Shushing Everyone

The theme song for the upcoming James Bond movie is called "No Time To Die," and singer Billie Eilish gives a subtle, yet powerful performance of the tune.

The brooding single was released today, and it was written by Eilish and her brother Finneas. Bustle writes that according to the Billboard "Pop Shop" podcast, Finneas said he and Billie are huge fans of 007.

"The whole pairing is very authentic to my and Billie's relationship with those movies. We've always loved James Bond movies. We've always loved that character IP (intellectual property).

The songs in the James Bond franchise have always been significant in their own right... those are songs that have bore real importance to our songwriting lives for years. It's like a dream come true to us."

The lyrics to "No Time To Die" are as haunting as the melody: "You were my life, but life is far away from fair/Was I stupid to love you?/Was I reckless to help?/Was it obvious to everybody else?"

Eilish is only 18, but her voice sounds as if she's from another era.

"Billie at 18: singing the James Bond theme / Me at 18: singing baby shark," wrote one person underneath the audio link to "No Time To Die."

This next Bond movie to come out, the 25th for the franchise, will also be Daniel Craig's last.

No Time To Die also features Rami Malek, Christoph Waltz, Ralph Fiennes, Billy Magnussen and plenty of others. It was filmed all over the world, in places like Norway, Italy, England, Scotland and Jamaica.

Besides Craig, another actor who may be done with the Bond franchise is Ben Whishaw, who plays Q.

According to IMDb, Whishaw says he might be wrapping it up with this movie.

“I think I’m done now. I’ve done the three that I was…contracted to do," the actor said.

Whishaw told Collider that the 25th film in the spy action genre will pay homage to the Bond films that came before.

"It’s Daniel’s last film as James Bond, so I think what they can look forward to is a kind of summing up, I guess, of all of the previous Bond films that Daniel’s done. There are strands from all of the films in it, kind of reaching a conclusion."

No Time To Die producer Barbara Broccoli spoke with Entertainment Weekly last month, and gave a hint into what people might expect with this latest installment.

Broccoli says the movie begins with Bond and Madeleine Swann (Lea Seydoux), from the 2015 film Spectre, enjoying life in Jamaica, when the lid gets ripped off.

"He decided to go off with her and try to have a normal life. Which, of course, we completely blow a hole through at the beginning of this one. He starts off on a romantic journey with Madeleine and then believes that he's been betrayed by her. Sh*t happens! Everything falls apart."

No Time To Die will be released April 10.
