Billie Eilish’s song for new James Bond film No Time To Die drops onlineFebruary 14, 2020
Billie Eilish has released her James Bond theme song for No Time to Die.
The 18-year-old singing sensation was chosen to record the 25th Bond theme and there has been much anticipation for what the teen will produce.
The five-time Grammy award winner released the track on Instagram at midnight, ahead of the film's release in April.
The film is set to be Daniel Craig's last appearance as 007 and Eilish has confirmed on social media that she is set to perform the new track for the first time at the BRIT Awards next week.
Eilish will be joined by Hollywood film composer Hans Zimmer and an orchestra, as well as Johnny Marr for the exclusive performance.
The performance at the 40th annual BRIT Awards ceremony is already being hailed as potentially being her 'Adele' moment, which could help define her career.
A source told MailOnline: "Artists at the BRITs this year have been given more creative licence with their performances and Billie wanted nothing more than to showcase No Time to Die on a big stage in the country where James Bond is famed for."
Eilish has written and produced the theme and it is in a classic Bond mode.
The song, just over four minutes in length, features heavy use of the piano as well as Eilish's signature ghost-like whisper.
"Was I stupid to love you? Was I reckless to help?" Eilish asks on the track, which she co-wrote with her brother and collaborator Finneas.
It gradually builds up to a crescendo as Eilish sings: "Fool me once, fool me twice. You'll never see me cry, there's just no time to die."
Initial reaction to the theme has been positive on social media with many of her followers tweeting "you've killed this," in reply to Eilish sharing the track.
James Bond producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli have hailed the decision that Zimmer would be writing the score for the latest 007 adventure.
They said it was a "dream come true" that Zimmer, who won an Oscar for his work on Disney's The Lion King in 1994.
