The song was written specially for Turner by Bono and the Edge of U2 when they learned that she had been invited to sing the theme to the upcoming Bond movie, and the track was produced and mixed by British producer/remixer/composer Nellee Hooper, best known for his work with Massive Attack, Madonna, U2 and Björk. The track reached #10 on the UK Singles Chart and became a Top 5 hit in most other European countries.
"GoldenEye" was first released on the original motion picture soundtrack and the following year it was included on Turner's album Wildest Dreams. The song has been covered by Nicole Scherzinger for the 2010 GoldenEye 007 video game.
Music & Media wrote about the song: "A perfect candidate for the soundtrack of 007's latest adventure, Tina Turner and her raw R&B power easily fit in the Shirley Bassey tradition. Composers Bono and The Edge stayed close to the traditional James Bond sound, even the Club Edit is fairly conventional."
