Billie Eilish Youngest Artist To Record James Bond Theme

Billie Eilish is set to be the youngest artist ever to record a James Bond theme. The 18-year-old confirmed today that she is set to sing the song for the upcoming 25th James Bond movie, No Time To Die, by posting a photo of the iconic 007 logo onto her Instagram (see below).

In No Time To Die, Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.

The theme song recorded by Eilish will be released on Darkroom/Interscope Records/Universal Music Canada, the country's leading music company. No Time To Die will hit theatres globally from April 2 this year in the UK through Universal Pictures International and in the US on April 10, from MGM via their United Artists Releasing banner.

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

FINNEAS added: "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”.
