Keys And White's 007 Duet

The first duet in the history of James Bond themes has been recorded.
The R&B singer, Alicia Keys and rocker Jack White have joined forces to lay down the theme tune for the next Bond film, 'Quantum of Solace'.
Keys and White - the star of bands White Stripes and The Raconteurs - teamed up for the theme, 'Another Way To Die.
There had been speculation that the coveted job would go to Amy Winehouse, Leona Lewis or Duffy and although Winehouse had been working on a theme with producer Mark Ronson, that was scrapped as the singer was not well enough to record.
Quantum of Solace producers Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli have confirmed that White and Keys and recorded. They said in a statment: "We are delighted and pleased to have two such exciting artists as Jack and Alicia, who were inspired by our film to join together their extraordinary talents in creating a unique sound for Quantum of Solace."
Previous James Bond signature themes have been recorded by the likes of Duran Duran, Sir Paul McCartney and Dame Shirley Bassey.
McCartney's performance of 'Live and Let Die' was the first Bond theme song to be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song and reached No 7 on the UK charts.
The theme to the most recent Bond film, 'Casino Royale', was recorded by another US rocker, Chris Cornell.
Quantum of Solace, which will be the 22nd official Bond film will be released in the UK on October 31.
Daniel Craig will reprise the role of the smooth talking secret agent.
