Billie Eilish and Finneas perform ‘No Time to Die’ on the Tonight Show
Billie Eilish has again teamed up with her brother and collaborator, Finneas, to perform their theme song for the 25th edition of James Bond while appearing on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
Eilish, who has capped off what has been a sensational 12 months with the delivery of her soon-to-be-iconic theme song for James Bond 25, No Time To Die, joins the greats such as Alicia Keys, Jack White, Shirley Bassey, Paul McCartney and so many more, as she becomes the youngest singer to ever take on the duty of the legendary James Bond theme song.
The song, titled ‘No Time To Die’, was written with brother Finneas. It also features orchestral arrangements from Hans Zimmer and Matt Dunkley as well as some iconic guitar from Johnny Marr.
“I don’t know when it was real,” Eilish said when discussing how the chance came about to write the Bond song. “But I do know, for many years, we’ve wanted to write a Bond song, not even [that] we thought we could. It was more like a fantasy, like a complete fantasy, like, ‘How cool would it be to do this?’”
“We kind of started with making a melody that we knew was really solid before we tried any lyrics out,” Eilish said of their process when writing the song. “But we did definitely, before we had written anything, go… we knew how important it was to have the title of the movie in the song and have the song be called that because it wouldn’t have been satisfying otherwise.”
