'No Time to Die': Listen to Billie Eilish's Theme Song for 25th James Bond Movie Here (Audio)

Film opens in theaters on April 10

Billie Eilish has released the title track and theme song to the next James Bond movie, “No Time to Die,” a steamy but delicate and whisper quiet ballad to accompany Daniel Craig’s final turn as 007.

The Grammy-winning artist for 2020’s Album of the Year is the youngest musician to ever write and record the theme song for a James Bond movie, and she wrote the track with her brother Finneas and incorporated the traditional 007 theme, as well as special guests Hans Zimmer and guitarist Johnny Marr on the song.

“Though you’ll never see me cry, there’s just no time to die,” Eilish sings on the title track.

Finneas produced “No Time to Die” along with Stephen Lipson via Darkroom and Interscope Records, with orchestral arrangements by Zimmer and Matt Dunkley, and guitar from Marr.

Eilish will also perform the song live on Feb. 18 at The Brit Awards in London.

“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,” producers of the film Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli said in a statement.

“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,” “No Time To Die” director Cary Joji Fukunaga said in a statement.

“It feels crazy to be a part of this in every way. 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,” Eilish said in a statement.

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

Eilish just performed a cover of The Beatles’ “Yesterday” during the Oscars In Memoriam segment on Sunday, which you can be listening to here. She also kicks off a North American tour, the “Where Do We Go?” tour, on Mar. 9.

“No Time To Die” opens in theaters in the U.S. on April 10. Listen to the track above.

  • Despite the sizzling controversy over the ouster of Deborah Dugan as head of the Grammy’s Recording Academy and her claims that the org is a “boy’s club,” Instagram’s Grammy Luncheon on Friday January 24 at Ysabel celebrated women in music. Which meant honoring powerful women in the industry including (clockwise from left) Ethiopia Habtemariam, Gail Mitchell, Jacqueline Saturn and Sylvia Rhone.

  • Friday night at the Dream Hollywood hotel’s Highland Room Lincoln brought their new Corsair SUV to the party, as well as the four finalists of their Chart Your Course songwriters contest. Spearheaded by Grammy winner Jon Batiste, who told TheWrap that “I wanted to be a part of something different than just a singing contest, we already have plenty of those,” the winner was chosen by viewers of the Grammy Awards show. Texan Cas Haley took home the gold, including a talent contract and a Corsair of his very own.

Convention Center to celebrate Aerosmith at the annual MusicCares benefit gala, where once-in-a-lifetime moments like Depp and Aerosmith’s Joe Perry doing dueling axes happened all night long.

  • At Clive Davis’ elite Pre-Grammy Gala and Grammy Salute to Industry Icons Honoring Sean “Diddy” Combs (quite a mouthful of a title), it was a Saturday night of superstars, both onstage and off. Janet Jackson hit the stage at the Beverly Hilton, as did Lil’ Kim, Wiz Khalifa, Usher, Cyndi Lauper, Brandy Carlile, John Legend, Carlos Santana and Cynthia Ervio, while Nancy Pelosi, Billy Porter, Joni Mitchell and Jay-Z and Beyonce looked on.

  • Sir Lucian Grainge’s 2020 Artist Showcase made Milk Studios the place to be on Saturday, as UMG brought out its favorite sons and daughters to put on a big show. From Billie Eilish, Maggie Rogers, Anthony Ramos and soulful crooner Gregory Porter to Da Baby’s lively performance, everyone on stage seemed to have a blast. Hollywood’s famous faces showed up here, too, with Mandy Moore, Howie Mandel and Spike Jonze part of the packed crowd.

  • Triumphant Billie Eilish did a quick clothing change (but kept the two-tone hair) after the Grammy Awards and headed to the hottest after-party in town, as UMG took over Rolling Greens in DTLA. Lots of photo/video booths and DJ tunes kept partygoers busy and bopping, while top company execs shared air kisses with everyone from Hailee Steinfeld and Beck to Trombone Shorty, Lewis Capaldi, Heidi Klum and AnnaSophia Robb.

  • Sony Music picked Neuehouse Hollywood as their Grammys 2020 after-party spot, and all the cool kids showed up, with John Legend, Chrissy Teigen and Cyndi Lauper leading the charge. Usher caused a stir when he turned up, after his Grammy show tribute to Prince drew raves; and Diplo, H.E.R., Camila Cabello, DJ Khalid, Little Nas X and head honchos Clive Davis and Rob Stringer joined in the celebration of numerous Grammy 2020 wins.
