With a new 007 film on the horizon, bookies are also eyeing up the chances of a track from the Modfather after it emerged that Weller and his friend Noel Gallagher had been working on a Bond theme song together.
“I want to write a James Bond theme tune,” said Weller. “I’ve got this half a song that me and Noel Gallagher worked on and I think it would be great for a Bond theme. There’s a bit of minor key going on. That would be an ambition definitely.”
Weller also recently joined Skunk Anansie on stage for a duet in London for a rendition of ‘You Do Something To Me’.
