Duffy for Bond theme?

Jack White and Duffy are the latest contenders for the Bond movie
17 June 2008 - There has been an abundance of rumours concerning who will record the theme music for the forthcoming James Bond film Quantum Of Solace.

A Mark Ronson-produced Amy Winehouse track and a song by X Factor winner Leona Lewis have both been touted and there was even tabloid gossip about a composition by Gorillaz mastermind Damon Albarn.

Now, two more names have been thrown into the confusing Bond mix.
“Well, a lady never exposes her secrets.”

Following producer Bernard Butler’s comments claiming his protégé Duffy would be ideal for the job, the Welsh singer was quizzed about the project at the MOJO Awards.

The 23 year-old did nothing to quell speculation, refusing to deny that she had submitted a song, and saying: “Well, a lady never exposes her secrets.”

In addition, Alex Turner spoke to 6 Music and revealed: “I’ve heard that Jack White were doin’ it,” a statement that was immediately followed by his Last Shadow Puppets cohort Miles Kane adding, “I’ve heard other things, I thought it were’ over, that race. We should just say we’re doing it.”

Before the pair – perhaps jokingly - confirmed, “Yeah, we are doing it.”

Damon Albarn? Dunno if he'd want to do it, but he's done some film music before and he'd probably do a great job...I would love to see him do it.

Daniel Craig Supporter
Well it doesn't matter to me longer someone does the new Bond theme.

Come on - it has to be Coldplay - Duffy hasn't even been round the block
