Singer Billie Eilish and her brother Finneas won the Grammy in the Best Song Written For Visual Media category for their James Bond theme from the yet-to-be-released No Time to Die.

This is the first time in the Grammys' history that a track from an unreleased film won the award. In the past, the song, titled No Time to Die, would have been disqualified, but the Grammy soundtrack committee tweaked its rules amid the coronavirus pandemic, which had a huge impact on movie release calender.

No Time to Die, the 25th film in the James Bond franchise, was initially supposed to arrive in theatres in April 2020, but was pushed several times amid the pandemic. The film is now slated to hit screens on October 8.

Eilish, the youngest musician to write a James Bond theme song, released the track last year on February 13. The singer-songwriter, who also performed during the 63rd annual show, accepted the award during the pre-show.

Other winners in the visual media category were filmmaker Taika Waititi for best compilation soundtrack for 2019's black comedy, JoJo Rabbit, and Hildur Guðnadóttir for the Joker score.
