That song, of course, could be a contender for best original song at the 93rd annual Academy Awards. Two Bond songs have won in that category, both in the past decade. Adele won the 2012 award for "Skyfall" (which she co-wrote with Paul Epworth) from the film of the same name. Sam Smith won the 2015 award with "Writing's on the Wall" (which he co-wrote with Jimmy Napes) from Spectre. Like Eilish, Adele and Smith got the plum assignment after sweeping the Grammys, including awards for record and song of the year.
No Time to Die will be released in the U.K. on April 2 through Universal Pictures International and in the U.S. on April 10 through MGM, via their United Artists Releasing banner.
Eilish was the first artist to sweep the "Big Four" Grammy Awards—album, record and song of the year plus best new artist—since Christopher Cross did it 39 years ago. Cross also performed on the Oscar stage, though in his case it was the following year, when he performed best original song nominee "Arthur's Theme (Best That You Can Do)" from the film Arthur. The song, which he co-wrote with Burt Bacharach, Carole Bayer Sager and Peter Allen, won the 1981 Academy Award.
This marks the second year in a row the Oscars have booked a star who made a big splash at the Grammys. Last year, album of the year winner Kacey Musgraves was quickly booked on the Oscars to introduce a performance by David Rawlings and Gillian Welch of best original song nominee "When a Cowboy Trades His Spurs for Wings."
