Harry Styles has been named favourite to sing the next James Bond theme tune

Harry Styles has been named favourite to sing the next James Bond theme tune

There's no denying Harry Styles is one of the biggest artists in the music industry.

The British singer has released three albums, earned plenty of awards and nominations, and has just wrapped up humungous world tour.

But he could be about to have another accolade in his already glittering career.

Fewer than two dozens artists have been lucky enough to lend their vocals for a James Bond film and Styles has become a favourite to join that exclusive club.


William Kadjanyi, political analyst at Star Sports, said in a statement: "With the next James Bond film being discussed more and more, it seems increasingly likely that Harry Styles, one of the biggest names in music today, could be the voice we hear in the opening titles of the next Bond film.

"And this is not forgetting Ed Sheeran, whose music has already appeared in the likes of The Hobbit, at 8/1 and the ever-popular Lewis Capaldi, following closely behind Styles in the market at 10/1."

While the theme song for every James Bond film has come from a variety of artists from around the world, it's interesting that the top three contenders are all British.


Styles, Sheeran and Capaldi would all bring something very different for their take on a 007 film.

The former One Direction star is at 7/1 odds, while Elton John comes in fourth at 12/1 odds.

However, we won't know who has been picked for the song for a while.

That's because we don't even know who the next James Bond will be.


Daniel Craig finally handed in his Walther PPK and ditched his 007 moniker in No Time To Die.

It's unclear how the long-running film franchise is going to reboot the character with a new British spy.

But most people are focused on who the lucky actor will be to get that honour.

There have been a bunch of names thrown into the mix like Idris Elba, Tom Hardy, Henry Cavill, Tom Holland, and Aaron Taylor-Johnson.


Taylor-Johnson has been cropping up a lot lately and bookmakers have him as a frontrunner.

Coral's John Hill said: "Aaron Taylor-Johnson is a name that continues to be heavily linked to the next James Bond role, and that is reflected in our betting, particularly over the last 24 hours where it has been one-way traffic for the British actor.

"Taylor-Johnson tops our next Bond betting ahead of James Norton and Henry Cavill respectively.

"We could be set for a three-way race between those actors to replace Daniel Craig."


We'll have to wait and see what happens.
