Billie Eilish releases new James Bond theme ‘No Time to Die’

Breakout star Billie Eilish is now officially a Bond girl — sort of.

The 18-year-old released the official theme song for the upcoming blockbuster “No Time to Die” on Thursday, the youngest artist to ever write a song for the 007 franchise.

The song has already been viewed more than 288,000 times on YouTube.

The artist joins other superstars who’ve penned songs for the Daniel Craig-starring James Bond films, including Chris Cornell (“You Know My Name” for “Casino Royale”), Adele (“Skyfall”), Jack White and Alicia Keys (“Another Way to Die” for “Quantum of Solace”), and Sam Smith (“Writing’s on the Wall” for “Spectre”).

Perhaps Eilish — who just won five Grammy Awards — will have a chance to nab her first Oscar next year, as both Adele, 31, and Smith, 27, won for their additions to the Bond series.

Eilish wrote the song with her 22-year-old brother and musical collaborator Finneas O’Connell, with orchestral arrangements by renowned composer and Oscar winner Hans Zimmer and British conductor Matt Dunkley. The Smiths legend Johnny Marr plays guitar on the track.

“It feels crazy to be a part of this in every way,” Eilish said in a press release. “To be able to score the theme song to a film that is part of such a legendary series is a huge honor.”

Eilish — fresh off her performance at the 2020 Oscars — will sing the song live for the first time at the Brit Awards in London on Feb. 18.

“No Time to Die” is set to hit theaters in April.
