It's been a successful start to the year for Billie Eilish, who swept the board at the Grammys, winning five awards including the coveted Album of the Year. She also received high praise for her performance of The Beatles song Yesterday at the 92nd Academy Awards, which she sang during the In Memoriam segment.
Well, it doesn't stop there. Just last week the 18-year-old released the theme song for the upcoming James Bond film, No Time To Die, which will be the 25th film in the series. The song, of the same title, was written by Eilish and her brother Finneas O'Connell and will feature at the beginning of the film—set to hit theatres in April 2020. Adding to her growing stack of accolades, this latest achievement makes Eilish the youngest artist to ever write and sing a song for the 007 franchise. Previous artists who've created Bond themes include Adele, Sam Smith, Jack White & Alicia Keys and even Madonna.
“It was a really good, collaborative experience. I didn’t even know it would come out before the movie, but apparently all of them do." Eilish said about the collaboration, adding "I just wasn’t aware of that, which I actually love because then people that listen to it when they go to see the movie, when it’s out, they can be like, ‘Oh my god, that’s the song.’ I can’t even tell you, I’m so psyched to see the movie the first time and be like, ‘Oh my god.’”
Eilish Performs 'No Time To Die' at the Brit Awards
The young star got the chance to perform No Time To Die in public for the first time this week, as she wowed the crowds at the Brit Awards in London. Her haunting vocals moved the audience to tears, and Eilish herself became teary afterwards as she collected the award for international female.
"I've felt very hated recently, and when I was on the stage and I saw you guys all smiling at me, it genuinely made me wanna cry".
