As MI6 exclusively teased two days ago, American singer-songwriter Billie Eilish will become the latest artist to join the pantheon of James Bond title song performers. The official press release confirmed: "EON Productions, Metro Goldwyn Mayer Studios (MGM), and Universal Pictures International today announced that Billie Eilish will sing the theme song for the 25th James Bond film, No Time To Die. The song will be released on Darkroom/Interscope Records.
"The 18-year-old 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”. FINNEAS adds, “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.”
“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,” said Cary Joji Fukunaga
Eilish started to tease her social media following earlier in the day by posting photos of iconic Bond girls.
