Hear Radiohead and Hans Zimmer’s collaboration “(Ocean) Bloom”

In collaboration with Hans Zimmer, Radiohead reworked their track “Bloom” from The King of Limbs into an epic orchestral number that seems just perfect for its intended use, in the soundtrack for Sir David Attenborough’s new BBC documentary Blue Planet II. According to Thom Yorke, “Bloom” was originally inspired by the first Blue Planet series in 2001.

“It sort of seeped into my subconscious. I found myself dreaming of these creatures quite a lot,” Yorke says in the below behind-the-scenes clip about the making of the new track.
