It’s been 15 years since Pierce Brosnan played James Bond, but the next 007 film will be getting a little help from the Irish. Eighteen-year-old music superstar Billie Eilish – born in California as Billie Eilish O’Connell, to parents Maggie and Jack O’Connell – has been tapped to write the theme song for the latest Bond flick No Time to Die, which hits theaters in April. This comes after Eilish nabbed five Grammy Awards in January, including, with her brother Finneas O’Connell, the win for Album of the Year for When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? ♦
