It’s a little early for Oscar season, but Adele collaborator Ryan Tedder not only hopes that the British singer will receive an Oscar nod for her theme song to the forthcoming James Bond film ‘Skyfall,’ but he insists the cut is the “best Bond song in my lifetime.”

Tedder, the One Republic singer who co-wrote a pair of tunes on Adele’s ’21’ album and produced one, posted a tweet revealing that Adele had teamed up with ’21’ co-writer and producer Paul Epworth on the new Bond theme song, and he was quite effusive in his praise for the track.

“I’ve heard it,” he wrote in the tweet, which reports has since been removed. “Best bond song in my lifetime. Hands down- hats off once again to Paul Epworth and Adele. hope they win Oscar.”

Adele’s participation in the Bond film was confirmed a few weeks ago, and ‘Let the Sky Fall’ has recently been announced as the name of the song. Showbiz 411 reports that the track is an “ominous, dramatic ballad” containing “lots of gorgeous horn flourishes” and featuring the chorus, “Let the sky fall/ Let it crumble/ We still stand tall/ And face it all/ Together.”

The tune is expected to premiere online via social media on Oct. 4 or 5, adds Showbiz 411 in another post, which offers additional lyrics from the song.
