Billie Eilish Has Confirmed She Will Be Doing the Bond Theme Song

Billie Eilish Has Confirmed She Will Be Doing the Bond Theme Song

Billie Eilish has confirmed on Instagram that she will be doing the 007 theme song.

In a tweet released on the official James Bond Twitter account, Billie said: "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 honour. James Bond is the coolest film franchise ever to exist. I'm still in shock."

In an earlier tweet, the franchise wrote: "The title song will be performed by @billieeilish. Billie has written the song with her brother @finneas and is the youngest artist in history to write and record a James Bond theme song."

The film, which is set for an April 2020 release, will mark Daniel Craig's fifth time playing the iconic spy, but the trailer also introduces us to some new characters too.

That includes Rami Malek, who'll be taking on the role of villain Safin. Other additions to the long-running franchise include Knives Out star Ana de Armas and Captain Marvel's Lashana Lynch.

We'll also be seeing some familiar characters alongside Bond, such as Ralph Fiennes as M, Naomie Harris as Moneypenny, Ben Whishaw as Q, Léa Seydoux as Madeleine Swann, Jeffrey Wright as Felix Leiter and Christoph Waltz as Ernst Stavro Blofeld.

Per the official synopsis: "Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help."

It goes on: "The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology."

And earlier this year, reports claimed we could be a step closer to seeing a female 007, with news that British actor Lashana Lynch is set to take over the spy's iconic code name in the forthcoming movie.

Speaking to the Mail On Sunday, a film insider has revealed the actor will be introduced during a 'pivotal' scene - but fans of the franchise needn't worry, James Bond will still be there.

They said: "There is a pivotal scene at the start of the film where M says, 'Come in 007,' and in walks Lashana who is black, beautiful and a woman.

"It's a popcorn-dropping moment. Bond is still Bond but he's been replaced as 007 by this stunning woman.

"Bond, of course, is sexually attracted to the new female 007 and tries his usual seduction tricks, but is baffled when they don't work on a brilliant, young black woman who basically rolls her eyes at him and has no interest in jumping into his bed. Well, certainly not at the beginning."

No Time To Die will be released in the UK on 2 April 2020 and 8 April 2020 in the US.
