“Bad Guy” singer Billie Eilish has written and recorded the theme song for the new James Bond film, No Time To Die.
Eilish wrote the song with her brother, Finneas O’Connell, who also collaborated with Eilish on her Grammy-nominated debut album “When We Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?” last year.
The 18-year-old pop star is the youngest person to ever write and record a song for the 007 franchise. We’ve yet to see if she will follow in the footsteps of Adele and Sam Smith, who both won Oscars for their James Bond theme songs, “Skyfall” and “Writing’s On The Wall”.
The singer commented: “James Bond is the coolest film franchise ever to exist. I’m still in shock.” She said it felt “crazy” to be a part of and she deemed the project “a huge honour”.
Her brother Finneas expressed similar sentiments. “Writing the theme song for a Bond film is something we’ve been dreaming about doing our entire lives,” he said.
“There is no more iconic pairing of music and cinema than the likes of Goldfinger and Live And Let Die. We feel so so lucky to play a small role in such a legendary franchise. Long live 007.”
The titular song for No Time To Die should be released in early March, around a month before the premiere of the film, which will be April 3.
