Written by Eilish and her brother/regular collaborator Finneas O’Connell, “No Time To Die” is almost instantly recognizable as a Bond theme (listen for those horns), and Eilish’s haunting vocals add a fresh spin while also recalling Adele’s stellar performance on Skyfall.
We also have a new TV spot for the movie which showcases the tune along with quite a bit of new footage.

At just 18-years-old, Eilish is the youngest artist in history to write and record a James Bond theme song. A multi-platinum selling and GRAMMY Award nominated singer, her first full-length album “When We All Asleep, Where Do We Go?” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in the U.S as well as 17 additional countries around the world when it was released last year.
In No Time To Die, Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.
No Time To Die will be released in theaters globally from 2 April 2020 in the UK and in the US on 10 April 10.
Do you think “No Time To Die” could go down as one of the more memorable James Bond theme tunes? Let us know in the comments, and scroll through our gallery below for some recently released stills from the movie.

Daniel Craig was ultimately convinced to return as the iconic super-spy for one more adventure, but he had to be certain that he was up to the physical challenge of the role.
“I finished that movie with a broken leg,” says the actor of his experience filming Specter. “I had to question myself: Was I physically capable of doing [another one] or did I want to do another one? Because that phone call to your wife saying ‘I’ve broken my leg’ is not pleasant.”
Léa Seydoux reprises her role of French psychologist Madeleine Swann, who Bond decided to settle down with at the end of Specter. Of course, that didn’t last!
“He decided to go off with her and try to have a normal life,” says producer Barbara Broccoli. “Which, of course, we completely blow a hole through at the beginning of this one. He starts off on a romantic journey with Madeleine and then believes that he’s been betrayed by her.” Adds Seydoux, “S— happens! Everything falls apart.”
Our new Commissioner Gordon Jeffrey Wright will also be back as CIA agent Felix Leiter, who asks Bond for help rescuing a kidnapped scientist (David Dencik from Top of the Lake).
This ultimately leads Bond to Cuba and onto the trail of Safin.
Moneypenny, Tanner, and Q
Three more returnees: Naomie Harris as Eve Moneypenny, Rory Kinnear as Tanner, and Ben Whishaw as Q.
We still don’t know a whole lot about Safin, but Broccoli describes him as “really a mean old thing.”
“Let’s just say that there are some immense challenges [he] has faced in his life,” adds Malek.
Captain Marvel’s Lashana Lynch plays another Agent named Nomi, who is rumored to take over the 007 mantle from Bond. The actress describes her as “a fierce, opinionated working woman.”
