Craig again played 007 in this sequel to Casino Royale as Bond travels the world searching for those responsible for his lover's murder. British soul singer Amy Winehouse was initially approached to co-write and perform the title song, and while composer David Arnold and Winehouse producer Mark Ronson worked on song ideas, Winehouse's troubled personal life precluded any fruitful outcome. Jack White of the White Stripes rock band came in, wrote a song and enlisted Alicia Keys to duet with him on “Another Way to Die”. The song was widely criticized as among the least memorable Bond song ever. Arnold penned the score, again orchestrated and conducted by Nicholas Dodd. A later Arnold-Black song, “No Good About Goodbye”, which takes off on ideas initially conceived during the Winehouse period, was sung by Shirley Bassey on an Arnold-produced album.
