Billie Eilish Calls Her Oscars Performance 'Trash'

Get ready for bulk goosebumps, because Billie Eilish has finally dropped her big moody theme for the latest James Bond film, No Time To Die.

With the song, Eilish becomes the youngest person in history of the Bond franchise to write and record a theme song for one of the iconic films.

It features heavy use of the piano as well as Eilish's signature whisper while fans of the franchise will recognise the chord that ends the song, taken from Monty Norman's original Bond theme. It's also worth mentioning that the two most recent Bond songs-Sam Smith's "Writing's on the Wall" for Spectre in 2015 and Adele's "Skyfall" for the 2012 film of the same name-both won the Oscar for Best Song in their respective years. "I don't know how much they loved the idea of fresh Rami coming in", he said.

The composer, who helped produce Selena Gomez " Lose You to Love Me", went on to reveal that he really fell in love with his fellow nominees Lizzo Y Lil Nas X.

They added: "I put a lot of pressure on myself and I didn't realise how people really have in their head what a Bond song is so you're never gonna please everyone but she's done such a handsome job and she's kept it classic which I'm so happy about".

Needless to say, this song was always going to be a smash hit, and the vibe is ideal mixture of Eilish's unique style and James Bond themes of old. But the Bond-ian touch comes when an orchestra swells in the background, gaining intensity as the song progresses before it closes with a twangy guitar chord that subtly evokes the Bond themes of the '60s. Her brother, Finneas, has an answer to that particular question.

From here, Billie sings: 'We were a pair, but I saw you there.

"It was honestly like a great process", she told Apple Music's Zane Lowe.

Eilish is the most popular artiste at the moment and her big win at Grammys 2020 has sealed her place at the top.

Eilish's involvement with the film was announced last month, and she shared more details last Sunday during a red carpet interview at the Oscars. It kicks off on March 9. Lana feels like such a born Oscar victor that it felt particularly vindictive when, a few years ago, an anonymous Academy voter reportedly tried to stop her Great Gatsby track "Young & Beautiful" from being nominated.
