Radiohead and Hans Zimmer are teaming up to create a new track for Blue Planet II.

The BBC One natural history programme, narrated by Sir David Attenborough, is known for its classical arrangements.

The collaborative piece will be a orchestral reworking of Radiohead s ˜Bloom . Thom Yorke will be re-recording the vocals and the track is produced by Russell Emanuel of Bleeding Fingers Music, who gained a BAFTA & Emmy-nomination for his work on BBC s Planet Earth II.

Titled ˜(ocean) bloom , the track will premiere at midday on September 27 and will also feature in the five-minute prequel for the series. The prequel will debut at the World Premiere of Blue Planet II at London s BFI Imax on September 27.

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,  Thom Yorke said of the project.

Hans is a prodigious composer who effortlessly straddles several musical genres so it was liberating for us all to work with such a talent and see how he wove the sound of the series and Bloom together. 

Hans Zimmer added: Bloom appears to have been written ahead of its time as it beautifully reflects the jaw-dropping lifeforms and seascapes viewers are introduced to in Blue Planet II. Working with Thom, Jonny and the boys has been a wonderful diversion and it s given me an interesting peek into their musical world. They ve been incredible to work with and I hope everyone likes the track. 

:[ ˜(ocean) bloom] is an incredibly powerful companion to the scenes we ve spent years capturing,  Blue Planet II s Executive Producer James Honeyborne said. What a great curtain-raiser to the upcoming series that we just can t wait to share with everyone. 

Blue Planet II will air later on this year.
