The Bond franchise gets an image reboot as Billie Eilish theme song confirmed

Lending her talents to the next film instalment, "No Time To Die", she will become the youngest artist to do the honours.

In case you hadn’t noticed, film soundtracks are big news nowadays. Just last week saw Normani and Megan Thee Stallion teaming up for the Birds of Prey soundtrack, and November’s Charlie’s Angels reboot witnessed an all-star soundtrack curated by Ariana Grande.

Now, Billie Eilish has jumped on the bandwagon by confirming that she will be writing and recording the theme tune for the forthcoming Phoebe Waller-Bridge-written Bond film, No Time To Die. Announcing the news, the 18-year-old musician said: “James Bond is the coolest film franchise ever to exist. I’m still in shock.”

Given that Eilish’s predecessors Sam Smith and Adele both won Oscars for their efforts, this is Big News and only leaves us wondering what’s next for Eilish…world domination?
