Billie Eilish Drops New James Bond Musical Theme ‘No Time To Die’
Posted on February 22 2020
Eilish, who turned 18 in December, wrote and recorded the song with her brother and musical partner, Finneas O'Connell, while movie soundtrack legend Hans Zimmer did the orchestral arrangements and former Smith member Johnny Marr played guitar.
The music prodige performed the new song alongside an orchestra, Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr and composer Zimmer at Tuesday's Brit Awards.
Eilish has six Grammys, 13 platinum singles and one of the biggest debut albums in recent memory. It's safe to say she has already conquered the music world and now film will be another notch under her musical belt.
Opening in theaters April 10th, “No Time to Die” finds Bond living in Jamaica having left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life. 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.
Eilish is the youngest artist to contribute a theme to the long-running film series. She joins a list of musical icons including Paul McCartney, Madonna, Sheryl Crow, Chris Cornell, Tom Jones, Adele and Sam Smith.
Billie is set to hit the road on a world arena tour which sold out within an hour of tickets going on sale. It kicks off on March 9.
