Another Way To Die, the theme song for the new Bond flick, Quantum of Solace, has finally been released. Performed by Jack White (of The White Stripes) and Alicia Keys it is the first duet ever in the history of James Bond soundtracks. Click here to listen to it online.

The track will be released on a limited edition 7-inch single (only 6,000 copies of the single will be released worldwide), starting 30th September in the US, and 6th October in the UK. It’s available for pre-order from amazon.com or recordstore.co.uk. The track is also available to purchase for digital download worldwide (excluding North America) through the iTunes Store. For North American fans, the track will be available from the 23rd of October.
While the reaction from fans has been mixed, I personally, didn’t like the song very much, preferring Chris Cornell’s You Know My Name from Casino Royale to this. What I feel is lacking in this song is the raw power that Cornell brought into You Know My Name, with both White and Keys making this song overtly lovey-dovey in tone. I have said earlier, and I stand by my point that Amy Winehouse would have been better for a Bond theme. But alas, love it or hate it, this is the song that’s going to make it to the Quantum of Solace soundtrack.


Lyrics

Another ringer with the slick trigger finger for Her Majesty
Another one with the golden tongue poisoning your fantasy
Another bill from a killer turned a thrill into a tragedy

Chorus
A door left open
A woman walking by
A drop in the water
A look in the eye
A phone on the table
A man on your side
Someone that you think that you can trust is just
Another way to die

Another tricky little gun giving solace to the one that’ll never see the sunshine
Another inch of your life sacrificed for your brother in the nick of time
Another dirty money, heaven sent honey turning on a dime

[Chorus]

Another girl with her finger on the world singing do you whatcha wanna hear?
Another gun thrown down and surrendered took away your fear
Hey! Another man that stands right behind you looking in the mirror

[Chorus]

Suit ’em up, bang bang!
