Billie Eilish has revealed she enjoyed the upcoming James Bond film so much she fought through jet lag to finish it.

The 18-year-old pop star recorded the theme song for No Time To Die, becoming the youngest ever artist to perform a 007 title track.

During an appearance on Nick Grimshaw’s Radio 1 show, Brit Award winner Eilish revealed she secretly flew to London from Los Angeles in December and after landing was immediately whisked away to watch the film.

She said: “It’s so good, I was so jet-lagged, I’d just got in from LA, and it was like 8pm, which if you know, that’s a bad time to be jet-lagged, and I didn’t fall asleep through the movie. That’s all you need.

“I had no feeling of wanting to be asleep. I didn’t even go the bathroom, I held my pee for two hours, I swear.”

Pop sensation Eilish, who swept the big four categories at the Grammys last month, also revealed Daniel Craig was “really involved” in the creation of the track that will accompany his 007 swansong.

“I don’t mean to be exposing him or anything,” she said.

“I never had contact with him, I never knew what he was saying but people let me know what he was saying. Like third person stuff.”

Eilish, who won international female solo artist at the Brits on Tuesday night, revealed she and her team were first contacted by Bond producers in August.

The response to sombre ballad No Time To Die has been overwhelmingly positive and Eilish explained how she approached the song.

She said: “I know there are so many hardcore fans of Bond out there, old dudes too.

“People that have been with it forever and I know they’ve got their opinions and they totally have a right to.

“I knew there were a lot of people to please but I just really wanted to honour Bond and make it as Bond as possible and not throw away me as an artist.”

She added: “I thought we did it pretty well.”

No Time To Die will arrive in UK cinemas on April 2.
