On Thursday night, Billie Eilish released her theme song for the forthcoming James Bond movie, No Time To Die, and if you were expecting a brassy number a la “Goldfinger,” you’ve got another thing coming.

Instead, like much of Eilish’s work, the track is a slow burn — dark, moody and befitting of 007. It was written with her brother Finneas, and it marks her first new material since she became the youngest person and first woman to sweep the Big Four categories at the Grammys earlier this month.

The track also features orchestral arrangements by Hans Zimmer and Matt Dunkley.

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

No Time to Die will hit theaters on April 2 in the UK and April 10 in the US. In the meantime, listen to the theme song below.
