LONDON — The choice was shrouded in mystery and denials, but British singing sensation Sam Smith has surfaced as the theme song singer for the new James Bond film, “Spectre.”

He had denied the rumors, but came clean Tuesday, tweeting that taking part in the Bond film was “one of the highlights of my career.”

The 23-year-old who has shot to stardom said he is excited to be part of the film.

Only last week, Smith had denied any part in the new 007 caper, which opens in October starring Daniel Craig as the durable secret agent first played by Sean Connery.
