Bastille share official video for Hans Zimmer version of ‘Pompeii

Their collaboration with the iconic composer is in celebration of the track’s tenth anniversary.

Bastille have today shared the full video for ‘Pompeii MMXXIII’ - a special 10th anniversary edition of their breakthrough single, recorded in collaboration with multi-award-winning composer Hans Zimmer. The defining track of Bastille’s 2013 debut album ‘Bad Blood’, ‘Pompeii’ has now been reworked to feature soaring instrumentation courtesy of the BBC National Orchestra of Wales.

Of his contribution to the updated version, Hans Zimmer has said: It’s been proven time and time again that a beautiful, crafted song by a great band can have many lives and Pompeii is a shining example of this. Working hand in hand with Bastille and my team at Bleeding Fingers has been an exhilarating experience and an honour to be part of this remarkable journey. I’m so excited to share this rendition with you all!”
