RAYE & Hans Zimmer Team Up for New Song “Mother Nature” from BBC “Planet Earth III”
British singer-songwriter RAYE and German composer Hans Zimmer teamed up to release a new song “Mother Nature” on October 27, 2023.
The song was written for David Attenborough's long-awaited BBC Studios Natural History Unit series “Planet Earth III”.
The song received its first play during Greg James's BBC Radio 1 breakfast show.
The track was written by Rachel Keen, Hans Zimmer, Russell Emanuel, Jacob Shea, Sara Barone and Dan Smith. Produced by Russell Emanuel and Steven Kofsky.
This series will feature never-seen-before behaviour, and dive deep into the stories and animal characters which reflect the new challenges that wildlife faces in our modern, crowded world.
The eight-episode series is narrated by Sir David Attenborough and produced by BBC Studios' Natural History Unit, the makers of Blue Planet II and Planet Earth II.
Planet Earth III continues Sunday 29 October at 6.20pm on BBC One.
RAYE said, “I am a Planet Earth stan I've watched religiously for years, so having this opportunity open for me doesn't even feel real. David Attenborough and Hans Zimmer are two of my heroes, to be able to compose a song with Hans is BEYOND a wildest dream, and then to hear Sir David narrate over and in between my voice actually brings tears to my eyes. To be able to contribute in my small way to this massively important and equally beautiful documentary series is an honour and a moment I will always cherish.“
Hans Zimmer said, “Creating scores for any of the BBC's Natural History series is always an honour for me as there are no more epic stories than those occurring naturally every day in our own planet's ecosystem. For Planet Earth III it's a further privilege to bring the incredible world class talents of Bastille and RAYE to create both a wonderful soundscape for the series, and the beautiful, poignant track, Mother Nature.”
