Sam Smith may have just revealed that he will be performing the theme song for the upcoming James Bond movie, Spectre. The singer posted a photo to Twitter and Instagram on Monday featuring the same octopus logo that plays a major part in the upcoming Bond installment, which hits theaters in November. See photo below!

The British singer shared a black and white photo of a ring on his hand with the insignia of an octopus, the same ring worn by members of SPECTRE, the evil organization at the center of the upcoming Bond film. The logo has been featured on teaser posters for the film and in other marketing materials. Smith did not include a caption.

Many are speculating that the ring is a major clue that the “Stay With Me” crooner will be behind the next Bond theme. The spy movies are known for their iconic theme songs, which are played during the opening credit sequences, and it’s a major honor for an artist to be chosen as the lead vocalist on the track. In fact, Adele won an Oscar and Golden Globe for her performance of “Skyfall,” the theme song to the 2012 Bond movie of the same name.

Past musicians to have had the distinction of taking on a Bond theme include Paul McCartney, Madonna, Bono, Alicia Keys, Jack White, Sheryl Crow, Carly Simon, Tom Jones, Nancy Sinatra, and Duran Duran, among many others. Producers have not commented one way or another about Smith’s posts, but take a look at his octopus ring photo below, and tell us if you think it’s a sign that the singer will be performing the Spectre theme song.
