White Stripes frontman Jack White has reportedly spoken out against the use of his Bond theme duet with Alicia Keys on a Coca Cola television advert.

An instrumental version of Another Way To Die, from new Bond film Quantum of Solace, is featured in a 007-themed advert for the Coke Zero drink.

He reportedly says in a statement he is "disappointed" the song is being heard for the first time on an advert.

He wrote the song for the film, "not for Coca Cola", the statement adds.

"Any other use of the song is based on decisions made by others, not by Jack White," NME.com quoted the statement as saying.

Last month, White said he had wanted to collaborate with R&B star Keys for "a couple of years".

White, who also performs with The Raconteurs, said: "Alicia put some electric energy into her breath that cemented itself into the magnetic tape - very inspiring to watch."

He said the the collaboration "gave me a new voice and I wasn't myself any more".

Quantum of Solace will receive its world premiere on 29 October in London, two days before its UK opening.

Prince William and Prince Harry will attend the screening.

It is due to hit the big screen in the US on 14 November.
