Will Shirley Bassey record the next Bond theme song?

ICON: Shirley Bassey

DAME SHIRLEY Bassey has said she would be keen to record another James Bond song.

The 79-year-old singer has recorded three Bond theme songs; Goldfinger, Diamonds Are Forever and Moonraker.

Speaking to David Walliams in a BBC special celebrating her 80th birthday and career, Bassey said she'd be open to the possibility of recording a fourth Bond track, saying “Yes, why not!”

The iconic singer also revealed that she still gets nervous when performing Goldfinger, 50 years after its release.

“It's a little terrifying because I know that note is coming at the end, and it's very nerve-wracking, am I going to make that note?"

The next Bond film is expected to be released in 2018, with no artist yet linked to the film's song, let alone any idea who will be playing 007.

To honour the Welsh star ahead of her 80th birthday in January, Walliams met her for the one-off television special, which will include live performances and comedy.
