The song originally appeared on the original ‘Planet Earth’ series, from 2006. Streaming below, their new edit is an even more epic, percussion-filled twist on what came before. And it’s the perfect companion for watching an army of racer snakes speed towards a lonely sea iguana as it makes a fruitless approach for safe land. Or footage of capybaras. Nothing beats the capybaras.
“Sigur Rós are proud to be associated with Planet Earth II and its all-important mission to hold us rapt in understanding of, and respect for, this endlessly fascinating, utterly surprising and ultimately fragile place we are lucky enough to call home for a short while,” the band say in a statement.
‘Planet Earth II’ will debut on BBC America from 28th January.
