If you call up the advertisement, the music plays continuously. For now, it’s impossible to determine if this is actually from the 23rd James Bond film or something worked up for the ad.

There’s certainly more interest than normal given Newman is the first new 007 composer in 15 years, has a long list of credits and comes from a dynasty of movie composers. He was brought into work on Skyfall because he has worked on other movies directed by Sam Mendes.
