The news comes just a week after it was announced that Zimmer would be assuming scoring duties for the film, which is also set to feature original music from Billie Eilish. In a brief statement to NME, Marr expressed his elation at the prospect of being involved with the project, saying “Part of the legacy of the Bond films is iconic music, so I’m very happy to be bringing my guitar to No Time To Die.”
Marr and Zimmer have previously united on the scores for Inception and The Amazing Spiderman 2, while Marr has performed at selected dates from Zimmer’s live score tour in recent years. Needless to say, we’re very excited to see Daniel Craig do his thing to some jangly indie rock guitars.
