WITHIN TEMPTATION's Cover Version Of ADELE's 'Skyfall' Available For Streaming

WITHIN TEMPTATION's cover version of "Skyfall", ADELE's official theme song to the James Bond film of the same name, can be streamed in the YouTube clip below.

WITHIN TEMPTATON has been revealing a unique cover every week on Q-Music in anticipation of the Dutch symphonic metal band's 15th-anniversary concert, which took place on November 13 at Sportpaleis in Antwerp, Belgium. The group stated, "We figured this would be a great occasion to do something special for [the fans]. It will be a musical adventure as we are covering songs that are very close to us but also songs that are not close to us at all."

The following tracks have already been released:

* Paradise (COLDPLAY)
* Grenade (BRUNO MARS)
* Somebody That I Used To Know (GOTYE)
* Behind Blue Eyes (THE WHO)
* Summertime Sadness (LANA DEL REY)
* Apologize (ONE REPUBLIC)
* Don't You Worry Child (SWEDISH HOUSE MAFIA)
* Little Lion Man (MUMFORD & SONS)
* Skyfall (ADELE)
* Radioactive (IMAGINE DRAGONS)

WITHIN TEMPTATION's fifth studio album, "The Unforgiving", sold around 12,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 50 on The Billboard 200 chart. Released on March 29, 2011 the CD was produced by Daniel Gibson and is based on a comic book story written by script writer Steven O'Connell (BloodRayne, Dark 48). The band asked comic artist Romano Molenaar (Witchblade, Darkness, X-Men) to draw the characters and scenery of "The Unforgiving", which was made available via Sony Music in Continental Europe and Roadrunner Records in the U.S., U.K. and Ireland, Japan and Australia.

WITHIN TEMPTATION guitarist Robert Westerholt last year announced that he would step down from touring duties in order to focus on taking care of the three children he has with the band's lead singer, Sharon den Adel. His replacement on stage is Stefan Helleblad, who has been working with the band behind the scenes for a few years.
