After a long wait, Billie Eilish and James Bond fans can finally watch the music video for her new single, ‘No Time To Die’.
“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 honor,” Billie Eilish said, according to Variety.
The single was dropped back in February ahead of No Time To Die‘s release, however, the film was ultimately delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. But no need to stress as Daniel Craig is set to grace our screens in November, meaning we can finally see the music video, which was apparently filmed way back in February according to an Instagram post from the young singer.
Billie Eilish’s brother Finneas produced the song and he said, “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.”
The music video features black and white footage of a stunning-looking Billie Eilish singing into a microphone, which just fits the tone and mood of the song perfectly. Intercut with Eilish’s singing are various cuts from the film, mainly of the relationship between James Bond, played by Daniel Craig, and Dr. Madeleine Swann, played by Lea Seydoux.
Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, the film’s producers, said, “Billie and Finneas have written an incredibly powerful and moving song for ‘No Time To Die’, which has been impeccably crafted to work within the emotional story of the film.”
The film’s director, Cary Joji Fukunaga also had nothing but praise for the pair. “There are chosen few who record a Bond theme. I am a huge fan of Billie and Finneas. Their creative integrity and talent are second to none,” he said.
After listening to the single and watching the new music video, it’s safe to say that ‘No Time To Die’ is a new addition to the calibre of fantastic James Bond film theme songs.
