"It's always been one of the best Bond themes ever, and what a great time to re-record this as we celebrate 50 years of Bond," Burke is quoted by the Daily Star as saying.

The original was recorded by Paul McCartney & Wings back in 1973, and was also a hit for Guns N' Roses in 1991.

Burke's version was produced by Richard "Biff" Stannard, who has previously worked with the Spice Girls and Little Mix.

The star recently revealed that she is currently working on her third studio album.
