Listen to Billie Eilish’s James Bond Song, ‘No Time to Die’

As one Oscars season comes to a close, another opens its doors anew. So begins the 2021 Best Original Song race, with this instant-classic title track for the upcoming James Bond film, No Time to Die, from 18-year-old professional Grammy collector Billie Eilish. Just last Sunday, Eilish made her Academy Awards debut singing a cover of the Beatles’ “Yesterday” for the ceremony’s In Memoriam segment. Those moody chords, written with her brother Finneas, are textbook Bond. (And if you close your eyes and listen closely, it kind of sounds like textbook haunting Lana Del Rey, too.) It’s got swelling horns, cascading strings — adding some orchestral drama to Eilish’s typical electro-pop sound — and even a little of that sonic Bond theme signature at the very end. Give it a spin here, and then remind yourself that Eilish was 4 years old when Daniel Craig made his debut as James Bond in Casino Royale.
