“You were never on my side Fool me once, fool me twice Are you death or paradise?” Billie Eilish’s much-anticipated theme song for the 25th outing of Bond, ‘No Time to Die,’ has dropped and you can listen to it below.
The theme song is written and performed by Billie Eilish, produced by her brother Finneas alongside Stephen Lipson, with orchestral arrangements by Hans Zimmer and Matt Dunkley and guitar from Johnny Marr. Billie will be performing it live for the first time, accompanied by Finneas, Zimmer and Marr at the Brit Awards in London on February 18th.
“Billie and Finneas have written an incredibly powerful and moving song for No Time To Die, which has been impeccably crafted to work within the emotional story of the film,” said Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, the producers of ‘No Time To Die.’
“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,” added director Cary Joji Fukunaga.
“It feels crazy to be a part of this in every way,” Eilish said. “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”.
“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, long live 007.”
NO TIME TO DIE is released in Irish cinemas on April 3, 2020.
