Billie Eilish was the musical guest on the most recent episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where she and brother/collaborator Finneas performed new James Bond theme “No Time to Die.”
The brooding, evocative black and white performance coincided with Global James Bond Day – October 5 – and you can watch it below.
Eilish and her brother also spoke to Fallon ahead of the performance, discussing the creative process behind the song. They also discussed their huge night at this year’s Grammys and the advice Eilish received from Alicia Keys the following day (“Don’t be embarrassed for being dope”.)
Last week, Eilish dropped a similarly-styled, Daniel Kleinman-directed music video for “No Time to Die”. The visuals intersperse shots of the singer performing in black and white with various clips from the film.
Recently, Apple confirmed that a new documentary feature film about Eilish called The World’s a Little Blurry would be arriving in cinemas and on their Apple TV+ streaming platform in February next year.
The documentary, which has been teased by Eilish for nearly a year, is directed by R.J. Cutler and produced in collaboration with Eilish’s label, Interscope Records.
Over the past weekend, it was announced that No Time to Die – the 25th instalment of the Bond series – had been delayed for the second time amid uncertainty regarding the coronavirus pandemic.
After being delayed from its original April 2 release date, fans were expecting to be able to see the next instalment in the franchise in the UK on November 12 and in the US on November 20.
Now, as coronavirus cases in the UK rise and cinemas in key markets in the US remain closed, the studio has announced No Time To Die will be delayed once more.
“MGM, Universal and Bond producers, Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, today announced the release of No Time To Die, the 25th film in the James Bond series, will be delayed until 2 April  in order to be seen by a worldwide theatrical audience,” said a statement released on October 2.
