British singing sensation Adele provided the theme song to the 2012 James Bond film, "Skyfall." The song, written by Adele and producer Paul Epworth, was released on Oct. 5, 2012, at 0:07 British Summer Time as part of "Global James Bond Day," celebrating the 50th anniversary of the release of "Dr. No." The song entered the U.K. singles chart at No. 4 and rose to No. 2 in its second week, selling a total of 176,000 copies. It also entered the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart at No. 8, Adele's first song to debut in the Top 10, selling 261,000 copies in the United States in its first three days.


Adele is coming to the Golden Globes.

The executive producer of the show says the 24-year-old Grammy-winning pop star is set to make her first post-baby appearance at Sunday's ceremony, where she is nominated for original song for the James Bond theme "Skyfall."

Adele welcomed her first child, with boyfriend Simon Konecki, in October. The singer has kept a low profile since announcing her pregnancy in June after sweeping the Grammy Awards last February with six wins.

Her single, "Skyfall," will compete at the Golden Globes with Taylor Swift's song from "The Hunger Games," Jon Bon Jovi's number from "Stand Up Guys," Keith Urban's track from "Act of Valor," and "Suddenly" from "Les Miserables."

The Globes will be presented Sunday at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
