The vinyl is available as a digital download and a 2CD set; on October 8, 3LP black vinyl will be released, plus a limited-edition gold vinyl will be available exclusively via uDiscover Music and Sound of Vinyl.

Each compilation features celebrated theme songs from the longest-running film franchise in history. The Best Of Bond…James Bond is available for purchase and vinyl preorder.

In addition to Billie Eilish, Adele, and Sam Smith, the signature instrumental “James Bond Theme” by The John Barry Orchestra is included on the project, which remains one of the most recognizable themes from film.

The collection also includes Dame Shirley Bassey (“Goldfinger,” “Diamonds Are Forever” and “Moonraker”). With “Goldfinger,” Bassey achieved her first Top 10 hit, reaching No.8 on The Billboard Hot 100 and No.2 on the Adult Contemporary charts.

Bassey made her Oscars debut at the 85th Academy Awards, where she performed a stirring rendition of “Goldfinger” as part of the telecast’s James Bond 50th Anniversary tribute, which was celebrated by UMe with vinyl reissues of long-out-of-print soundtracks to Dr. No, Goldfinger, and Live And Let Die.

Along with Louis Armstrong (“We Have All The Time In The World”), Nancy Sinatra (“You Only Live Twice”), Lulu (“The Man With The Golden Gun”), The Best Of Bond…James Bond also includes Paul McCartney & Wings (“Live And Let Die”). Written by Paul McCartney and Linda McCartney, performed by Paul McCartney & Wings, and produced by former Beatles producer George Martin, the title theme song hit No.2 on the chart, and it was nominated for both a GRAMMY Award, for Best Instrumental Arrangement Accompanying Vocalist(s) / Best Background Arrangement, and an Academy Award, for Best Original Song.

The single “Live And Let Die” became the first Bond theme song to win a GRAMMY award (Best Pop Vocal Performance, 1973), and the song continues to be a highlight in McCartney’s live performances.

Today also sees the release of two original Hans Zimmer songs for the No Time To Die soundtrack, “Matera” and “Shouldn’t We Get To Know Each Other First,” officially out on October 1.
