Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell Thinks Adele Is ‘Perfect Choice’ for Bond Theme

Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell is vouching for Adele to sing the new James Bond theme song. He hopes the U.K. songstress is considered for the soundtrack on the new entry into the ’007′ film series, ‘Skyfall.’

Cornell was in the U.K. with his band during the Download Festival when MTV caught up with him and he expressed his admiration for Adele. Cornell himself contributed the song ‘You Know My Name’ as the theme for the 2006 Bond movie ‘Casino Royale.’

“Adele would be the perfect choice — I can’t think of a better one,” Cornell says. “She’s phenomenal and it’s nice, in a day and age where so many vocals are fixed by computers, that the biggest album of last year was somebody who sings for real. I would hate to see music become more mechanistic and less human, so her success has been great.”

Cornell also touched on Soundgarden playing in the U.K. for the first time in 15 years. “It’s the audience — Download crowds are f—ing lively and always have energy. Being back together is exciting because after we split, we somehow morphed into a classic rock band, so people are coming to see us who never got chance the first time.”

Soundgarden have finished recording a new album, their first since 1996′s ‘Down on the Upside.’ While no release date has been given, they hope to have it out by September or October of this year, according to Cornell.
