Teen music phenom Billie Eilish has written a James Bond theme song that will be part of the next 007 movie, producers announced Tuesday.

The 18-year-old is the youngest artist ever to take on the task handled in past Bond films by Paul McCartney (“Live and Let Die”), Carly Simon (“Nobody Does It Better”), Adele (“Skyfall”) and other greats.

The new movie, “No Time to Die,” opens April 10 and is said to be the last stand for current 007 Daniel Craig.

Eilish wrote the title song with older brother Finneas, her frequent collaborator.

“It feels crazy to be a part of this in every way,” Eilish said in a statement. “To be able to score the theme song to a film that is part of such a legendary series is a huge honor.James Bond is the coolest film franchise ever to exist. I’m still in shock.”

Eilish is nominated for six Grammys at the Jan. 26 ceremony for her debut album “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?” and her chart-topping single “bad guy.”
