Five-time GRAMMY Award-winning Darkroom/Interscope Records artist Billie Eilish today unveiled the official music video for ‘No Time To Die’ the original song written for the 25th James Bond movie, NO TIME TO DIE.
Directed by Daniel Kleinman, the video features Eilish standing center stage while crooning into a large-diaphragm condenser microphone. As she sings ever so sweetly into the air, Eilish is joined by a series of images and scenes from the upcoming film. It’s pretty standard fare for a music video based on a motion picture property, but I’ll be damned if it doesn’t capture the mood of Bond’s latest mission.
Per today’s official press release for the new video:
The song is out via Darkroom/Interscope Records and was produced by Billie’s brother; fellow multi GRAMMY Award-winning FINNEAS alongside Stephen Lipson, with orchestral arrangements by Hans Zimmer and Matt Dunkley, and guitar from Johnny Marr. 18-year-old Eilish is officially the youngest artist in history to both write and record a James Bond theme.
Speaking on Billie Eilish and FINNEAS’ involvement in the film’s title track, No Time To Die producers Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli revealed: “Billie and Finneas have written an incredibly powerful and moving song for No Time To Die, which has been impeccably crafted to work within the emotional story of the film.”
Billie Eilish said, “It feels crazy to be a part of this in every way. To be able to score the theme song to a film that is part of such a legendary series is a huge honor.”
FINNEAS adds, “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.”
In NO TIME TO DIE, 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.
Directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga from a screenplay penned by Neal Purvis & Robert Wade, and Cary Joji Fukunaga and Phoebe Waller-Bridge, NO TIME TO DIE stars Daniel Craig, Rami Malek, Léa Seydoux, Lashana Lynch, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, with Jeffrey Wright, with Christoph Waltz and Ralph Fiennes as “M.” Rory Kinnear, Ana de Armas, Dali Benssalah, David Dencik, and Billy Magnussen also star.
NO TIME TO DIE will blast into theaters on November 20, 2020.
