Billie Eilish has been named as the artist behind the theme for the upcoming James Bond film No Time To Die. Now, the teenage singer can add another notch to her already marked-up belt: she's going to be the singer of the newest James Bond 007 theme song.

Billie co-wrote the song with her older brother Finneas O'Connell.

ORIGINAL STORY: Oscar-winning composer Hans Zimmer has officially taken over the reins on the next James Bond pic, No Time To Die, replacing Dan Romer.

The movie hits theaters April 10.

Then, in the wee hours of Tuesday, Eilish posted a series of photos of actresses who have appeared in Bond films - including Eva Green, Hallie Berry and Lea Seydoux - on her Instagram story. "As much as I like Billie I'm quite disappointed in this".

"It feels insane to be a part of this in every way", Grammy nominee Eilish said in a statement.

This season was one to remember for Burrow as he broke multiple touchdown records while also winning the Heisman. Burrow completed 31 of 49 attempts for 463 yards.

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

She follows in the footsteps of artists including Adele and Sam Smith to record a Bond theme. Quantum of Solace has the very unique pair of Jack White and Alicia Keys performing Another Way to Die. Casino Royale's "You Know My Name" by the late Chris Cornell was basically a rock song.

Billie Eilish rocketed to superstardom in 2019.

"Even a few Eilish fans - like user @Rosaaereves - admitted doubts about her suitability for No Time to Die: "[The theme] better not be one of her energetic bops like Bad Guy or some because it really doesn't fit the franchise.

'No Time To Die' is in cinemas globally from 2 April 2020. Emmy Award-winning director Cary Joji Fukunaga helmed the film, which features recent Golden Globe victor Phoebe Waller-Bridge as a co-writer.

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.
