The theme for the upcoming James Bond movie by Billie Eilish is a dramatic, eerie ballad that suggests the storyline would focus on the deception of the secret agent.
The lyrics to No Time To Die reflect lies and deceit, as Eilish sings: “You’ve never been on my side.” The song was released at 00:00 GMT, at the same time as the new trailer for the film, starring Daniel Craig.
Eilish, who turned 18 in December 2019, is the youngest singer ever to record a song for Bond Movies.
The announcement was highly anticipated at the end of a week that saw her appear on Oscars to a global TV audience.
No Time To Die opens with an unsettling piano theme, with the star’s voice exhausted as she sings, “I should have known that I would leave alone.”
A familiar guitar tremolo adds to the chorus, where the singer establishes her theme: “I fell for a lie… Are you dead or paradise?” “Now you’ll never see me crying,” she concludes. “There’s just no time to die.” Words seem to support the fan theory that Daniel Craig’s final Bond appearance will see him double-crossed by Madeleine Swann (Lea Seydoux), his love interest in the previous film, Spectre.
