Billie Eilish debuted, ‘No Time To Die’, the new theme song for the latest James Bond film of the same name, at the BRIT Awards last week. Co-written by Billie and her brother Finneas, it also legendary composer Hans Zimmer’s first Bond theme. Now John Grimes of Jedward has released a gorgeous acoustic cover of the song, available on the JedwardTV YouTube channel.
First uploaded to the @planetjedward Twitter account, John later said on Instagram Live that the cover was done in two takes, and recorded straight to his phone, with no post-editing or studio mics. Accompanied only by his Gibson guitar, John’s cover is a perfect showcase for his vocal talent, which in addition to singing in his own tone, also involved falsetto, and high notes which he reached with ease.

It’s been a whole decade since Dublin twins John and Edward, known professionally as Jedward, first strode onto the stage in Season 6 of the UK reality tv show, X Factor.
Jedward are still going strong a decade down the track, and released their fourth album, ‘Voice Of A Rebel’, in June this year, after signing a 5 year recording contract with Universal Music Singapore.

Just think about how many acts have come and gone in that time…
They’re the living example of the lyrics from one of their songs, ‘Respect Your Dreams’:
Respect your dreams
Go live your life
Don’t write yourself off
Put up a fight.
Oh protect your heart
From those who hate
Respect your dreams
It’s not to late
Even better are these lines in album title track, ‘Voice Of A Rebel’,
Yeah, the truth it lingers in our bones
Oh, we know our worth that’s why we’re fighting on
Yeah, they’ll never tell us who we’re gonna be
Oh, we’re marching on to our own beat

2019 marks #10YearsOfJedward: 10 years since the identical twins from Dublin, Ireland, first leapt into the public consciousness with their appearance on The X Factor. They commemorate it with the release of their long-awaited fourth album, the name of which, and artwork, has been revealed today.
The pair fought a hard-earned battle through to the finals, finishing in 6th place in 2009. They’ve since gone on to release 3 albums and 12 non-album singles, as well as making countless television appearances, including hosting several series of their own. They’ve had cameos in 4 films, and represented Ireland twice at the Eurovision Song Contest, with their 2011 8th place still the highest position for Ireland since 2000 – making it effectively their country’s best result this century.
Jedward, real names John and Edward Grimes, will release ‘Voice Of A Rebel’ this summer. They will be appearing on ITVs ‘Loose Women’ today.
Recorded in Los Angeles over the past 18 months, it’s the first album of songs entirely written and produced by the duo themselves. John and Edward also have complete creative control over the release, artwork, styling, and videos. Since becoming independent artists in 2013 they have released 12 non-album singles, starting with ‘Free Spirit’ in 2014. Their most recent release was ‘Golden Years’, in November last year.
Jedward will be touring the U.K. next month with two dates in each of Manchester’s historic Factory, the Camden Assembly in London, and Glasgow’s Garage. Tickets are available here.
Two time Eurovision finalists Jedward will also be performing at The Sunshine Festival in August. Tickets and further information here.
Jedward, real names John and Edward Grimes, will also be releasing their fourth album. As yet the name has not been released, but a series of tweets from the Dublin twins suggested that there are at least 16, possibly more, tracks on the album. All have been written and produced by John and Edward.
The concerts will be between May 10 and 16 inclusive, with two dates in each of Manchester, London, and Glasgow. Dublin dates are as not yet confirmed.
Tickets go on sale next Friday, 15 March, at 9am, and will be available from Ticketweb.
Jedward have released no fewer than 12 singles since 2014, all of which have are self-penned. The May tour will be the first time the pair have performed headline shows in the UK since their 25th birthday concert, at London’s O2 Academy, Islington, in 2016.
