In response to overwhelming public interest, Raye and Hans Zimmer have unveiled their evocative joint effort, “Mother Nature”.

The song made its worldwide premiere on Greg James’s BBC Radio 1 morning program and was also featured in an extended preview of the eagerly awaited TV series. The trailer showcases mesmerizing footage of diverse wildlife from around the world, captured over a span of five years. Hans Zimmer, Raye, and the acclaimed composer group, Bleeding Fingers Music, collaborated on “Mother Nature”.

Hans Zimmer added, “Working on scores for the BBC’s Natural History series is always special. There’s no grander tale than nature’s own. For ‘Planet Earth III’, collaborating with talents like Bastille and Raye has been a privilege. Together, we’ve crafted the touching song, ‘Mother Nature’.”

Raye, who recently enthralled audiences on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, has also launched a live album titled My 21st Century Symphony. This was recorded during her sold-out performance at London’s prestigious Royal Albert Hall, where she was joined by The Heritage Orchestra and The Flames Collective youth gospel choir.

Seven years post the Emmy and BAFTA Award-winning Planet Earth II, the upcoming Planet Earth III promises to unveil the marvels of our world. The series, scored by Hans Zimmer, Jacob Shea, and Sara Barone, emphasizes the urgent need to conserve and rejuvenate nature. The concluding episode will spotlight the brave individuals worldwide dedicated to safeguarding our planet’s wildlife and vital ecosystems.
