Billie Eilish Worries Her Bond Theme Won’t ‘Be Good Enough’ For Daniel Craig

Billie Eilish says she worries her Bond No Time To Die theme won’t be “good enough” for Daniel Craig.

The multi-award winning singer, 20, said she felt pressured to hand the song “hugely important” to the actor and “didn’t feel worthy” to write it.

The song has won multiple awards and was nominated for best original song at this year’s Oscars.

Speaking on Deadline’s Crew Call podcast with her brother and co-writer Finneas O’Connell, she revealed that Craig had the final say on the inclusion of the song in the film.

“Daniel has to be the one to sign it and it’s been a really big deal for him, it’s been his entire last 17 years or something, and that’s been a lot for him.” she said.

“This is his last movie, it’s something that has taken over his life as long as he’s finished it and is incredibly important.

“Of course this movie will be the most important because it will be the last. The song needs to be good.

“I don’t know if it’s good enough for him.

“But then it got into the movie and when we met Daniel Craig, he was the most charming, kind, amazing person and he was so complimenting and that meant a lot to me.”

When approached to write the song, Eilish added: “We didn’t have this feeling (about) ‘we’re the perfect people to do this’.

“It was like, ‘oh no, someone else should do this’. We’d love to do it, but we certainly don’t feel worthy.”

The brothers and sisters added that after a slow start, they had come a long way and that the song “wrote us ourselves.”

“When we started writing, it was hard to get into the field because we had so much to accomplish in the making of this song,” Eilish said.

“Once we started and got a few tunes that were going to make up a song, it was easy to write.

“It really came to us when we took our first step, the song wrote itself for us.

“I hate the word easy because it’s not easy, but it just flows naturally.”

The pair admitted it was “difficult” to keep the ending of No Time To Die a secret for nearly two years after seeing an enhanced screening in 2019.

“People ask me all the time, like constantly, and I’m like, ‘I don’t want to tell you,'” Eilish said.
