The song, “Another Way To Die,” is the first duet in Bond soundtrack history, the studio said in a statement. White wrote and produced the song, and also played drums. The soundtrack to the movie will be released October 28 by Keys’ J Records label.

“Quantum of Solace,” starring Daniel Craig and directed by Marc Forster, will be released in North American theaters on November 7. Amy Winehouse and Leona Lewis had previously been rumored as the vocalists for the latest Bond theme.

The theme for the previous Bond film, 2006’s “Casino Royale,” was sung and co-written by former Soundgarden/Audioslave vocalist Chris Cornell.
