It's fair to say that Chris Cornell's You Know My Name is one of the greatest James Bond theme songs ever, soundtracking the opening and closing credits to 2006's excellent Casino Royale to goosebump-inducing effect. And now, following the release of the theme for the upcoming No Time To Die movie, Anthony Vincent of Ten Second Songs has covered this latest Bond score in the style of the late Soundgarden frontman.

No Time To Die is originally performed by pop megastar Billie Eilish, and though the teen singer's effort is undoubtedly absolutely wicked too, it's wonderful to hear a version of No Time To Die that sounds very much like Chris' unmistakable vocals.

"One of my favorite Bond songs is You Know My Name by Chris Cornell," says Anthony. "I really like No Time To Die, and I was curious to see if it would work in the style of Chris. Here's the result."

Anthony isn't the first artist to give No Time To Die a fresh spin; last week, American rockers Our Last Night attempted a much rockier cover of the Billie Eilish track.

Anyway, here's Chris' You Know My Name, just because:

“I decided that I was going to sing it like Tom Jones, in that crooning style," Chris told the New York Post of his Bond effort in 2006. "I wanted people to hear my voice. And Live And Let Die is a fantastic song. Paul McCartney wouldn’t have written it if not for that movie. I [also] wanted to write a song in its own universe. I knew I’d never have it again – a big orchestra – so I wanted to have fun with it.”

He added of how it came about: “They wanted a voice that fit well with his persona. They were looking for a singer who was unapologetically male, someone with introspection in his voice but not afraid to be masculine.”
