One of the greatest honors that can be given to a musician is being asked to record a theme song for the James Bond franchise. From Paul McCartney to Duran Duran to Adele, very few artists have been asked to lend their voice to the franchise. Now, another young star can be added to the list, as it has been confirmed Billie Eilish wrote and performed the latest theme, becoming the youngest artist to do so.

Billie Eilish, who just turned 18 in December, can now add another accolade to her impressive resume, after becoming the first artist born in the 2000’s to have a number one album, and the youngest to be nominated for four Grammys. Now she’s the youngest to record the James Bond theme, and though details about the song are scarce, the artist seems excited to lend her voice to the franchise. “James Bond is the coolest film franchise ever to exist. I'm still in shock,” Eilish said in a statement.

The theme songs to the James Bond franchise have done very well in the past, with some becoming hits on the chart, and others winning Academy Awards. Eilish can only hope hers gets similar praise to Adele's ‘Skyfall,’ or Sam Smith’s ‘Writing's On The Wall,’ which each won Oscars for best original song. It would be yet another impressive mark on an already incredible young career.
