"Take a deep breath."
BBC Earth has unveiled a prequel film for Blue Planet II featuring the much-anticipated collaboration between Radiohead and acclaimed composer Hans Zimmer. The German musician and the Thom Yorke-led band have created a beautiful reimagining of their 2011 hit "Bloom" – which serves as a euphoric companion to the treasured natural history show.
The track, known as "(Ocean) Bloom" was created with the help of the BBC Concert Orchestra. It was released to accompany a five-minute trailer showcasing some of the most "awe-inspiring" shots and highlights from the upcoming series of Blue Planet.
As the description reads, the video may even contain "several exclusive scenes that will not feature in any of the seven episodes" set to air later this year.
The seven-part natural world extravaganza arrives almost two decades after the original aired in 2001. It is believed to have taken four years to film, and includes 125 expeditions and 39 different countries, the Radio Times reports – and will be, once again, narrated by David Attenborough.
Earlier this month, Yorke said: "Bloom was inspired by the original Blue Planet series so it's great to be able to come full circle." You can watch him talking about the collaboration below.
