from Billie with love
The artist behind the next James Bond theme song has been revealed: the name's Eilish. Billie Eilish.
Eilish and the official Bond Twitter account confirmed Tuesday that she'd be writing and performing the title song for the next Bond film, No Time to Die. Rumors about Eilish's involvement in the project previously popped up Sunday, and she fueled speculation by cryptically posting Bond images on her Instagram.
At 18 years old, Eilish will become the youngest artist ever to write and record a Bond theme song, according to the official announcement.
"It feels crazy to be a part of this in every way," Eilish said in a statement. "To be able to score the theme song to a film that is part of such a legendary series is a huge honor. James Bond is the coolest film franchise ever to exist. I'm still in shock." Eilish wrote the theme with her brother, Finneas O'Connell, who tweeted Tuesday, "We are so proud of it and can't wait for you to hear it."
The last two Bond theme songs were performed by Sam Smith and Adele, both of whom won the Academy Award for Best Original Song. No Time to Die, the theme for which could very well could land Eilish an Oscar of her own, is set to hit theaters on April 10.
