James Bond is the coolest film franchise ever to exist.

Eilish will debut the new song live at the Brit Awards on February 18, joined by Marr and Zimmer as special guests.

No Time To Die has proved to be a hit with both fans and critics, while Bond music historian Jon Burlingame said he would be surprised if the song did not earn Eilish an Oscar nomination next year.

Friendly reminder that Billie Eilish, at age 18, is the youngest person to ever record the theme song for a Bond film.

The next James Bond theme is here, and yes it's being performed by someone who has fewer years alive than there are Bond films. "I'm still in shock", Eilish said in a statement.

Matt Fowler is a writer for IGN and a member of the Television Critics Association.

In the meantime, you can buy, download and stream the track through all of the normal services: Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, Google Play, etc.

Mesmerising song by Billie Eilish. Following the traditions of previous Bond theme tracks like Adele's "Skyfall" and Paul McCartney's "Live and Let Die", the 18-year-old leaves her mark on the franchise with a breathtaking ballad about learning from the mistakes of one's past.

The track was co-written and produced by her brother Finneas O'Connell.

The film, which is set for an April 2020 release, will mark Daniel Craig's fifth time playing the iconic spy. "Do you expect me to talk?"

Eilish just performed a cover of The Beatles' "Yesterday" during the Oscars In Memoriam segment on Sunday, which you can be listening to here.

The movie sees Bond coaxed out of retirement by Central Intelligence Agency chum Felix Leiter to help in the search for a missing scientist. They have the task of rescuing a kidnapped scientist, but the mission turns out to be much more unsafe than expected, since a mysterious villain armed with risky new technology is thrown into the mix, played by Rami Malek.

No Time To Die will be the fifth installment with Daniel Craig as 007, Cary Fukunaga directs the movie with a contribution to the script from Fleabag's Golden Globe victor Phoebe Waller-Bridge. The cast also includes Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw, Lea Seydoux, Rory Kinnear, Ana de Armas, Lashana Lynch, Billy Magnussen, David Dencik and Dali Benssalah.

The teenage pop star dropped her theme tune - "No Time To Die" - on Friday, getting 2.2 million views in just six hours!
