Wow, what a collaboration of minds. Radiohead and Hans Zimmer combine with Blue Planet and Sir David Attenborough to create (ocean) bloom, a reinterpretation of the bands song ‘Bloom’.
Commenting on the collaboration Thom Yorke and Hans had a few words to say to the BBC…
“Bloom was inspired by the original Blue Planet series so it’s great to be able to come full circle with the song and reimagine it for this incredible landmark’s sequel. Hans is a prodigious composer who effortlessly straddles several musical genres so it was liberating for us all to work with such a talent and see how he wove the sound of the series and Bloom together.” (Thom Yorke)
“Bloom appears to have been written ahead of its time as it beautifully reflects the jaw-dropping lifeforms and seascapes viewers are introduced to in Blue Planet II. Working with Thom, Jonny and the boys has been a wonderful diversion and it’s given me an interesting peek into their musical world. They’ve been incredible to work with and I hope everyone likes the track.” (Hans Zimmer)
It doesn’t get much better than a Grammy winning Band an Oscar winning composer and a Knight of the Realm all in the same room together!
