The former frontman of bands such as Audioslave and Soundgarden was chosen by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Inc. and Sony Pictures Entertainment, along with producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, to create the new sound for the new Bond, Columbia Pictures said in a news release.
"I've always loved Chris' work, both as a writer and as an artist, and had hoped someday to find the right film to inspire him," said Columbia executive Lia Vollack. "His music is both soulful and tough. It was the perfect complement to Daniel Craig and 'Casino Royale.'"
