No Time To Die is the twenty-fifth installment in the James Bond Franchise.
No Time To Die Theme Song
Billie Elish, 18 is the youngest to write a theme song for Bond franchise. The original theme music has been a staple of the James Bond movies throughout their entire run. Traditionally, the original song plays during the highly-stylized, opening credits. The songs serve to help set the mood for the film. It has been considered to be an honor for the musicians given a chance to perform the Bond theme.
Some of the biggest names in music have provided the theme music for Bond movies. In recent history, Sam Smith performed the song “Writing’s on the Wall” for Specter, and Adele performed “Sky-fall,” a song that was given the same name as the movie itself. In January of 2020, after much speculation, it was confirmed that Billie Eilish would provide the theme music for Bond 25. At eighteen years of age, Eilish is the youngest musician ever to record a Bond theme.
The 18-year-old singer-songwriter recently landed on the March cover of Vogue magazine, featuring three unique covers from three different photographers.

Eilish’s involvement with the film was announced last month, and she shared more details last Sunday during a red carpet interview at the Oscars. She said, “I guess it’s a ballad,” before she went on to perform a cover of ‘Yesterday’ by The Beatles during the In-Memoriam segment of the show.
The hype around the latest 007 movies is quite high as it is Daniel Craig’s final outing as the titular 007 along with Ellison’s original song. There’s also a lot of buss around the involvement of Waller-Bridge. The Fleabag creator was brought on to co-write the script, making her only the second woman ever credited on a Bond movie script.
Is 007 Relevant Now?
There’s been a lot of questions regarding whether or not [the Bond franchise] is relevant now because of who he is and the way he treats women,” Waller-Bridge told Deadline in a previous interview. “I think that’s bollocks. I think he’s relevant now. But it has just got to grow. It has got to evolve, and the important thing is that the film treats the women properly. He doesn’t have to. He needs to be true to this character.”
The cast of No Time to Die also includes Ana de Armas, who co-starred with Craig in Knives Out, Lashana Lynch, Naomie Harris, Lea Seydoux, Ben Winshaw, Jeffrey Wright, Rami Malek, and Ralph Fiennes.
