The first two months of Billie Eilish’s 2020 have been busier than most people’s entire year: In January, the 18-year-old pop star became the youngest person ever to win Album of the Year at the Grammys.
Two weeks later, on February 9, she performed the seminal Beatles song “Yesterday” at the Oscars during the In Memoriam segment. (She also became the awards’ best meme, thanks to her delightfully memorable reactions to the ceremony’s most-discussed moments.)
And now, she released her original theme song for the upcoming latest film in the James Bond franchise, No Time to Die.
现在她发布了即将上映的詹姆斯·邦德系列最新影片《No Time to Die》的原创主题曲。
Also called “No Time to Die,” the song fits right into the Billie Eilish oeuvre: It’s a melancholic, whispery lamentation of the end to a relationship. Or perhaps it’s a begrudging recognition that the relationship in question was poisoned from the get-go.
这首歌也叫《No Time to Die》，很符合比莉·艾利什的歌曲风格：这首歌是对一段关系结束时忧郁的轻声哀叹，或者说是勉强认可了这段从一开始就不被看好的关系。
No Time to Die is both the 25th James Bond movie and the final one to star Daniel Craig as Britain’s top spy — so its theme song seems to hint that having “no time to die” could be a misdirection. The piano ballad is the closest I can think of that a pop star like Eilish has come to releasing a dirge as a mainstream single.
《No Time to Die》是第25部詹姆斯·邦德电影，也是明星丹尼尔·克雷格最后一次出演这名英国顶级间谍，所以主题曲似乎暗示着“死期未至”可能是一种误导。这首钢琴民谣我认为是艾利什这样的歌星最接近挽歌里比较符合主流审美的单曲了。
“You were my life, but life is far away from fair,” she sings. And, later: “Fool me once, fool me twice / Are you death or paradise?” A good question, and likely one that Bond will be asking himself in the film.
