Billie Eilish is willing to leave it all behind on her new song.
A month after announcing herself as the voice behind the upcoming film, Eilish officially unveiled her newest record “No Time to Die,” which serves as the theme song to the 25th James Bond movie of the same name. Following the traditions of previous Bond theme tracks like Adele’s “Skyfall” and Paul McCartney’s “Live and Let Die,” the 18-year-old leaves her mark on the franchise with a breathtaking ballad about learning from the mistakes of one’s past.
“I should have known/ I’d leave alone/ Just goes to show/ That the blood you bleed is just the blood you owe,” the artist opens in the blue melody, leading to the melancholic chorus, “You were never on my side/ Fool me once, fool me twice/ Are you death or paradise?/ Now you’ll never see me cry/ There’s just no time to die.”
Speaking of the Bond song, co-written with brother FINNEAS, Eilish told Variety: “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. James Bond is the coolest film franchise ever to exist. I’m still in shock.”
