Nobody's asked Ed Sheeran to write a James Bond theme yet, but the singer has one up his sleeve just in case. Ed revealed on RTÉ One's The Late Late Show that he's had a song in mind for the franchise "for about three years". It may seem like he's tempting fate, but the job does often go to British singer-songwriters: Adele and Sam Smith penned the last two Bond themes. Given the success Ed is currently enjoying worldwide, he'd be an obvious choice for the next film. However, last we heard, Ed's "Perfect" pal Beyoncé was rumoured to already have the job.
Whether or not Ed does get to bring his Bond dreams to light, it's apparently not the first time he's had a song ready to go in case a dream scenario presents itself. In the clip, he goes on to explain that he was also well-prepared when he was asked to collaborate with Eminem on a track for the rapper's new album "Revival".
