Radiohead & Hans Zimmer Release “Blue Planet II” Collaboration

first_imgRadiohead and legendary film composer Hans Zimmer have teamed up to score the soundtrack for the BBC’s natural history series Blue Planet II. The collaboration, which they call “(ocean) bloom,” is a reinvention of Radiohead’s 2011 King Of Limbs “Bloom.” Today, the track reveals itself in a five-minute prequel to the Blue Planet II series. The track, featuring new vocals by Thom Yorke, was inspired by the sounds of the sea, and recorded by the BBC Concert Orchestra. Radiohead’s original “‘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,” explains Yorke in a recent press release.“It sort of seeped into my subconscious. I found myself dreaming of these creatures quite a lot,” Yorke explained in a BBC interview. “When we came to do all those weird recordings for The King of Limbs, it must have been in there. It started with Colin [Greenwood’s] bassline and ‘Open your mouth wide.’”Zimmer, who composed the scores for The Lion King, Gladiator, Pirates of the Caribbean, The Dark Knight Trilogy, Inception, Interstellar, and so many more added, “In a funny way, I was trying to be respectful and not ruin the song, if you know what I mean. If somebody hands you somebody else’s work, there’s responsibility and respect that comes with it.”James Honeyborne, executive producer of the documentary, said the collaboration is “an incredibly powerful companion to the scenes we’ve spent [four] years capturing.” The new series will once-again feature Sir David Attenborough as the narrator, and will include footage of newly discovered and never-before filmed creatures, including a new species of crab with a hairy chest – “nicknamed the ‘Hoff crab’” after Baywatch star David Hasselhoff.You can listen to the full, uninterrupted track here at the 51:22 mark.

Benik Afobe glad to finally land in the Premier League

first_imgNew Bournemouth signing Benik Afobe has praised MK Dons manager Karl Robinson for helping to shape his career. Press Association Afobe was unveiled as a Bournemouth player on Monday after moving from Wolves, but it was with the Dons – for whom he scored 19 goals in a six-month loan spell – that he showed what he was made of. “I thank Karl Robinson a lot at MK Dons, it was a bit of a stop-start career with my injuries, I went on loan and some of them were pretty unsuccessful, but then I went to him at MK Dons and he gave me a lot of confidence,” Afobe said. center_img “He used to have one-to-one meetings with me after training, telling me what I was doing right and also what I was doing wrong and what I can improve. “I remember one conversation with him and he said ‘in 18 months time you could be playing in the Premier League’ – here I am a bit less than that. Afobe started his career at Arsenal and was expected to make the Arsenal first team before injury scuppered his chances and he ended up being sent out on loan to help him back to full fitness. He has now landed in the Premier League and believes the injuries have improved him as a person and a player. “Before (my injuries), I was always a young player who had a chance and life was pretty good and then, just when I thought I was about to break through, I had a career-threatening injury and it took me years to get back to my best. “Now it means more being here than it would have done if I had played in the Premier League at 19”. Manager Eddie Howe has described Afobe as “strong” and “a handful” and the new boy now wants to vindicate the faith. “Since I was six I have always dreamed about playing in the Premier League and the manager here has given me the opportunity to repay him by doing well for the team and scoring as many goals as I can,” he said. “I am very excited, he is working hard here and his philosophy is great. “I have spoke to a few of the players here and they have said that since he came in they have all improved so I am going to keep listening to the manager both on and off the pitch because I know he is going to advise correctly.” last_img read more
