Radiohead and Hans Zimmer preview an orchestral re-imagined version of the Radiohead song ‘Bloom’ from 2011 album The King of Limbs, now dubbed as ‘(ocean) bloom‘, the new version sees Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke rerecord vocals, with production duties handled by Russell Emanuel of Bleeding Fingers Music – the company which also crafted the BAFTA & Emmy-nominated score to BBC America’s Planet Earth II.
Inspired after viewing the first Blue Planet installment, Thom Yorke comments: “That was me lying on the sofa trying to go back to sleep when I’ve been up too late with my son—7 o’clock in the morning, when he was small—and it coming in and out of my subconscious….they managed to go so deep that they’d discovered all these creatures we didn’t know about—that whole thing for me, the idea of discovering life that humanity doesn’t know about, is to me one of the most profound concepts.”
