Now, the opening seconds of Billie Eilish's "No Time to Die" has officially been released for James Bond fans to hear.

The song has now been released on Spotify and YouTube in full, over a month before No Time To Die's April 3 release date.

"The music of Bond has always been iconic and I've already witnessed Hans adding his touch of genius to the Bond legacy".

Zimmer and Eilish will be joined at the BRITs by guitarist Johnny Marr and Eilish's brother - songwriter and pianist Finneas - to perform the haunting ballad, which was produced by Finneas and Stephen Lipson.

Like it? Those more familiar with Billie Eilish's most famous hit, "Bad Guy", may be surprised, but it's a strong, powerful single that hints at a decidedly darker, sombre tone for Daniel Craig's farewell to Bond.

Sam Smith read the screenplay to the James Bond film "Spectre" and then penned the title song in 20 minutes - a record even for him. The movie, Daniel Craig's last outing as the superspy, is due out in April. To be able to score the theme song to a film that is part of such a legendary series is a huge honor. They're tasked with the rescue of a kidnapped scientist, but the mission turns out to be far more risky than expected as a mysterious villain armed with unsafe new technology is thrown into the mix, played by Rami Malek. It was certainly the most successful Bond song at the time. "No", the very first Bond flick in 1962.

While Eilish may still be a teenager, and Finneas only 22, she recently confessed to Beats 1's Zane Lowe that recording a Bond theme has been their longtime dream. "We've written songs that have never come out that are like, 'Oh, this sounds like Bond, like, this would be dope" - like, it would never happen, whatever.

Madonna wrote and performed the title song for "Die Another Day". The 2002 film was Pierce Brosnan's final performance as 007.

Adele, one of the UK's bestselling singer/songwriters, wrote and composed "Skyfall" for the 23rd James Bond movie, calling it "one of the proudest moments" of her life.
