“Take a deep breath.”

BBC Earth has just dropped a stunning trailer for the seven-part natural world series “Blue Planet II”!

The five-minute trailer showcases several breathtaking highlight shots from the upcoming series, scheduled to air later this year. The first Blue Planet series aired back in 2001. So, the sequel was a long time coming. Much-anticipated, too.

So, apparently the series took four years to film, taking up to 125 expeditions in 39 different countries.

Check out the trailer for yourself here:

According to the description of the video (posted by BBC Earth’s YouTube channel),

This world-exclusive introduction to the show is narrated by series presenter Sir David Attenborough and set to an exclusive track developed by Hans Zimmer and Radiohead. The prequel features an array of some of the most awe-inspiring shots and highlights from the new series, as well as several exclusive scenes that will not feature in any of the seven episodes which are set for UK broadcast on BBC One later this year.

Oh yes, you read that right. Hans Zimmer and Radiohead collaborated on the track you just heard. (Also, they had the help of the BBC Concert Orchestra). “(Ocean) Bloom” is a re-imagining of their collaborative track “Bloom” from back in 2011, and really seems to fit the scenic, oceanic beauty of the trailer and the series itself.

Thom Yorke, leader of Radiohead, commented on the track earlier this month. “Bloom was inspired by the original Blue Planet series so it’s great to be able to come full circle.”

You can learn more about the collaboration via this clip posted to BBC Earth’s Twitter:
