Billie EIlish Releases New Bond Theme 'No Time to Die'

No Time To Die: Listen To Billie Eilish's Theme Song For The Latest Bond

It's finally here. Fans have been waiting for Billie EIlish's "No Time to Die" lyrics and meaning ever since she announced she'd be performing the new Bond theme.

Friendly reminder that Billie Eilish, at age 18, is the youngest person to ever record the theme song for a Bond film.

Eilish may be young, and she may be better known for her signature whisper than for Bassey-esque brassiness, but she sounds mature and commanding on "No Time to Die", bringing the old-Hollywood drama on this surprisingly classic-sounding epic.

Sharing the same name as the upcoming movie "No Time To Die", the ballad features the grungy melancholic feel that has propelled Eilish to star status and caps a remarkable few weeks for the teenager. "To be able to score the theme song to a film that is part of such a legendary series is a huge honor", Eilish said in a statement. "I'm still in shock".

Eilish made history at last month's Grammys when she became the all-time youngest Album of the Year victor and only the second artist to ever sweep all of the "Big Four" categories in a single ceremony; we will have to wait until next year to see if she adds an Best Original Song Oscar statuette to her increasingly crowded mantel and gets halfway to EGOT status. The event will also be broadcast on iHeartMedia stations nationwide and on iHeartRadio.

Fineas revealed how their involvement in No Time To Die came about.

The song has already been viewed more than 6 million times on YouTube, according to the New York Post. / There's just no time to die'.

"No Time To Die" hits cinemas in the United Kingdom and USA in April, and we'll keep you posted on when it's getting an Aussie premiere. "We fought it out for a year", he told the Billboard Pop Shop Podcast. You know, the standard Bond fare.

Fans are never ones to pull their punches when it comes to the James Bond songs, with previous efforts from some singers being dragged through the mud with little care. "But everybody that we worked with on it, Barbara Broccoli, the producer of the Bond franchise (alongside Michael G. Wilson), we got to work with Hans Zimmer and Steven Lipson in the studio - it was a real joy".

Daniel Craig as James Bond. "We've always loved that character IP (intellectual property)".

Together, the pair delivered a song that lets us see Bond in a new light. We really wanted to do it.
