Artist, Billie Eilish, has been tabbed to perform the title song for the upcoming 25th installment in the James Bond franchise, No Time To Die. James Bond films are known for their iconic opening sequences, bond firing down through the target, creative imagery (usually projected upon beautiful, under-dressed or naked women), and title song that sets the tone for the story of the film.
The official Twitter for James Bond made the announcement:
“The #NoTimeToDie title song will be performed by @billieeilish. 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.”
