Billie Eilish has been announced as the artist chosen to record the next James Bond theme. Eilish and her brother Finneas O’Connell have penned the title track for the 25th Bond film, ‘No Time To Die’.
The film’s producers Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli say in a statement: “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”.
Eilish adds: “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”.
O’Connell goes on: “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”.
At eighteen, Eilish is the youngest ever Bond theme writer and performer. No release date for the track has yet been announced, but the film is set for release in the UK on 2 Apr.
