Famed composer Hans Zimmer has teamed up with renowned band Radiohead for “(Ocean) Bloom,” a reworking of the band’s  opening track for the upcoming BBC docuseries, Blue Planet II. The collaborative effort is a stripped down version of the song with its driving bassline and sporadic percussions removed in favor of highlighted strings, piano, and Thom Yorke‘s vocals. Towards the song’s crescendo, the track swells into a lush cinematic experience delivered by the award-winning composer.

In a BBC interview revolving around the project, Zimmer and Radiohead’s Yorke and Jonny Greenwood touched on the collaboration, saying: “It sort of seeped into my subconscious. I found myself dreaming of these creatures quite a lot. When we came to do all those weird recordings for The King of Limbs, it must have been in there. It started with Colin [Greenwood's] bassline and ‘Open your mouth wide.’” Zimmer added, “In a funny way, I was trying to be respectful and not ruin the song, if you know what I mean. If somebody hands you somebody else’s work, there’s responsibility and respect that comes with it.” Check out the videos below and share your thoughts in the comments.
