LISTEN: Billie Eilish Drops New James Bond Theme “No Time to Die”
Shook, not stirred.
The title track from the forthcoming James Bond flick No Time to Die has arrived, courtesy of Billie Eilish. The film, which is out April 10, will be the twenty-fifth in the franchise.
Billie co-wrote the piano-drenched theme tune with her brother Finneas. Her ethereal, muted style might seem an unexpected choice for the enormity of a 007 movie, but she eventually crescendos into an orchestral flourish: “Fool me once, fool me twice,” she wails on the chorus. “You’ll never see me cry, there’s just no time to die.”
At eighteen years old, Eilish is now the youngest person to have written a Bond theme. “It feels crazy to be a part of this in every way,” she said in a press statement. “To be able to score the theme song to a film that is part of such a legendary series is a huge honor. James Bond is the coolest film franchise ever to exist. I’m still in shock.”
