We were recently treated to Adele’s swell theme song for director Sam Mendes’ upcoming James Bond film Skyfall, but there’s another musical aspect to the pic that plays a fairly important role: the score.  David Arnold composed the score for every Bond film since 1997’s Tomorrow Never Dies, but Mendes made a change and brought in his longtime collaborator Thomas Newman to do the music for Skyfall.  In addition to scoring all of Mendes’ films except Away We Go, Newman is responsible for such memorable scores as Wall-E, Angels in America, and The Shawshank Redemption.

A nearly 7-minute preview of Newman’s Skyfall score has now landed online, giving us a taste of what’s in store for the excellent-looking new Bond film.  The score sounds suitably Bond-esque, and I look forward to hearing Newman’s work in full when the film opens on November 9th.  Hit the jump to take a listen.

Here’s the preview via Film Music Reporter and The Playlist, followed by a mildly spoilery tracklisting.
