The 'No Time To Die' official soundtrack has broken UK chart records.
It debuted this week at #7 in the overall Official UK Album Charts which is a record high for a James Bond release and also for composer Hans Zimmer.
In the more specific 'Classical Music' UK chart, it scored #1.
Zimmer said: “It's incredible to think that we effectively launched this album at the Brits in 2019! It feels fantastic that the movie and its music are finally receiving such a rapturous and record-breaking reception. If you're going to make chart history, you might as well do it with James Bond! I'm delighted”
Chief Executive of Official Charts Company, Martin Talbot said: “The triumphant return of Bond, James Bond, this autumn has been a huge fillip for the nation post-lockdown and the incredible success of the soundtrack album has emphasised quite how much we love a Bond score. The involvement this time of Billie Eilish and Johnny Marr alongside Hans Zimmer has broadened the audience for this OST more than ever before. We have had to wait, but it was certainly well worth waiting for.”
Decca Records Co-Managing Directors Laura Monks & Tom Lewis added: “We are thrilled to simultaneously make chart history for James Bond and Hans Zimmer, both legends in their own right. We couldn't be prouder of the whole Decca team and of the increasingly strong bond (sorry!) that we have built with our partners at EON and MGM.”
