The theme song for Skyfall was performed by English singer Adele and won the Academy Award for Best Original Song, making Skyfall the first Bond film since For Your Eyes Only to be nominated for an Oscar, and the first to win since Thunderball won for Best Visual Effects.

Mendes brought regular collaborator Thomas Newman on board to compose the film's score. Newman replaced regular series composer David Arnold, who had previously scored every Bond film since 1997's Tomorrow Never Dies.
