American teen pop sensation Billie Eilish, fresh off her big Grammy Awards victory and an Oscar night performance, has released her much-anticipated official theme song to the forthcoming James Bond film "No Time to Die".

Any proper James Bond song is bound to convey a sense of action, danger, drama and life-and-death intrigue, especially as the Daniel Craig-era Bond has leaned more heavily on the character's accumulated melancholy.

Many were impressed with how the young singer handled the song's high notes, which is something of a break from her normal style. Now, Billie Eilish has finally debuted her No Time To Die song.

"The music of Bond has always been iconic and I've already witnessed Hans adding his touch of genius to the Bond legacy". Eilish, the youngest artist ever to write and record a Bond them, will perform the song for the first time at the Brit Awards in London on February 18.

"It feels insane to be a part of this in every way", Eilish said. Eilish wrote and recorded most of her debut studio album "When We Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?" with her brother, Finneas, 22, in the small bedroom of their Los Angeles home.

A total of 217 medical teams with 25,633 medical workers had been sent to Hubei to help combat the COVID-19 as of Friday. It's not the first time these markets have bred a new disease, and experts said it probably wouldn't be the last.

Previous year she dropped a number one album entitled "When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?", led the hot songs chart with her single "Bad Guy" and played a set on a prime stage at the Coachella music festival.

She clarified that the song's lyrics weren't supposed to be insulting, saying: "I tried so hard to not make it in any way offensive. I'm still in shock". "She just released one of the best Bond songs of all time".

In the event, Eilish maintained the Bond connection with a haunting version of "Live And Let Die" songwriter Paul McCartney's "Yesterday", embedded below for your listening pleasure. You know, the standard Bond fare.

"We've written songs that have never come out that are, like, 'Oh, this sounds like Bond, like, this would be dope, like, it would never happen, whatever.' And then this offer came up and we were like, ahhhh!".
