James Bond Singer’s Hits Getting Remixed

A handful of Shirley Bassey’s hits are getting a club-conscious makeover on Diamonds Are Forever — The Remix Album, which features some of the singer’s biggest hits remixed by Groove Armada, Propellerheads and other dance acts.

The Welsh pop-icon’s over-the-top emoting and powerful voice are best known from the theme songs to the James Bond movies “Diamonds Are Forever” and “Goldfinger.” Propellerheads, who teamed with Bassey on their 1998 single “History Repeating,” give “Goldfinger” the remix treatment, while Kurtis Mantronik handles “Diamonds Are Forever.”
The 63-year-old Bassey had a string of U.K. pop hits in the 1960s, including “Reach for the Stars/Climb Every Mountain” and “Big Spender.” In 1987, she teamed up with Swiss dance music act Yello for the single “The Rhythm Divine.”
Also appearing on the 10-track album, due February 13, are DJ Spinna, Kenny Dope and Nightmares on Wax, according to the album’s label, Nettwerk Records.
