Two legendary artists come together for one epic soundtrack.
It’s a match made in heaven, with the best of two different worlds coming together to create an epic piece of music. The resulting piece is an orchestral reworking of ‘Bloom’, Radiohead’s song from their 2011 album The King of Limbs, and will appear during the prequel to the BBC’s nature documentary.
In an accompanying video, Thom Yorke, Jonny Greenwood, and Zimmer discuss the collaboration. “It sort of seeped into my subconscious,” Yorke says of the original Blue Planet’s influence on Radiohead’s 2011 album King of Limbs. “I found myself dreaming of these creatures quite a lot.”
Zimmer added: “I was trying to be respectful. If somebody hands you somebody else’s work, there’s responsibility and respect that comes with it.”
What do you think of this collaboration? Worth the hype? We certainly think so.
