Skyfall - Out Now in iTunes!
If you live in the UK click here to be taken to Skyfall on iTunes, for all other territories simply search for Paul Usher on iTunes and select 'Skyfall'.
My James Bond theme named 'Skyfall' [Written, arranged, produced & performed by Paul Usher] is now available on the Music and Videos pages respectively. It's also coming soon to iTunes. I worked so hard on the orchestration, I'm really proud of it. It purposely harks back to classic Bond themes with luscious John Barry-esqe strings and brass. I hope you all love it!
The PUSH sound is coming to Portugal, Greece, Croatia & Venice this summer! Follow Paul on twitter @PaulUsher to get the latest real-time updates!
