No Time to Die theme song

Regarding the song I think Eilish is in a unique position. She got the first few pages of the script with what we can assume the central motif of the film reflected in these.

I don’t know about the briefing other artists received for their efforts but I think the muted and toned down atmosphere of No Time To Die, the song, befits the film better than most other styles would. This is, in its impact, probably on par with All The Time In The World, only arriving from the other direction.

Imagine if the trio (Billie, Finneas, Han) recorded an original end song and released it just prior to the film.

Oh maybe something along the line will happen. I can imagine a second song would greatly help kicking off a second promo campaign in time.

It could be because I’ve been listening to the song repeatedly in longing anticipation for the film, but I’m at the point where I prefer Billie’s song to Adele’s. Like both of course. But Billie’s song really works for me, especially everything from “I let it burn” onwards. REALLY looking forward to seeing it play against Kleinman’s visuals.

I haven’t listened to it since March - I’m giving it a rest until the movie release date nears.

Listening to it these days I always think: what a downer.

I still love it, but haven’t listened to it in a while. It depresses me to think that we’d be approaching No Time To Die’s home media release had the pandemic not screwed with the world.

The lyrics actually speak to me more personally than any of the other Bond songs in the 2000s.

That’s one way to re-release it.

So no CD?

There apparently will be a CD in Japan too.

Great! I just ordered one vinyl version.
Does anyone know how and where to order a Japanese cd version?

Wonder if this is any indication of what the opening credits may look like–possibly all black & white?
