BILLIE Eilish will sing the theme song for the 25th James Bond film, No Time To Die, it has been confirmed by EON Productions, Metro Goldwyn Mayer Studios (MGM), and Universal Pictures.

The 18-year-old multi-platinum selling and Grammy® Award nominated Eilish has written the title song with her elder brother, fellow multi Grammy® Award nominated Finneas. Billie 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, the producers of the film.

Eilish commented: “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.”

The film’s director, Cary Joji Fukunaga, commented: “There are a chosen few who record a Bond theme. I am a huge fan of Billie and Finneas. Their creative integrity and talent are second to none and I cannot wait for audiences to hear what they’ve brought – a fresh new perspective whose vocals will echo for generations to come.”

Billie Eilish released her debut album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? in March 2019. The Album Of The Year nominated full-length debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in the US as well as 17 additional countries around the world upon release.

The LP was the highest selling debut album of 2019 and biggest North American debut of the decade (male, female or group), hitting No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album charts for an additional two non-consecutive weeks since its release.

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.

The title song will be released on Darkroom/Interscope Records.

No Time To Die is in cinemas globally from April 2, 2020 in the U.K. through Universal Pictures International and in the US on April 10, from MGM via their United Artists Releasing banner.
