    Cool! I wonder if California will have a 007 game closer to the opening of No Time To Die.

    Whew, thought I was going to have to write another song to bring everyone together:

    Sure we bicker and fight, for we each think we're right
    But does that mean we can't all just get along?
    Should Bond fandom unite, gone would be sneer and slight
    And no Bond fan could ever, ever be wrong.

    Yet those who are contrite, and those who've seen the light
    Know we can disagree and still be quite strong
    If we simply stand tight, under a common smart rite
    And take to heart the point of this catchy song.

    CHORUS (Repeat as often as necessary):

    Gassy Man knows better than you.
    Gassy Man know better than you
    When you're in doubt, no need to pout
    Just remember Gassy Man knows better than you.

    I'm still working on it -- I'm trying to find phrases that rhyme with "now bow down before me" and "that opinion stinks like last week's fish" -- but you get the idea.

    According to British tabloid The Sun, Billie Eilish recorded her Bond theme in the UK after she had her birthday, which is 18 December. "It is believed Billie jetted here to put the finishing touches to the track at the famous Abbey Road Studios in West London just days after her 18th birthday."

    It's certainly looking a lot less cheap than that first trailer, which looked like a student film project.

    Finneas Talks Co-Writing the ‘No Time To Die’ Title Song on the Pop Shop Podcast

    Finneas has reveal that he and sister Billie Eilish have been working on the title song for a year, and were not 'approached' to do the song, but fought it out before ultimately being chosen.

    Another Billie Eilish scoop by James Bond Australia.
    https://www.jamesbondaustralia.com/2020/01/23/finneas-talks-co-writing-the-no-time-to-die-title-song-on-the-pop-shop-podcast/

    Eilish's brother, Finneas, told a music podcast that; "We were not really 'approached' about it. We fought it out for a year. We've always wanted to write a James Bond theme song. And you know, it's a legendary franchise, so we had to convince a lot of people that we were the right choice. And then we had to wrkite a song that everybody liked. So it was a hard won process...we got to work with Hans Zimmer and Steven Lipson in the studio."

    I'd love to know who else was fighting for it for a year.

    So if they were working with Zimmer for a year now does that mean he's been working on the score for a year as well?

    I think it's more likely they had a deadline to make the song choice, and originally they weren't bothered about the song being part of the score, but the timing of Romer's departure and Zimmer's availability made it possible and Finneas and Billie were probably selected late last year because they recorded it just before Christmas; so it's quite recent that the track was even laid down. I suspect that Romer's departure was earlier than anyone suspects, even earlier than JamesBondRadio's knowledge of it.

    I don't think Zimmer came in until it was nearly time to record the song. This leads me to believe I'm right that Zimmer is just working as a producer on the song.

    Yeah after re-reading it Finneas didn't say he worked with Zimmer for a year just that they've been working on the song for a year. Wonder if they worked with Romer as well?

    Working with Romer wouldn't have surprised me. Romer is a big-name music producer and would have been a great asset to have in that regard for the title song.

    The current version is that Romer was fired in late November. So, either Eilish was hired when Romer was doing the score or Eilish was hired and the theme song was done in about three weeks, which seems unlikely, especially since Zimmer was supposed to be involved in writing it and he wasn't announced until mid-January.

    I doubt that we will ever know the truth to this whole situation.

    Okay so studio work was with Zimmer, but they had to submit a demo in order to get the job. Fair enough.

    I wonder if anyone else submitted a demo....

    What reports said that Zimmer was involved with writing the theme? As far as I've seen it has only been said that he has worked on it, and that Billie Eilish and Finneas wrote the theme.

    "The #NoTimeToDie title song will be performed by @billieeilish. Billie has written the song with her brother @finneas and is the youngest artist in history to write and record a James Bond theme song."

    No mention of Zimmer writing it. The evidence points to Zimmer producing the theme, and he has a lot of experience as a producer.

    Based upon what I have read, that seems to be what transpired. Eilish and her brother wrote the song and submitted a demo to the Bond producers. I would guess that Zimmer will get a producer credit for his involvement in the actual recording made for the film. I do find it interesting that EON apparently did not specifically seek out Eilish. One also has to wonder if Zimmer was involved/had input in selecting the theme song and of course whether or not the theme song will appear in Zimmer's score itself. Considering Zimmer appears to have been on board since December, even the most irrationally panicky, the sky is falling types, should not have any worries that the music is being "rushed". Another related question, back in the "old" days, weren't the soundtrack albums released prior to the release of the film to build up anticipation and promote the films?

    Track titles like "Qui-gon Jin's funeral" were still being used in 1999. I'm glad they've somewhat changed their approach since.

    If that turns out to be true, it’ll be interesting to see how they fill up essentially three hours of runtime—the longest Bond yet.
