The most recent entry in the James Bond franchise, Spectre (2015), features the return of Bond’s original nemesis: the shadow organization known as SPECTRE (SPecial Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion). While an enthralling film, as most of Daniel Craig’s Bond adventures have been (I’m on the fence about Quantum of Solace), I found its immediate predecessor Skyfall to still be marginally better. That being said, the score, assembled by Thomas Newman (youngest son of the legendary Alfred Newman) is phenomenal and a worthy addition to the collection of James Bond film scores.
Enjoy the all-too-short interview with Thomas Newman on how the score for Spectre came together!
