The American singer and songwriter, Billie Eilish, she’s the 18-year-old, is the youngest artist in history to write and record a James Bond theme song. Whose Nineties rapper-meets-suburban goth dress sense, Billie Eilish is a long way from Bond’s usual world of sleek sophistication, is a surprise choice.
Though details about the song have yet to be released, we do know she wrote the song with older brother Finneas Baird O’Connell, an american songwriter, record producer, singer, musician, and actor, thats has written and produced music for various artists, including Billie.
Billie Eilish said:
“James Bond is the coolest film franchise ever to exist. I’m still in shock.” “It feels crazy to be a part of this in every way.”
Previously, the list of Bond songs include names like Shirley Bassey, Paul McCartney, Adele and other makers of smooth big-time pop.
The latest Bond film, set to be released in April, is titled “No Time to Die.” It’s also expected to be Daniel Craig’s last appearance as Bond.
Stephen Colbert, in your “The Late Show”, teased viewers with a fake at Billie Eilish’s new James Bond movie theme song, he joked after playing a clip from Eilish’s admittedly out-there “Bad Guy” visual.
