You’ve got to admit that bringing in Hans Zimmer for No Time to Die was an inspired choice, the score perfectly complements the rich tapestry of drama, thrills (Check out our 4-star IMAX review) and even the old-school puns in true Bond style, and then some!
With this in mind, it’s a great pleasure to announce that multi-award-winning composer Hans Zimmer’s soundtrack from Decca, for the 25th James Bond film No Time To Die, today peaked at No 7 in the top 10 of the Official UK Album Charts making this the highest-charting soundtrack to date from the James Bond franchise and (incredibly) the highest-charting album for Zimmer – Order it here, now! – and it also hit top spot in the Official Classical Artists UK chart.
The soundtrack features music from guitarist Johnny Marr and Billie Eilish whose title track No Time To Die, co-written with brother Finneas O’Connell, topped the Official UK Singles Chart in its first week of release last year. Of this record-breaking news, Zimmer had this to say:
“It’s incredible to think that we effectively launched this album at the Brits in 2019! It feels fantastic that the movie and its music are finally receiving such a rapturous and record-breaking reception. If you’re going to make chart history, you might as well do it with James Bond! I’m delighted”
No Time To Die had its theatrical release on 30th September 2021 in the UK through Universal Pictures International and has smashed UK box office records with the highest opening UK weekend takings of any James Bond film. Beating Skyfall and Spectre, which sit at numbers two and three in the all-time UK box office chart.
