London: Singer Ed Sheeran says he would love to record the 'James Bond' theme but feels his voice will not suit the song.

The 23-year-old singer said he is hopeful of getting ready to sing for the 'Bond' film in another 10 years, reported Contactmusic.

"I'd love to do a James Bond song, but can you imagine it? I just wasn't born with the James Bond voice. You never know - I'm not ruling it out. Maybe in ten years time..." he said.

Sheeran, whose single 'I See Fire' featured in the soundtrack of film 'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug', suggested that the recording for 24th 'James Bond' film 'Spectre' should be given to Sam Smith.

"Anyone from Sam to Paloma Faith - anyone who does the retro thing really, really well should do it. I think the James Bond theme tune should be ballsy. I feel like if I was going to do it, it would sound a bit wet. The Hobbit song was perfect for me to do, because it's quite folky and rootsy. A hairy short man should be singing a song about that!" he said.
