Billie Eilish will record the theme song for the upcoming James Bond flick No Time to Die, becoming the youngest performer to contribute a theme to the iconic spy franchise.

The official James Bond Twitter account broke the news on Tuesday (Jan. 14), noting that the 18-year-old Eilish has co-written the song with her brother Finneas O’Connell.

“It feels crazy to be a part of this in every way,” Eilish said in a statement. “To be able to score the theme song to a film that is part of such a legendary series is a huge honor. James Bond is the coolest film franchise ever to exist. I’m still in shock.”

The legendary Hans Zimmer will also contribute the score for No Time to Die. “I’m beyond excited that Hans is scoring No Time to Die,” director Cary Joji Fukunaga said. “The music of Bond has always been iconic and I’ve already witnessed Hans adding his touch of genius to the Bond legacy.”

No Time to Die, which sees 007 coaxed out of retirement to help fight a villain played by Rami Malek, is slated to hit theaters on April 10 in the United States and April 2 in the UK.
