Billie Eilish meets James Bond is the crossover we never thought we’d see. But fortunately for fans of both the young award-winning artist and the iconic spy films series, that crossover is here. Just recently, Eilish was commissioned to record the new theme song for the upcoming Bond film.
“No Time To Die” is a slow, moody track that seems to fit perfectly with the dark tone of Bond’s character arc in the most recent films. It is classic Billie Eilish style in many ways and serves as a reminder of why the 18-year-old took home five Grammy awards.
Previous Bond theme songs include “Skyfall” by Adele, “Writing On The Wall” by Sam Smith. Both of these tracks had a more dramatic orchestral element to them, but they share with the latest theme song a sort of melancholy, foreboding aura that suggests that danger is just around the corner.
The track was produced by Eilish and her brother, Finneas, whom she frequently collaborates with, and Stephen Lipson. The orchestral arrangements were produced by Hans Zimmer and Matt Dunkley.
