All puns aside, news has been released that Jack White (The White Stripes, The Raconteurs) will be part of an unlikely duo, teaming with Soul/R&B star Alicia Keys to perform the theme song for the upcoming James Bond film, Quantum Of Solace.
“The male half of the White Stripes, who wrote and produced the tune, called “Another Way to Die,” will also play drums. The film’s soundtrack is due out Oct. 28, while the movie itself, the second 007 flick featuring hunky blond Bond Daniel Craig, hits theaters Nov. 7. …White and Keys’ collaboration marks the first time a duo have tackled the Bond song, which hopefully will be more “Thunderball” (Tom Jones = suave and sophisticated) than “Die Another Day” (Madonna = Pierce Brosnan getting his ass kicked in a Korean prison).”
Now, when you think of Alicia Keys, the first thing that comes to mind is definitely not the phrase “bad ass”, but she has bolstered her bad assery by merely being involved in 1) Making music with Jack White and 2) Being a part of the new and improved Bond series, in which Bond is more likely to exert bloody revenge for a fallen lover than worry about spewing off some cheesy line about the way he likes his cocktail.
