Billie Eilish is set to perform the newest Bond movie theme song, trading out her “Bad Guy” for a “Bond Guy” in No Time to Die.

The Grammy Award nominated artist has written the title track for the newest James Bond movie with her elder brother and frequent collaborator Finneas. She will become the youngest artist in history to write and record a song for a Bond movie, joining the likes of Adele, Madonna, and Tina Turner.

“It feels crazy to be a part of this in every way,” said Eilish in a press release.

“Writing the theme song for a Bond film is something we’ve been dreaming about doing our entire lives,” Finneas added. It’s great that they get to actualize these very specific dreams.

Eilish rose to prominence on music platform SoundCloud. The 18-year-old singer-songwriter is up for six Grammy awards this year, including Best New Artist and Record of the Year. She’s known for her goth pop sound and her single “Bad Guy” usurped “Old Town Road” on the top of the Billboard 100.

The newest Bond movie will be Daniel Craig’s last as 007, though he may be passing his moniker over to Captain Marvel’s Lashana Lynch. In No Time to Die, Bond has left active service at the beginning of the movie, retiring to Jamaica, he’s immediately pulled back in action when an old pal from the CIA shows up at his doorstep.

Returning to the cast are Ralph Fiennes as M, Naomie Harris as Moneypenny, Ben Whishaw as Q, Rory Kinnear as Bill Tanner, Jeffrey Wright as CIA officer Felix Leiter, and Lea Seydoux, who returns as her Spectre character Dr. Madeleine Swann, daughter of the mysterious Mr. White character.

No Time to Die comes out on April 2 in the U.K. and April 10 in the U.S.
