Eilish may be young, and she may be better known for her signature whisper than for Bassey-esque brassiness, but she sounds mature and commanding on "No Time to Die", bringing the old-Hollywood drama on this surprisingly classic-sounding epic.
At age 18, Billie now becomes the youngest performer to ever sing a James Bond theme.
Zimmer (Pirates of the Caribbean, Gladiator) took on the soundtrack just months before its release date, taking the reins from previous composer Dan Romer who was dismissed over "creative differences", Variety reported.
Eilish had been tipped to perform No Time to Die theme at the Oscars ceremony, but instead soundtracked the "In Memoriam" montage with a soulful performance of Beatles track Yesterday, accompanied on piano by her brother Finneas.
The BRIT Awards 2020 will be broadcast live on ITV1 from 8-10pm on Tuesday 18 February.
"There are a chosen few who record a Bond theme". The movie, Daniel Craig's last outing as the superspy, is due out in April.
"Fool me once, fool me twice/Are you death or paradise?" It was the first theme song titled differently than the movie since "Dr".
The film, which is set for an April 2020 release, will mark Daniel Craig's fifth time playing the iconic spy. They're tasked with the rescue of a kidnapped scientist, but the mission turns out to be far more risky than expected as a mysterious villain armed with unsafe new technology is thrown into the mix, played by Rami Malek. If that isn't James Bond to a T! So far, Easton is the only artist to actually be seen singing on film during the opening scenes.
Fans are already saying that she may be in contention to win best original song at the Oscars in 2021. Although different from traditional Bond theme music, the song was a commercial success worldwide.
