One of the most coveted positions over the decades is the chance to make the title song of any James Bond film. The latest to join the long list of superstar musicians to write and sing the title track for ‘No Time To Die’ is the 18-year-old Billie Eilish.
The multi-platinum selling and GRAMMY® Award-nominated Billie Eilish has written the title song with her elder brother; fellow multi GRAMMY® Award-nominated FINNEAS. Billie Eilish is the youngest artist in history to write and record a James Bond theme song.
“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,” said Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli.
Eilish said, “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”.
In ‘No Time To Die’, Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.
Cary Joji Fukunaga is at the helm of the 25th outing for the suave British spy which is written by Neal Purvis & Robert Wade (Spectre, Skyfall), Cary Joji Fukunaga, Scott Z. Burns (Contagion, The Bourne Ultimatum) and Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Killing Eve, Fleabag).
