Paul McCartney, Madonna, Duran Duran, Carly Simon & more featured on ‘Best of Bond’ compilation

A new album collecting the theme songs from every James Bond movie is due out on November 20.

The compilation, titled The Best of Bond…James Bond, is presented chronologically, beginning with the iconic Bond theme by The John Barry Orchestra, first heard in 1962’s Dr. No, and closing with young pop superstar Billie Eilish‘s “No Time to Die,” the title track from Daniel Craig‘s forthcoming swan song as 007.

In between are such memorable tunes as “Live and Let Die” by Paul McCartney & Wings, Shirley Bassey‘s “Goldfinger,” “Thunderball” by Tom Jones, “You Only Live Twice” by Nancy Sinatra, Carly Simon‘s “Nobody Does It Better” from The Spy Who Loved Me, “For Your Eyes Only” by Sheena Easton, Duran Duran‘s chart-topping “A View to a Kill,” and “Die Another Day” by Madonna.
