American teen pop sensation Billie Eilish, fresh off her huge Grammy Awards victory and an Oscar night time performance, has launched her much-anticipated legit theme tune to the forthcoming James Bond film No Time to Die.
The four-minute ballad, a haunting tune of betrayal and despair co-written by means of Eilish and her older brother, Finneas, and performed to an orchestral arrangement, was once posted on Thursday to YouTube and a number music streaming sites.
The recording, itself titled No Time to Die, was once produced with the aid of Finneas with a musical association with the aid of Hans Zimmer and Matt Dunkley. The track, released by means of Eilish’s Interscope Records/Darkroom label, includes veteran British session musician Johnny Marr on guitar.
Eilish, 18, becomes the youngest artist ever to write and file a James Bond theme song, following in the footsteps of such stars as Adele, Madonna and Paul McCartney.
The film No Time to Die, the twenty fifth title in the James Bond action picture franchise, is due to arrive in theatres in April, with Daniel Craig resuming his title position as the British secret agent for a fifth and closing time.
Eilish is slated to operate the theme song live for the first time at the Brit Awards in London February 18, in advance of the March 9 launch of her North American arena tour, Interscope stated in a statement.
She had widely been predicted to debut the Bond single at the Academy Awards exhibit on Sunday, however she sang the Beatles’ Yesterday in the course of the telecast’s in memoriam section instead.
Two weeks earlier Eilish swept the Grammys by taking the 4 pinnacle prizes — great album, first-class record, track of the 12 months and satisfactory new artist — becoming solely the 2d musician to win all four classes on the equal night.
Eilish wrote and recorded most of her debut studio album — “When We Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?” — with her brother, Finneas, 22, in the small bedroom of their Los Angeles-area home.
The album, together with such hits as When the Party’s Over, Everything I Wanted and Bad Guy, ranked as the No 1 album of 2019.
