Listen to Billie Eilish's James Bond Theme Song, 'No Time to Die'!

I long for unfettered insanity in a Bond theme, in the style of Madonna's "Die Another Day" (in which she whispers, apropos of nothing, "Sigmund Freud, analyze this!") or Jack White and Alicia Keys's "Another Way To Die" - both bonkers tracks that are fun precisely because of how surreal and stupid they are. "/ Was I reckless to help?" asks Eilish in the bridge. The crescendo is quite impressive, with Eilish showcasing her unique talents. McCartney's band Wings performed the song, which became one of the group's most successful singles.

Eilish wrote the song with her 22-year-old brother and musical collaborator Finneas O'Connell, with orchestral arrangements by renowned composer and Oscar victor Hans Zimmer and British conductor Matt Dunkley. No Time To Die will be the fifth to star Daniel Craig and his last.

"'No Time To Die' JAMES BOND".

Listen to "No Time to Die" and read the lyrics...

Said director Cary Joji Fukunaga. I am a huge fan of Billie and FINNEAS.

In a statement, Eilish said "It feels insane to be a part of this in every way. I'm still in shock", she said in a statement, per Variety, that confirmed she was tapped to perform "No Time To Die". I want Lana Del Rey, our most serious surrealist, to write the song she was born to: a Bond theme about sex, secrets, and money. There is no more iconic pairing of music and cinema than the likes of Goldfinger and Live and Let Die.

Storm Dennis: Met Office issues warnings for more rain and wind
A separate rainfall warning will be in effect between 6am and 9pm on Saturday. River levels are likely to rise over the weekend and into early next week.

"No Time To Die" hits cinemas in the United Kingdom and USA in April, and we'll keep you posted on when it's getting an Aussie premiere.

Two weeks earlier Eilish swept the Grammys by taking the four top prizes - best album, best record, song of the year and best new artist - becoming only the second musician to win all four categories on the same night. "Was it obvious to everybody else", she asks over a production courtesy of FINNEAS and Stephen Lipson. It kicks off on March 9.

About a minute into the number, a synthesizer pipes in with a haunting snippet of John Barry's classic Bond theme, written for Dr. No.

We get some cheeky guitar licks from Johnny Marr (guitarist for The Smiths) keeping Billie's grungy vibe going, before we go Full Bond.

Adele, one of the UK's bestselling singer/songwriters, wrote and composed "Skyfall" for the 23rd James Bond movie, calling it "one of the proudest moments" of her life.

The 25th instalment of the British spy saga, due out in April, sees Bond drawn out of retirement in Jamaica by his old friend and Central Intelligence Agency agent Felix Leiter. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with risky new technology. The stacked cast also includes Rami Malek, Christoph Waltz, Ben Whishaw, Lea Seydoux, and Ralph Fiennes, to name a few.
