Billie Eilish Will Perform The Theme For The New James Bond Film
Billish Eilish was announced as the vocalist for the newest entry in the Bond series, No Time to Die. The official James Bond Twitter account reported the news on Tuesday.
Billie Eilish and her brother, Finneas, have reportedly already written the track. It will feature in No Time to Die, which will see Daniel Craig return as “007” for the fifth and final time. Rami Malek will appear in the film as the latest Bond villain. The film also welcomes True Detective director-producer Cary Joji Fukunaga in his first directorial entry in the series.
Billie Eilish: the newest in a line of impressive 007 singers
This is an exciting opportunity for one of the biggest young stars in the pop music world. Eilish joins the list of big name pop artists to work with the Bond franchise. Sam Smith received the honour for 2015’s Spectre, while Adele sang “Skyfall” for the film of the same title in 2012.
A new accomplishment for a Bond theme artist
At just 18 years old, Billie Eilish is the youngest artist in the history of the franchise to record a "Bond" theme. We’ll see if she can continue the standard set by Adele and Sam Smith, who both won the Academy Award for Best Original Song with their theme songs. No Time to Die is scheduled to hit theatres this April.
