The Los Angeles-born singer, who only turned 18 in December, is the youngest artist to record a Bond track.

As he navigates his own booming career, which included working on Selena Gomez's hit single Lose You to Love Me, the performer doesn't feel pressure following up Billie's massively successful debut album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?

In another part of the interview, Finneas related how he and Billie celebrated their great victories.

"No Time To Die" opens in theaters in the US on April 10.

Later in the song, Eilish noticeably breaks form from the "whisper-singing" that's made her famous-and gotten her fair share of criticism-and unleashes the full weight of her vocal power.

'She was very grateful, obviously, ' the singer's brother and collaborator, 22, told Vogue of his big night with Billie.

Billie Eilish's hotly-anticipated Bond theme song is finally out, and it was worth the wait (and the hype).

No Time To Die is Daniel Craig's fifth and final outing as James Bond.

No Time to Die director Cary Joji Fukunaga agreed with an emphatically supportive quote included in the official announcement.

"No Time To Die" comes nearly a year after Eilish suffered a backlash over her single "Wish You Were Gay".

This lyrics is a mahor giveaway - we know one face returns in Blofeld, as Bond is forced to confront him in prison.

Eilish said in a statement, "It feels insane to be a part of this in every way".

But how does she feel after getting her hands on the trophies?

One theory which has been sweeping the fan sites is a theory that Madeleine is closely connected to Spectre, and did not reveal this to her boyfriend before their time away. Eschewing the palatable strangeness she's known for, the track settles for a formula that's become more commonplace with each successive Bond theme: serious balladry, an orchestral arrangement, a vague interpolation of the Bond musical motif that occurs in every film.

In one of the trailers, Madeleine cries over a mask, which was worn by numerous Spectre members and is identical to one worn by Safin later on in the same trailer.

The Guardian's Alexis Petridis speaks in similarly glowing terms, with Eilish's effort hailed as "a Bond theme befitting of the Craig era". You know, the standard Bond fare.

Another theory which has been going round is that Safin is in fact Dr No, so could the face from the past be Safin's as the first ever film villain for Bond comes back in a new form?
