Billie Eilish records the new James Bond theme

Indie-pop sensation Billie Eilish has recorded the title track for the latest James Bond film, No Time To Die.

The 18-year-old US singer becomes the youngest artist in history to write and record a theme for the franchise.

“It feels crazy to be a part of this in every way,” said the singer, who described the assignment as “a huge honour”.

“James Bond is the coolest film franchise ever to exist. I’m still in shock.”

Eilish composed the track with her brother Finneas O’Connell, with whom she created her Grammy-nominated debut album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? last year.

“Writing the theme song for a Bond film is something we’ve been dreaming about doing our entire lives,” he said.

“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.”

Bond producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli said Eilish’s song is “incredibly powerful and moving”.

No Time to Die will open in UK cinemas on 3 April.
