Complementing the "No Time To Die" movie and soundtrack release, Decca will also release "Bond 25" album, to mark this 25th film in the long-running and much-loved series. This album includes new arrangements of the 25 iconic title themes, which span close to 60 years of cinema. Newly recorded by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra at Abbey Road Studio in London, they include ‘From Russia With Love,’ ‘Diamonds Are Forever,’ ‘Live And Let Die,’ ‘GoldenEye’ and ‘Die Another Day.’
Just a guess, but since the timing seemed to want to coincide with the release of the new film, I'd guess the makes of the CD want to wait for the revised release date and sell in the wake of the film.
CD / LP / iTunes - November 13, 2020 - Decca Records:
The album features new orchestral arrangements of all official James Bond title themes newly recorded with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra at Abbey Road Studios in London. The RPO's recording of Billie Eilish’s No Time to Die will already be available digitally tomorrow.

I don't think people will feel comfortable going back to the theater, even if the coronavirus infections decline. I know that I personally would not go to a theater and none of my friends I talk to would either. I had already started going less when I kept encountering people texting, playing video games or acting like fools in the theater. I would much prefer they release it to streaming and I would gladly pay a fair price to see it in the comfort of my own living room. I'm not sure exactly how movie industry profit margins work, but I would think if the studio cuts out the middle man, they could make the same or more profit from people purchasing at home on Prime or elsewhere.
