Alicia Keys and the White Stripes' Jack White have recorded the theme song to "Quantum of Solace," the 22nd James Bond film, which will be released worldwide in November, Columbia Pictures said Tuesday.

The song, "Another Way To Die," is the first duet in Bond soundtrack history, the studio said in a statement. White wrote and produced the song, and also played drums. The soundtrack to the movie will be released October 28 by Keys' J Records label.

"Quantum of Solace," starring Daniel Craig and directed by Marc Forster, will be released in North American theaters on November 7. Amy Winehouse and Leona Lewis had previously been rumored as the vocalists for the latest Bond theme.


As much as I wanted to see Amy Winehouse do it, this is still a really cool (and totally unexpected) choice. I love Alicia Keys' voice, but I'm not a big fan of the type of music she's been singing recently, so hopefully the song will edge away from blues-hiphop fusion and into a more rock/ballad type song.
