The Billie Eilish momentum shows no signs of slowing down.
Weeks after becoming the youngest artist to ever sweep all four major categories at the Grammys, the 18-year-old singer-songwriter reached another historic milestone: She released the title track for the upcoming 007 installment No Time to Die, making her the youngest person to ever write and perform a James Bond theme song.
“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,” she said in a statement to Variety. “James Bond is the coolest film franchise ever to exist. I’m still in shock.”
Eilish co-wrote “No Time to Die” alongside her brother/producer Finneas, who also weighed in on the historic opportunity.
“Writing the theme song for a Bond film is something we’ve been dreaming about doing our entire lives,” he said. “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.”
The track also features orchestral arrangements from Hans Zimmer and Matt Dunkley while Johnny Marr provided guitar. Finneas produced the song with Stephen Lipson.

In other news, Eilish spoke with Apple Music's Zane Lowe about being sick for her Oscars performance, "No Time To Die," and going on tour. "Yeah, I was sick for all of the Oscars, I bombed that performance, that shit was trash," she said. "I know, I know, and it was also, like, the Oscars is not my, um, people, like, you know what I mean, like, it's not, I'm not used to that. At least the Grammy's wasn't as scary because it was, like, artists-... and it felt like my people, if felt like, oh, look a bunch of artists, and, like, I knew a lot of them already and I'd met them and they knew of me and, like-... but, like, the Oscars, I'm like, these are movie stars. It's true. Totally different, the show is so scary."
