"007 No Time to Die" is set to release April 10, 2020, starring Daniel Craig. It is widely thought to be his final appearance as the famed spy.

Arrangements by Hans Zimmer. You can hear that.
Heard it once, it is a bit boring.

I've been listening a little too much to Zimmer lately, so the impact is a little blunted on me tbh. Like Trif says, the arrangement is so Zimmer it's immediate. Doesn't take away that the song itself is pretty strong and it's delivered well by Eilish, better than I'd thought her possible off to be fair.

My first couple listens I thought she did alright but everything around her (the lyrics, the instrumentation) were very phoned in and by-the-book Bond Theme Music.

this sounds exactly like a Bond theme, which is my only issue with it. It's a bit derivative and lacks the punch I'd have expected from Billie given her album. It's too safe.

Not a chance. I’d say it’s better than Spectre, Die Another Day, and The Man With the Golden Gun, and that’s just off the top of my head. It’s not amazing but it’s much better than those three.

I'm low-key kind of disappointed that the gap between the last Bond film and the upcoming one was long enough that Lorde didn't get a chance to make a theme.

This song is fine, but just fine.

"remember when Bond themes were unique and sounded different to one another?"

the last two feel like they tremble under the weight of skyfall but no unless ur like 80 i'm pretty sure they've always sounded the same. since the times of of 60s soprano pop, 80s new wave, 90s garage rock then AI pop, the brief shining star of You know my name then the 2010s depression dirges

don't mention the 70s

Also You Know My Name was AWESOME!!! Loved that one.

"unless ur like 80 i'm pretty sure they've always sounded the same."
This I don't agree with though. We've had quite some diversity in the last six or so. With Madonna's weird one (which was atrocious), Keys' and White's nice track and Chris Cornell all being something new. It's a pity that this one and Sam Smith's track were Skyfall light. That one was too successful, now the studio is convulsively trying to recreate that.

20 years ago? easy.


She's worse than Rihanna, Beyonce, Black Eyed Peas, Mary J Blige, Justin Timberlake, Eminem, Gnarls Barkley, Nelly Furtado, Fergie, Jamie Foxx, Christina Aguilera, Ludacris, Kanye West, Madonna, Destiny's Child, Britney Spears, Pussycat Dolls, Pink, Jennifer Lopez, Outkast, Jay Z, Gorillaz, Usher, Missy Elliot, Beck, Aaliyah, and Jill Scott for instance.

Not that a lot of those are any good but yeah Billie Eilish is complete shit and she's been around for like 3 days, hardly iconic.

An artist that is definitely worse than Billie Eilish tho?

Adele.

A bunch of the aforementioned were there too, because they lasted multiple decades (something Eilish will never come close to) also Janet Jackson, Whitney Houston, TLC, Prince, MJ, Cher, Spice Girls, Fugees, Santana, Elton John, George Michael the list goes on so yeah

Most of those artists were never anywhere as popular as eilish is right now. And I'm talking pop specifically. I'll give you Rihanna, Beyonce, outkast maybe. I'm not talking legacy, I'm talking innane comments about her popularity, her music, pop music in general in the present. But whatever, it's fighting an endless tide


And I didn't say 30 years ago for a reason but regardless half those artists were well past their golden years and running largely off their past glory (lol at spice girls though)

Only commenting on this now so I remember to give my thoughts later. I'm a decent fan of the Bond films, and I truthfully enjoy hearing each 'Bond Song' on a first-listen when I watch the film during the opening credits. I haven't heard this song yet, and I don't plan to until I see the movie. I hope it's decent?
