The feature documentary pulls back the curtain on the history of six decades of James Bond music, taking viewers on a journey from Sean Connery’s “Dr. No” through to Daniel Craig’s final outing in “No Time To Die.” Produced by John Battsek at Ventureland, MGM, and EON Productions, the film charts the history of the music, true tales behind the tunes, and famous faces who have recorded soundtracks for the james Bond movies.
The Sound of 007: Live from the Royal Albert Hall is an exclusive recording of the official charity concert at the Royal Albert Hall on 4 October. Guest vocalists will join a line up curated by five-time Bond composer David Arnold. The concert marks 60 years since the world premiere of “Dr. No,” the first 007 film, on 5 October 5 1962. Honoring the franchise’s long tradition of supporting charitable causes, the proceeds of The Sound of 007: Live from the Royal Albert Hall will benefit two music charities: Nordoff Robbins and The BRIT Trust. Following the concert, a custom Duesenberg guitar signed by Michael G. Wilson, Barbara Broccoli, David Arnold, and the artists will be auctioned online at Christie’s to raise additional funds for the music charities.
