Billie Eilish to sing the new James Bond theme song

She’s the youngest singer to record a theme song for the franchise.

Billie Eilish has been tapped to write and perform the new James Bond theme song for the franchise’s forthcoming film, No Time to Die.

The as-yet-untitled track, which was written by the singer alongside her brother and musical collaborator Finneas, according to the official James Bond Twitter account, will make Eilish the youngest singer to record a Bond theme song. “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.”

“Writing the theme song for a Bond film is something we’ve been dreaming about doing our entire lives,” Finneas added. “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.” A release date for Eilish’s James Bond theme song has not been confirmed.

Past Bond theme songs include Sam Smith’s 2015 contribution “Writing’s on the Wall” and Adele’s 2012 hit “Skyfall.” No Time to Die will be the final James Bond film to star Daniel Craig as the titular character. It arrives in cinemas on April 10.
