Annie Lennox is the latest star linked to the new James Bond theme song.
The Scottish singer is rumoured to be recording the title track for the latest 007 film 'Quantum of Solace'.
Amy Winehouse, Leona Lewis, Duffy and Duran Duran have previously been mentioned as possible artists for the song. Duran Duran have already recorded the theme for one Bond film - 1985's 'A View to a Kill'.
Super-producer Mark Ronson is working on the track, and although Leona has recently emerged as the favourite, movie bosses will have the final say on the decision.
The reason so many stars have been linked to the project is because producers invite artists to submit tracks and they pick their favourite. While some stars are approached directly, others put in their own bid.
'Quantum of Solace' starring Daniel Craig as Bond, Gemma Arterton and Dame Judi Dench will be in cinemas worldwide from October.
Annie Lennox rose to fame in the 80s as one half of pop duo Eurhythmics. She then went on to have a successful solo career in the 90s.
She most recently performed at Nelson Mandela's 90th birthday party last weekend (27.06.08).
