Billie Eilish is on top of the world right now and she's now joining a long list of legends thanks to her brand new song.
Billie finally released her highly-anticipated James Bond theme song for No Time to Die. Since the third James Bond film, Goldfinger, each film has a special title track written and performed by a top artist. Recently, Adele and Sam Smith have taken the reigns and now the baton has been passed to Billie for No Time to Die.
While some fans were surprised Billie was chosen for the song, she clearly pushed herself to create a track that is unlike anything they have heard from her before. The song is a strong ballad talking about Bond's betrayal as he sets off on a new adventure. The new theme also serves as a goodbye to Daniel Craig who will stepping away from the role at the end of this film.
"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 honor," Billie said in a statement. "James Bond is the coolest film franchise ever to exist. I’m still in shock."
Billie's theme, "No Time to Die", has all the makings of a Bond song including an iconic string section that brings a bigger dramatic flair to the track. The song also ends on a play of the iconic guitar riff heard in the original "James Bond Theme" that is still used today.
The song also continues Billie's long-time collaboration with her brother, Finneas, who also serves as co-writer and co-producer on the track. They're joined by legendary producer Stephen Lipson, guitarist Johnny Marr, and orchestrators Hans Zimmer and Matt Dunkley.
Fans who are hoping to hear her sing the song live won't have to wait too long. She'll be performing the track for the first time at The Brit Awards in London on February 18 along with Hans Zimmer and Johnny Marr.
