(Reuters) – The sensation of American teen pop Billie Eilish said Tuesday she was honored to have been chosen to write and record the main song of the upcoming James Bond movie "No Time to Die."
Eilish, 18, who wrote the song with his brother Finneas O & # 39; Connell, will be the youngest artist in history to take on the task, following in the footsteps of musicians like Adele, Madonna and Paul McCartney, the producers said in a post on the official Twitter account @ 007.
"No Time to Die," the 25th movie of the James Bond series, hits theaters in April with Daniel Craig resuming his role as a British secret agent for the fifth and last time.
Alternative pop star Eilish had a great year in 2019, with hits like "Bad Guy" and "All the Good Girls Go to Hell," and is nominated for six Grammy Awards later this month, including top prizes: album of the year and best new artist.
“It feels crazy to be part of this in every way. Being able to mark the main song of a movie that is part of such a legendary series is a great honor. James Bond is the coolest film franchise ever. I'm still in shock, "Eilish said in a statement.
Eilish wrote and recorded most of his debut studio album "When We Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?" With his brother Finneas, 22, in the small room of his house in the Los Angeles area.
"Writing the main song for a Bond movie is something we have been dreaming of all our lives," Finneas said in a statement.
Adele's main theme for the 2012 Bond movie "Skyfall" won an Oscar, a Grammy and a Golden Globe Award, while the song by British singer Sam Smith for "Specter" took home the best original Oscar song in 2016.
