Billie Eilish to sing theme song for 25th James Bond film

Share

Billie Eilish will co-write and perform the title song of the next James Bond film, No Time to Die.

If true, the choice of Eilish would be a dramatic change of direction for the legendary franchise's long history of theme-song performers, which have progressed from Shirley Bassey to Paul McCartney and Duran Duran over the decades. As she has done with a number of her hits to date, Eilish wrote the number with her older brother, songwriter and producer Finneas. It has been rumored for some time that the Grammy nominee would become the latest artist to lend her talents to the James Bond franchise.

The news was confirmed by Bond producers on Tuesday morning with the "Bad Guy" singer reacting to the news. It was speculated over the weekend that Beyonce was doing the James Bond theme song.

The Grammy-nominated music star said: "It feels insane to be a part of this in every way". Audiences will be able to check out his farewell - and Billie's theme song - when the latest Bond film is released in cinemas in April.

NWS said more than 18 million people in Louisiana , Arkansas, Texas and Oklahoma remained at risk of tornadoes and flooding rains. Texas Governor, Greg Abbott, claimed helicopters, medical and rescue teams had been placed on standby in case they are needed.

According to a press release, "No Time To Die" was written and produced by Eilish's brother, Finneas.

Today, rumors are also swirling that American singer Billie Eilish could be recording the film's official theme. That puts her in some pretty impressive company, as Sam Smith, Adele, and a duet between Jack White and Alicia Keys all contributed to previous installments of the series. The song will follow Bond tradition in being named after the title of the film.

At the end of the month, Eilish will go head-to-head against some of the biggest names in the modern music industry at the 2020 Grammys as she's been nominated for six individual awards - her first counts of recognition from the Recording Academy ever.

As iconic as his Aston Martin, his taste for dry martinis, and his penchant for short-lived sexual relationships is James Bond's proclivity to surround himself with some pretty memorable music.
