Radiohead have collaborated with Hans Zimmer, the Oscar-winning composer for The Dark Knight, The Lion King and Gladiator, on a piece of music that will soundtrack the BBC’s Blue Planet II.

The track is an orchestral reworking of Bloom with Thom Yorke re-recording his vocals for the new version. “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,” Yorke said.

Zimmer described the project as “a wonderful diversion”, and said that Bloom “beautifully reflects the jaw-dropping lifeforms and seascapes” in the show.

Blue Planet II airs later this year with the new version of Bloom accompanying a five-minute prequel for the series on 27 September.
