Alicia Keys, Jack White to Duet on New "James Bond" Theme

July 29, 2008 3:50 PM ET

A couple months ago, Alicia Keys talked about her desire to collaborate with the White Stripes. She'll have to settle for the next best thing, as Keys and Jack White are teaming up for the theme song of the next James Bond film Quantum of Solace. "Another Way to Die" was written by White, who will also play drums and produce the track. The song marks the first time in Bond history that the film's theme will be a duet. When we reported that Keys wanted to collaborate with White, we assumed it was just wishful thinking. We didn't think it'd come to fruition so quickly, or that they'd make a Bond theme out of it. The soundtrack for Quantum isn't due out until October 28th. The White/Keys combination beat out rumored candidates Amy Winehouse, Leona Lewis and Duffy for the right to try to join Duran Duran, Shirley Bassey and Carly Simon in the Bond theme hall of fame.

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
