Is Billie Eilish Recording the Next James Bond Theme Song?

Is Billie Eilish about to join a storied club that includes Shirley Bassey, Paul McCartney, Carly Simon, Duran Duran, Madonna, Adele and Sam Smith?

Bond watchers sure think so after the 18-year-old "Bad Guy" singer posted a series of pictures on her Instagram Story that spotlighted Bond actresses including Halle Berry, Eva Green and Lea Seydoux. Eilish didn't offer any additional captions or comments, so she could be dropping some cryptic hints about her involvement in the next film...or maybe she's just a fan of the Bond girls?

The next bond movie, No Time to Die, will be released on April 10 in North America. Oscar-winning composer Hans Zimmer confirmed on Monday (Jan. 13) that he will compose the score for Daniel Craig's final go-round as Agent 007. No Time to Die also features Oscar-winner Rami Malek as the reported bad guy, Safin.

The movies legendarily feature a title song by a global superstar; a spokesperson for Eilish had not returned a request for comment at press time.

If the news is true, Eilish would become the youngest-ever person to record a Bond theme; Smith was 23 when he recorded the 2015 theme for Spectre, "Writing's on the Wall."
