Just as she does everything, Billie Eilish is making a Bond song her way.
The 18-year-old singer released “No Time To Die” on Thursday, which will serve as the theme song for the James Bond film of the same name, the 25th in the franchise, due in theaters April 10.
With the song’s release, Eilish became the youngest artist ever to write and record a Bond theme.
In the song, Eilish croons about the pain of being deceived.
“Was it obvious to everybody else that I’d fallen for a lie?” she sings. “You were never on my side. Fool me once, fool me twice, how you dare the paradise. Now you’ll never see me cry. There’s just no time to die.”
In addition to announcing the song’s release, the franchise’s official Twitter account said Eilish will perform the song at the 2020 Brit Awards on Feb. 18, where she will be accompanied by her brother and collaborator, Finneas O’Connell, film composer Hans Zimmer and former guitarist for The Smiths, Johnny Marr.
The franchise’s official Twitter account confirmed in January that the Grammys darling would perform the theme song for the upcoming film.
“The #NoTimeToDie title song will be performed by @billieeilish,” read the announcement. “Billie has written the song with her brother @finneas and is the youngest artist in history to write and record a James Bond theme song.”
The Bond account also shared a statement from Eilish: “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.”
The singer first teased the news on her Instagram Stories, sharing several photos of Bond girls, from Léa Seydoux to Halle Berry.
“No Time to Die” features Seydoux, Daniel Craig and Rami Malek.
Eilish may still be a teenager, but the singular pop rebel has achieved more than most artists do in their entire careers: She’s charted a string of hit singles on the Billboard Hot 100, racked up 50 million followers on Instagram, won five Grammy Awards – including the four biggest – in one night and sold out three headlining tours in a matter of minutes.
In March 2019, her debut album, “When We Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?,” bowed at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart with 313,000 equivalent album units (a combination of album sales, song downloads and streams).
