Thomas Newman composed the score for the film Skyfall, which features Adele's song of the same name. While the soundtrack itself does not feature the film's theme song by Adele, the song "Komodo Dragon", composed by Newman, is featured on it. The song contains an instrumental that interpolates "Skyfall" into it, therefore making Adele, Paul Epworth, and J.A.C. Redford co-writers of the track.
Newman's involvement in the film's score led to some of the first reports that Adele would be performing the song "Skyfall" after she was seen going into the same studio Newman was in to work on the track.
