No song.

Quick heads up that David Arnold is on Simon Mayo's show on Scala Radio in the UK this morning. Whether he mentions anything about the new Bond, I don't know.

Arnold spoke about his Bond scores and the influence of John Barry but said he hasn't been asked or heard anything about doing the new one (yet). He also picked Ecstasy of Gold as his piece to hear.

Arnold on Twitter:

Re:Bond 25.,when ever there’s a new Bond in production I get asked a lot if I’m doing it ,which is a lovely thing , but as of right now,there is zero news. Anything outside of an official Eon announcement is speculation . Excited about the film though ...great to see Felix back

He's liked a lot of tweets in response to his original tweet; I think if they asked, he would say yes.

Being liked is one thing. I am sure Mr Arnold appreciates. But ultimately it doesn't make him eligible de facto.

This is a business, not a popularity contest.

The job will possibly end up in the hands of Hans Zimmer or Alexandre Desplat.

The director doesn't seem to have an ongoing collaborator composer.
The only one he's used twice is Dan Romer (as far as I can tell), but I doubt he would go to bat for him like Mendes did for Thomas Newman? Plus, I imagine the producers would want a big name (like T Newman was/is).
It's likely he'll use whoever the producers deem most appropriate.
That all my pure speculation, mind smile

I genuinely think it will be Pemberton. His score for The Man from UNCLE was excellent. Not saying he would do something similar for a Bond movie, but he's definitely capable. I wouldn't want another Newman score, don't like his Bond work at all.

OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE:

THE 25TH JAMES BOND ADVENTURE
SET TO START PRINCIPAL PHOTOGRAPHY

Directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga
Produced by Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli
Starring Daniel Craig as James Bond 007

JAMAICA, APRIL 25, 2019 – GoldenEye in Jamaica. James Bond Producers, Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli today confirmed the start of principal photography on the 25th official James Bond film begins on 28 April 2019. From Albert R. Broccoli’s EON Productions and Metro Goldwyn Mayer Studios, the film is directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga and stars Daniel Craig, who returns for his fifth film as Ian Fleming’s James Bond 007.

Metro Goldwyn Mayer will release the 25th James Bond feature film domestically through their United Artists Releasing banner on April 8, 2020; through Universal Pictures International and Metro Goldwyn Mayer in the UK and internationally from April 3, 2020.

Director, Cary Joji Fukunaga confirmed the returning cast, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Rory Kinnear, Léa Seydoux, Ben Whishaw, Jeffrey Wright and introduced Ana de Armas, Dali Benssalah, David Dencik, Lashana Lynch, Billy Magnussen and Rami Malek.

Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.

The 007 production will be based at Pinewood Studios in the UK, and on location in London, Italy, Jamaica and Norway.

Wilson and Broccoli commented, “We’re thrilled to return to Jamaica with Bond 25, Daniel Craig’s fifth instalment in the 007 series, where Ian Fleming created the iconic James Bond character and Dr No and Live And Let Die were filmed.”

Written by Neal Purvis & Robert Wade, Scott Z. Burns with Cary Joji Fukunaga and Phoebe Waller-Bridge, other members of the creative team are; Director of Photography Linus Sandgren, Editor Tom Cross and Elliot Graham, Production Designer Mark Tildesley, Costume Designer Suttirat Larlarb, Supervising Stunt Coordinator Olivier Schneider, 2nd Unit Stunt Coordinator Lee Morrison and Visual Effects Supervisor Charlie Noble. Returning members to the team are; 2nd Unit Director Alexander Witt, Special Effects and Action Vehicles Supervisor Chris Corbould and Casting Director Debbie McWilliams.

Spectre, the 24th James Bond film, was a global box office hit, opening #1 in 81 territories around the world, including the U.S., and earning $880 million at the global box office. The film broke a new all-time box office record in the UK with the biggest seven-day opening of all time at $63.8 million. Skyfall, the 23rd film in the series, earned $1.1 billion worldwide.

The start of production launch of Bond 25 was streamed live on the official James Bond channels: 007.com, Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, and the video is now available on demand on all of these sites.

NOTES:

The announcement took place at GoldenEye in Jamaica, once the home of Ian Fleming where he created the James Bond character in 1952. Ian Fleming wrote 12 novels and two collections of short stories on the island. GoldenEye is owned and operated by Island Outpost, founded by Chris Blackwell who formerly owned Island Records.

GoldenEye will not be used as a filming location for Bond 25.

The first 007 film, Dr No, produced by Albert R Broccoli and Harry Saltzman, Fleming’s sixth novel, filmed on location in Jamaica in 1962 starring Sean Connery.

The production has employed approximately 500 local Jamaican cast and crew and has support from the Government of Jamaica led by the Ministry of Culture, Ministry of Tourism and the Film Commission.

James Bond is the longest running, and one of the most successful franchises of all time, with twenty-four films produced and the twenty-fifth about to commence principal photography. Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli succeeded Albert R 'Cubby' Broccoli and have produced the past eight Bond films together, including the highly successful Skyfall and Spectre. All of the James Bond films have been made in collaboration with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios or United Artists, its predecessor.

I feel like one area where Broccoli and Wilson can flex some producer muscles is composer, especially when the music is so inextricably linked to the identity of the series. Of the composers Fukunaga has worked with before, Dario Marianelli seems like a strong candidate. He provided a lovely score for JANE EYRE and has done the big action thing before.

Have nothing to go on but gut, and to your point, Kev, I think they'll compromise and probably use someone new to Fukunaga.

Arnold would be a welcome return, but I would love to see Abel Korzeniowski get a shot at this. Maybe by now he finally has the cache to get the gig.

SPECTRE way underperformed compared to SKYFALL.
Proving once again that you can't just throw anything out there and expect fans to show up Quality counts.
