Meh… I absolutely no idea who Billie Ellish is. I’ve sampled a few of her songs on Youtube and am NOT very impressed. Potentially, she does have a voice that could work very well but it all depends on the music. I’ve got my fingers crossed and am trying to remain optimistic. Of course, Daniel Kleinman’s title visuals will certainly be a big addition to help sell the song itself.
I always appreciate the opportunities taken by a series that I have been interested in since a child, to make me feel utterly decrepit.
Billie Eilish saying today “James Bond is the coolest film franchise ever to exist” is what they paid for, not the song.
Hopefully we’ll get a good one, though…
Indeed… I just Googled when Miss Ellish was born…Dec of 2001, which means she was 11 months old when Die Another Day hit screens in Nov. 2002… waives cane and threatens the young whippersnappers to get off my lawn!
That is so depressing I might start to listen to her album.
By the by, all that media coverage now. Aren’t they a tad late for the party?
As with other rumours that finally were confirmed by EON, that‘s how they roll these days, probably the best way to ensure longtime attention.
time progresses in a forward direction
Edited because I liked @Dustin’s joke
Put that in spoiler tags.
Unless your film is titled TENET.
I have been coming to this website, in its various forms, longer than this person has been alive. In which time she has contributed to the Bond series and I have… I dunno, had the occasional bath? Sobering thought, although not sober for long.
We have people everywhere…
I will say this ALL of my bar staff are engaged and excited about this and those with little interest in 007 are now buzzing about the movie
That is great!
Beat me to it.
If age really is a criterion, they’d should pick Bob Dylan. He’ll be 79 this year, has won Oscar, Golden Globe, Grammies, Pulitzer and Nobel Prize (just to name a few). Anyone but me who’d love to see that?
No, really, age means nothing at all when it comes to music. I’ve seen seventeen-year-olds who’d outperform many a seasoned pro, so I’m all in favor for Billie Eilish. Thing is just, her music doesn’t click with me - but that’s something I can say about man others who did Bond themes.
That is true. With rare exception, I probably don’t own anything other than the title tune on the soundtrack album for most Bond song contributors, offhand exceptions being Paul McCartney and Duran Duran.
It’s good to see the same level of interest amongst them as for the latest Marvel movie.
Lucky for her she missed it…
nothing will be as perfect (but old fashioned) as Bassey´s >No good about Goodbye< to close the circle with Craig´s last film …
