Singer Billie Eilish has released the theme song for the new James Bond film, making her the youngest artist to be chosen to record a theme song from the world’s most famous spy movie. The 18-year-old artist wrote the song with her brother, Finneas.
“No Time to Die” is Daniel Craig’s fifth, and possibly last film playing the secret agent. Directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga ("True Detective") and co-written by Phoebe Waller-Bridge ("Fleabag"), the film is scheduled to premiere in theaters on April 2020.
Eilish told Billy Porter on the Oscars red carpet just last weekend that performing a James Bond theme song has been a “life goal” of hers. She joins the ranks of stars such as Sam Smith and Adele to sing the James Bond theme.
The announcement that Eilish would sing the new James Bond theme came out last month, on a tweet by the film’s official Twitter account.
This song comes after the pop sensation’s monumental win at the Grammy’s just last month, where she swept up nearly every category in which she was nominated for, which includes best new artist, best song, best record, best album, and best pop vocal album.
“No Time to Die” stars Daniel Craig, Rami Malek, Léa Seydoux, Lashana Lynch, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, Billy Magnussen, Ana de Armas, Rory Kinnear, David Dencik, Dali Benssalah with Jeffrey Wright and Ralph Fiennes.
