Reworked from Radiohead’s 2011 track “Bloom,” “(ocean) bloom” was recorded for the upcoming new installment of the BBC’s Planet Earth nature documentary series, Planet Earth: Blue Planet II.

“‘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,” said frontman Thom Yorke of the new track. “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.”

“(Ocean) bloom” soundtrack a five-minute prequel for Planet Earth: Blue Planet II. The series airs on BBC America in early 2018.
