Billie Eilish provided the music on the most recent episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, an effort which saw her team up with her brother and collaborator FINNEAS to perform the new James Bond theme song ‘No Time to Die’.
No Time to Die had originally been rescheduled to be released in November, but a further delay has now been announced which would see it finally hit screens next April, a year later than initially planned. However, that didn’t prevent Eilish from performing the number on Fallon to celebrate Global James Bond Day on October 5th.
Eilish capped off what has been a sensational 12 months with the delivery of her soon-to-be-iconic theme song for James Bond 25, edged out competition from some of music’s biggest names to land the gig of opening up Daniel Craig’s final role as 007 and cements her status of being the zeitgeist artist of our times.
Eilish, who wrote the theme song ‘No Time To Die’ with her brother Finneas, previously said of the opportunity: “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 honour. James Bond is the coolest film franchise ever to exist. I’m still in shock.”
Her brother Finneas, added: “Writing the theme song for a Bond film is something we’ve been dreaming about doing our entire lives. There is no more iconic pairing of music and cinema than the likes of Goldfinger and Live and Let Die. We feel so so lucky to play a small role in such a legendary franchise, long live 007.”
