EON Productions, Metro Goldwyn Mayer Studios (MGM) and Universal Pictures International have announced that Billie Eilish will sing the theme song for the next James Bond film.
Entitled No Time To Die, the film will be the 25th in the long-running series. It will come out on April 2 internationally and on April 10 in the United States.
The 18-year-old Grammy-nominated singer co-wrote the song with her brother FINNEAS, who has also received Grammy nominations. Eilish is said to be the youngest person to write and record a theme song for a James Bond movie.
Darkroom/Interscope Records will further release the song independently the film.
Eilish issued a statement in regards to the production, and so did many those involved in it.
She said, “It feels crazy to be a part this in every way. To be able to score the theme song to a film that is part such a legendary series is a huge honor. James Bond is the coolest film franchise ever to exist. I’m still in shock.”
Her brother FINNEAS added, “Writing the theme song for a Bond film is something we’ve been dreaming about doing our entire lives. There is no more iconic pairing music and cinema than the likes Goldfinger and Live And Let Die. We feel so so lucky to play a small role in such a legendary franchise, long live 007.”
Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, who are the producers No Time To Die, said, “We are excited to announce that Billie and FINNEAS have written an incredibly powerful and moving song for No Time To Die, which has been impeccably crafted to work within the emotional story the film.”
Eilish made news last month when she Jimmy Kimmel that she never heard Van Halen, Run DMC and Huey Lewis.
