Billie Eilish has been tapped to perform the theme song for the 25th James Bond film, “No Time to Die.”

The 18-year-old multiple Grammy nominee is the youngest artist in history to write and record the Bond theme, usually a mark of prestige for an artist.

The film will be released April 10.

Eilish’s debut album, “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?,” arrived in March 2019 and is nominated for album of the year at the Jan. 26 Grammy Awards.

The previous two Bond themes came from Sam Smith (“Writing’s in the Wall”) for 2015’s “Spectre” and Adele, who won an Academy Award for best original song for 2012’s “Skyfall.”
