theme songs go together like James Bond 007 and martinis. Over the years the artists behind these songs have run the gamut. Paul McCartney lent his talents to 1975 DIE live and leave. Duran Duran He brought his British style of the new signature wave to a killer sight. Even the band Garbage They made one for Pierce Brosnan in The World is not enough. During the Daniel Craig era, thematic songs ranged from forgettable (Chris Cornell for CASINO ROYALE), to terrible (Sam Smith for SPECTER), to iconic (Adele for SKYFALL).
With the release date of Daniel Craig’s last release as James Bond in NO TIME TO DIE imminent, production is under some time. Hans Zimmer recently signed to record the movie after Dan Romer left. Reports indicate that the score must be completed by mid-February, it is not an easy task. Fortunately, MGM does not have to worry about who will play the main song of the film, as it has been confirmed that the English alternative pop star Billie Eilish will perform the song he co-wrote with his brother Finneas.

This is certainly a change in the direction of the music of James Bond wise. Recent themes remind of soft jazz. There tends to be an ethereal feeling still tense to most James Bond themes. However, Eilish’s lyrics have a spooky and dark tone to them. They also tend to lean towards a younger audience. In fact, with this announcement, Eilish officially becomes the youngest artist to record a James Bond theme. I would anticipate that your next version will have a slightly broader appeal than just the millennium generation though.
