Sam Smith has shot down rumours that he will record the next James Bond theme song, saying that he would love to do it but has not been approached.

The Stay with Me singer told NME: "No, I have no idea what that was about and I know as much as you do. You probably know more than me – I didn't even read the article."

He continued: "I think it's something everyone would love to do, but yeah, it was all news to me. I won't say any more on it."

Smith added that Jack White and Alicia Keys' 2008 Bond theme song, Another Way to Die, is his favourite.

"I love that – I thought it was amazing. Her voice and his voice together, I thought, was really interesting," he said.
