Billie Eilish Unveils New Bond Theme “No Time to Die”

Hot off her sweep of the Grammys, Billie Eilish has unveiled the theme song for the new James Bond film No Time to Die. The track, also called "No Time to Die," fits both Eilish's unusual style and the down-tempo trend of the Daniel Craig Bond themes. She performed the song live at the BRIT Awards with Hans Zimmer – who composed the film's score – and Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr on February 18, just a few days after she sang the Beatles' "Yesterday" at the Oscars.

And speaking of Oscars, the last two Bond themes have taken home awards for Adele and Sam Smith, respectively. Will Billie be back to win one next year? We'll see. In the meantime, take a listen to the studio version of the track below.

No Time to Die hits theaters on Friday, April 10. Billie Eilish's sold-out world tour begins Sunday, March 9, in Miami.


About Kip Mooney

Kip Mooney
Like many film critics born during and after the 1980s, my hero is Roger Ebert. The man was already the best critic in the nation when he won the Pulitzer in 1975, but his indomitable spirit during and after his recent battle with cancer keeps me coming back to read not only his reviews but his insightful commentary on the everyday. But enough about a guy you know a lot about. I knew I was going to be a film critic—some would say a snob—in middle school, when I had to voraciously defend my position that The Royal Tenenbaums was only a million times better than Adam Sandler’s remake of Mr. Deeds. From then on, I would seek out Wes Anderson’s films and avoid Sandler’s like the plague. Still, I like to think of myself as a populist, and I’ll be just as likely to see the next superhero movie as the next Sundance sensation. The thing I most deplore in a movie is laziness. I’d much rather see movies with big ambitions try and fail than movies with no ambitions succeed at simply existing. I’m also a big advocate of fun-bad movies like The Room and most of Nicolas Cage’s work. In the past, I’ve written for The Dallas Morning News and the North Texas Daily, which I edited for a semester. I also contributed to Dallas-based Pegasus News, which in the circle of life, is now part of The Dallas Morning News, where I got my big break in 2007. Eventually, I’d love to write and talk about film full-time, but until that’s a viable career option, I work as an auditor for Wells Fargo. I hope to one day meet my hero, go to the Toronto International Film Festival, and compete on Jeopardy. Until then, I’m excited to share my love of film with you.
