Billie Eilish's unstoppable quest for total world domination has shown zero signs of abating as we kick off a new decade, the 19-year-old wunderkind revealing that she's about to join a group that includes the likes of Adele, Duran Duran, Shirley Bassey, and Sir Paul McCartney.
Eilish has confirmed that, along with her songwriting partner and sibling Phineas, she's been tagged to write the theme song for the next James Bond film. No Time to Die will see Daniel Craig—widely credited with reviving a once-flagging franchise—return as Agent 007. Christoph Waltz is back as Blofeld, with Lashana Lynch, Ana de Armas, and Rami Malek joining the Cary Joji Fukunaga-directed film.
Eilish has given every indication she couldn't be more thrilled to be involved, releasing a statement where she 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 honor. James Bond is the coolest film franchise ever to exist. I'm still in shock."
What the famously downbeat doom-pop star has planned for the film remains to be seen. It's entirely possible that people will end up leaving the theatre feeling more claustrophobic, sad, and generally bummed out on life than that time Trent Reznor scored the otherwise feel-good flick Bird Box.
No Time to Die opens on April 10. Here's the trailer.
