Billie Eilish has been dropping some very strong hints already but now it's been officially confirmed. The 18-year-old singer will perform the title track on upcoming Bond flick 'No Time to Die'.
We reported earlier today that Billie had been teasing fans with a picture of iconic Bond girls on her Instagram stories. Now she has confirmed it with a post saying: “No Time To Die” JAMES BOND. AND I AM SINGING THE THEME SONG. WHAAT."
The 18-year-old multi-platinum selling and Grammy-nominated Billie Eilish has written the title song with her elder brother; fellow multi Grammy-Award nominated Finneas.
Billie Eilish has now set the record as the youngest artist in history to write and record a James Bond theme song.
In a statement, Eilish said, "It feels crazy to be a part of this in every way. To be able to score the theme song to a film that is part of such a legendary series is a huge honour. James Bond is the coolest film franchise ever to exist. I’m still in shock."
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 of music and cinema than the likes of Goldfinger and Live And Let Die. We feel so so lucky to play a small role in such a legendary franchise, long live 007."
Director Cary Joji Fukunaga said, "There are a chosen few who record a Bond theme. I am a huge fan of Billie and Finneas. Their creative integrity and talent are second to none and I cannot wait for audiences to hear what they’ve brought – a fresh new perspective whose vocals will echo for generations to come."
