Billie Eilish drops No Time To Die music video as fans given hints about James Bond’s love interest

Billie Eilish has dropped the music video for her James Bond theme No Time To Die and the vibes are immaculate.

The Bad Guy hitmaker can be seen singing the gorgeous theme into an old-school microphone, lit only by a spotlight.

Billie’s part of the video is shot in black and white, with clips from the upcoming movie weaved in throughout.

The 18-year-old said of the song, which was first released in February this year: ‘It feels crazy to be a part of this in every way. To be able to score the theme song to a film that is part of such a legendary series is a huge honor.’

Her brother and collaborator Finneas O’Connell, 23, added: ‘Writing the theme song for a Bond film is something we’ve been dreaming about doing our entire lives.

‘There is no more iconic pairing of music and cinema than the likes of Goldfinger and Live and Let Die. We feel so so lucky to play a small role in such a legendary franchise, long live 007.’

And the music video may have given fans some hints about what’s to come in Daniel Craig’s final outing as 007.

It’s already been hinted in the trailer that the secret agent’s love interest, Madeleine Swann (played by Léa Seydoux), is hiding something.

As a clip of Madeleine played in the teaser, released last month, fans are told: ‘When her secret gets out, it’ll be the death of him’.

And the hints keep coming as clips of the lovers are played on top of Billie singing: ‘Was I stupid to love you? Was I reckless to help? Was it obvious to everybody else that I’d fallen for a lie?

‘You were never on my side, fool me once, fool me twice, are you death or paradise?’ Billie continues as we’re shown a clip of Madeleine weeping as she leaves on a train without Bond.

It would make sense for the song to contain subtle references to the plot, as Billie and her brother Finneas were actually given a glimpse at the script – well, the first part at least.

Speaking to GQ Hype, Finneas explained: ‘We were given the first 20 pages of the script. I guess that’s up to the point when the song comes in during the movie, right?

‘We were able to read the first 20 pages, which was obviously incredible. It gave us such a good steer and insight into where the song would fall and the tone.’

The highly-anticipated next Bond instalment is finally set to hit cinemas in November after a string of delays.

Rami Malek is set to join Daniel and Léa on the stellar cast as villain Safin, with Knives Out star Ana de Armas playing Paloma and putting Bond to shame with her epic fight sequences.

No Time To Die is released on November 12, 2020.
