Billie Eilish’s reign just won’t let up. After wowing fans with her debut album ‘When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?’, scoring Grammy nominations while doing so, the 17-year-old pop sensation has confirmed that she has written and will perform the next James Bond anthem – a massive honour for any artist.
Billie has teamed up with her brother and musical collaborator Finneas O’Connell to create an “incredibly powerful and moving song” for the milestone film.
“We are excited to announce that Billie and FINNEAS have written an incredibly powerful and moving song for No Time To Die, which has been impeccably crafted to work within the emotional story of the film,” No Time To Die producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli said in a press release.
Excited by the honour of singing the theme song for the 25th James Bond film, Eilish says, “It feels crazy to be a part of this in every way. To be able to score the theme song to a film that is part of such a legendary series is a huge honour. James Bond is the coolest film franchise ever to exist. I’m still in shock.”
Finneas added, “Writing the theme song for a Bond film is something we’ve been dreaming about doing our entire lives. 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.”
Previous musicians who have had the honour of recording a James Bond theme song includes Adele, Madonna, Sam Smith, Carly Simon, Tina Turner, Jack White and Alicia Keys.
‘No Time To Die’ will premiere on 10 April 2020.
