Following a brief teaser, Billie Eilish has released her full No Time To Die song, and it’s great. Like the movie, the song is called “No Time To Die” and it’s a moody, atmospheric track that sees the singer exploring her range. Have a listen in the Spotify embed below.
The lyrics are striking as well, and fans may wonder if they contain clues about the story in No Time To Die. In the first verse, Eilish sings, “I should have known / I’d leave alone / Just goes to show / That the blood you bleed / Is just the blood you owe.”
The lyrics may also reference 007’s relationship with the character Madeleine Swann (Lea Seydoux). The first verse goes on, “We were a pair / But I saw you there / Too much to bear / You were my life, but life is far away from fair / Was I stupid to love you? / Was I reckless to help?/ Was it obvious to everybody else?”
The chorus is gripping as well, as Eilish sings about falling for a lie and a person who was “never on my side.” The chorus goes on, “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.”
“No Time To Die” by Billie Eilish
Eilish wrote the song alongside her brother and frequent collaborator, Finneas. This marks a special occasion for the 007 series as Eilish is the youngest artist in history to write and perform the Bond theme song.
Eilish joins a group of iconic performers to write music for the James Bond series, which includes the likes of Chris Cornell, Paul McCartney, Jack White, Alicia Keys, Sam Smith, Madonna, Sheryl Crow, Adele, Duran Duran, and more. The score for the film will be composed by the legendary Hans Zimmer.
No Time To Die is directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga (True Detective). The film stars Daniel Craig as Bond, Ralph Fiennes as M, Ben Whishaw as Q, and Naomie Harris as Miss Moneypenny. Joining them for the first time will be Rami Malek, Billy Magnussen, and Ana de Armas.
No Time to Die arrives in theater in April 8.
