life, and I wanted to bring that kind of honesty.”
Spectre will arrive in American theaters on Nov. 7th.
