James Bond (played by Daniel Craig) is making a return this year with a brand new film: No Time To Die. While things are currently a little opaque regarding what fans can expect, small details are beginning to be revealed. Although fans are eager to find out what is going to happen to the titular character, the latest news involves the franchise’s iconic soundtrack, and how it is evolving.
James Bond has seen a number of enormous soundtracks take hold of the films over the years.
Many of these have been ballads and symphonic epics, full of endless vocals and style.
However fans of the earlier James Bond films will remember a number of them included some guitars.
And now, Hans Zimmer, legendary composer, has spoken out on how he is crafting the new James Bond score with this in mind.

Speaking to Variety, Zimmer spoke about the work he has been doing on the upcoming spy film.
And, according to the composer, he explained a fateful call may be responsible for bringing back the guitars to the upcoming Bond soundtrack.
He told the publication: “I’ve known [producer] Barbara Broccoli for a long time, and we’re friends. I never thought we would work together on something like that, so it was surprising just to get the call.”
Zimmer then confessed: “I didn’t know if I wanted to do it.
“So I phoned Johnny Marr and I said: ‘I have two questions to ask you. First question is: what’s the only guitar part worth playing in a movie?’ And he said, ‘The Bond part’.
“And I said, ‘Yeah right. Second question: Do you think I should do the movie and would you play the guitar part?’ So that sort of settled that. Johnny was right.”
He went on to say how he and Marr wanted to “bring guitar back into the score.”
Zimmer added: “We were just embracing our inner John Barry [the original Bond composer from the 1960s].”

This may mean the upcoming film could include an incredibly crafted soundtrack full of guitar-riffs for the first time in a few films.
All eyes are on Daniel Craig at the moment as No Time To Die could be his last outing as the British spy.
Most recently Outlander star Sam Heughan spoke out about him potentially becoming the next Bond.
Speaking on This Morning, he explained: “Yeah, obviously it’s a dream for any actor, I think.”

Heughan said: “I auditioned for it back during Bond 21 – when Daniel Craig was in Casino Royale.”
Unfortunately, he was not successful in getting the role.
James Bond No Time To Die will be released November 12 2020.
