In collaboration with Hans Zimmer, Radiohead took their track “Bloom” from The King of Limbs and turned it into an epic orchestral number. The resulting track fits its intended use perfectly, 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 behind-the-scenes video below.
