In an interesting but not so surprising move, Billie Eilish has been named as the creator and singer of the next James Bond theme song – to be featured on the film No Time To Die.
Both the 18-year-old singer and longtime movie franchise took to twitter this week to unveil the news, with the official 007 note confirming that she will be aided in writing the track by her brother, Finneas, and the fact that the LA native is now the youngest artist to perform a James Bond theme song – beating out Sam Smith, who was just 23 when he wrote the theme for 2015’s Spectre, “Writing’s on the Wall.”
“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 honor,” Eilish said in a statement. “James Bond is the coolest film franchise ever to exist. I’m still in shock”. Her brother chimed in to add that, “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.”
Stay tuned for more regarding the theme song for No Time To Die, coming out on April 10th, 2020.
