Billie Eilish singing next Bond song No Time To Die

Billie Eilish will join the ranks of Madonna, Wings, Tina Turner and Adele as the latest artist to record a James Bond theme song.

What do you do with a tent-pole movie franchise whose central character has, for the last couple of films in a row, anxious about their mortality and their looming exit from this world? Sam Smith, who released Writing's On The Wall for the last Bond film Spectre, was 23 years old at the time. "As much as I like Billie I'm quite disappointed in this".

The untitled new song does not have a release date.

Earlier, Eilish added to the swirling rumours she would perform the theme song after cryptically posting an Instagram Story featuring images of Bond girls, including Halle Berry and Lea Seydoux.

With 6 chances at Grammys gold, Eilish is one of the top-nominated artists at this year's awards gala, set for January 26.

The news comes a day after producers announced that the score for the 25th Bond film will be composed by Hans Zimmer. It was speculated over the weekend that Beyonce was doing the James Bond theme song.

One thing to keep in mind though: the director only follows 81 people.

According to The Guardian, the Fleabag creator has been chosen among many to "liven up the script". Director Cary Joji Fukunaga said: "Their creative integrity and talent are second to none and I can not wait for audiences to hear what they've brought - a fresh new perspective whose vocals will echo for generations to come".

"Their creative integrity and talent are second to none and I can not wait for audiences to hear what they've brought - a fresh new perspective whose vocals will echo for generations to come". Because let's be honest, James Bond IS a "bad guy".

Not only did Eilish perform the song, but she wrote it alongside her older brother Finneas O'Connell.

No Time to Die, the film, hits cinemas across Canada on April 8, 2020.
