Today is the day that 007 fans and admirers of freaky kids who make music in their bedrooms have both been waiting for, because it marks the release of "No Time to Die", Billie Eilish's theme song to the forthcoming James Bond movie of the same title.
Written by Eilish and produced by her brother and frequent collaborator FINNEAS, the track also features orchestral arrangments by Hans Zimmer and Matt Dunkley, with guitar by Johnny Marr.
The song starts off quiet and builds to a cinematic storm of strings. It never quite hits the climactic heights of, say, "Skyfall", but then again, no one does that kind of drama like Adele does anyway. It's a cool tune, as you can hear for yourself:
Eilish, FINNEAS, Zimmer, and Marr are slated to give the song its live debut at the Brit Awards on February 18.
No Time to Die opens in Canada on April 10. The following night (April 11), Eilish returns to Vancouver for a concert at Rogers Arena.More
