During a recent interview, Duran Duran bassist John Taylor talked to NME about who should be touted as the next James Bond theme song singer. Duran Duran did the Bond theme for "A View To A Kill" in 1985.

As far as his recommendations are concerned, Taylor said,

"I don't see Ellie Goulding for Bond. Kanye West, Daft Punk or somebody interesting would be better. How about Florence And The Machine?"

You can see the full NME article here.

Interesting choices for sure, but I don't know if Daft Punk or Kanye West make the most sense for the new James Bond song. Florance And The machine I could kind of see. Who do you think should sing the "Spectre" theme song?
