American pop star Billie Eilish will sing the theme song for new James Bond film, No Time To Die, which is due in cinemas on April 2.
18-year-old Eilish becomes the youngest person ever to write and record a Bond song and has written the title song with her brother and music producer Finneas. Eilish follows in the footsteps of artists including Adele and Sam Smith to record a Bond theme.

"It feels crazy to be a part of this in every way," Eilish said. "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".

Finneas added, "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."
Eilish has had a meteoric rise since the release of her debut album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? last March 2019. The album, which topped many end of year polls, has gone to Number One in 18 countries around the world upon release.
The singer recently made Grammy award history when she became the youngest artist ever to receive nominations in all four major categories.
She is up for record of the year, album of the year, song of the year and best new artist at the ceremony, which will take place later this month.
Finneas is also nominated for several Grammys for his work alongside his younger sister.
According to publicity for No Time To Die, "James Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help.
"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 dangerous new technology."
