Billie Eilish to record new 'James Bond' film theme

Billie Eilish fans are convinced she's linked to the James Bond theme tune.

Billie Eilish has written and will perform the theme song for the 25th James Bond film No Time To Die, making the 18-year-old the youngest person to record a Bond theme. Originally she was somewhat more coy with a caption that read "Guess what I'm doing". And that's pretty much all the announcement we need to have this confirmed.

Having said that, her lyrics are often dark and spooky, and the Bond film's title, "No Time to Die", isn't worlds away from Eilish song titles like "Bury a Friend" or "Six Feet Under". The pair worked together exclusively on her chart-topping debut album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?

The film's producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G Wilson described Eilish's song as "impeccably crafted to work within the emotional story of the film". The album, which topped many end of year polls, has gone to Number One in 18 countries around the world upon release.

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.

If that's not enough of a résumé for you, Eilish also broke the record for most simultaneously charting Hot 100 songs by a female artist.

No Time to Die arrives in theaters this spring on April 10, 2020.
