After sharing images of notorious Bond girls, including Bérénice Marlohe from 2012’s “Skyfall” and Halle Berry from the 2002 film “Die Another Day,” to her Instagram story on Monday night, Eilish broke the news to followers on Tuesday with a post.
“JAMES BOND… I AM SINGING THE THEME SONG,” Eilish wrote in the caption, along with a series of shocked-face emojis.
Eilish turned 18 in December, and will be the youngest artist ever to create a song for the legendary spy films. Other artists who’ve penned songs for the franchise include Adele, for 2012’s “Skyfall,” Sam Smith, for the 2015 film “Spectre,” Madonna, for 2002’s “Die Another Day,” and Paul McCartney, who wrote “Live and Let Die” for the 1973 Bond film of the same name.
The Grammy-nominated singer called her new gig “so unreal” in her Instagram stories, and told BBC, “It feels crazy to be a part of this in every way.”
