Billie Eilish released the theme song for the 25th James Bond movie on Friday night. She and her older brother Finneas (22) wrote the four-minute ballad “No Time To Die” together. The song is about hopelessness, despair and disappointment.
Billie is accompanied by an orchestra in her Bond theme song. The musician is following in the great footsteps of artists such as Adele (31), Madonna (61) and Paul McCartney (77).

Twitter user @saifrahmanur compares the title tune with Adele’s “Skyfall”. Because “even if ‘Skyfall’ has a special place in my heart, ‘No Time To Die’ makes me feel in a very specific way”.
