Mark Ronson’s demo track for No Time To Die didn’t make the cut for the new Bond film, but the producer is hoping that the song might flex its action hero bonafides by helping save democracy.
Released as part of Good Music to Avert the Collapse of American Democracy, Volume 2, a 77-song compilation featuring music by David Byrne, Pearl Jam, Andrew Bird, My Morning Jacket and many more, “No Time To Die (Bond Demo)” is a collaboration with songwriter Ilsey Juber.
Made up of entirely of previously-unreleased recordings, the album is available now exclusively via Bandcamp, with all proceeds from benefitting Voting Rights Lab. Released on September 4, the first edition of Good Music to Avert the Collapse of American Democracy raised over $250,000 for the voting rights organization.
In other 007 news, yesterday (October 1) Billie Eilish released a chic black and white video for her James Bond theme song, “No Time To Die.” Originally slated for release this past April, the film comes out in North America on November 20.
