The video is directed by Daniel Kleinman and contains images from the feature film to be released in November.
Eilish released the song “No Time To Die” in mid-November. The song was produced by her brother, Finneas, with Stephen Lipson, and the orchestral arrangement is signed by Hans Zimmer and Matt Dunkley. Johnny Marr, co-founder of The Smiths, also collaborated on this play.
Billie Eilish, 18, is the youngest artist to write and record the lead song for a “James Bond” movie.
“It seems crazy to be a part of it anyway,” she said. “Composing the main track for a ‘Bond’ movie is something I’ve dreamed of doing all my life,” Finneas added.
“No Time To Die” is directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga, who also directed, among others, the first season of “True Detective” (HBO) and “Maniac” (Netflix). He took over directing after Danny Boyle (“Trainspotting”, “Slumdog Millionaire”, “Yesterday”) resigned due to “creative misunderstandings”.
In the next feature film, Bond’s retreat to Jamaica is short after a friend comes to him for help. The former agent’s mission to save a kidnapped researcher brings him face to face with Safin, a criminal who has new technologies at his disposal.
The cast consists of Daniel Craig, Jeffrey Wright, Rami Malek, Léa Seydoux, Ben Whishaw, Christoph Waltz, Ralph Fiennes and Naomie Harris. Actresses Ana de Armas and Lashana Lynch debut in the franchise as Paloma, CIA agent, and Nomi, agent 00, respectively.
“No Time To Die” is the fifth film in the series and the last starring Daniel Craig. He also starred in “Casino Royale” (2006), “Quantum of Solace” (2008), “Skyfall” (2012) and “Specter” (2015).
The film’s premiere was postponed several times due to the pandemic. It is now set for November 12 in the UK and November 20 in North America.
