Camila Cabello has teamed up with composer legend Hans Zimmer for an unlikely collaboration.
The ‘Don’t Go Yet’ hitmaker, 25, and the Oscar-winning actress, 64, have recorded a soundtrack for the BBC series ‘Frozen Planet II’, told by Sir David Attenborough a ‘dream come true for Camilla.
The former Fifth Harmony star said: “To be able to combine my passion for the planet we live on and my music is a dream come true – not to mention working with the legend that is Hans Zimmer.
“‘Frozen Planet II’ is beautiful and Sir David’s storytelling is deeply powerful as we try to protect these incredible ecosystems from global warming. I am grateful to be able to lend my voice to such an inspiring series.
Zimmer – whose credits include ‘The Lion King’, ‘Gladiator’ and the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ franchise – shared in his own statement:
“It was extremely exciting to compose and record ‘Take Me Back Home’ with Camila and discover that her musical talents are as powerful as her voice. The team at Bleeding Fingers and I feel incredibly privileged to have the opportunity to mark such a pioneering and important monument of natural history as “Frozen Planet II”.
Zimmer reunited with Anže Rozman of Bleeding Fingers Music and producer Russell Emanuel on the project.
A release date for the six-part climate change-focused sequel to the 2011 nature documentary “Frozen Planet” has yet to be confirmed.
Mark Brownlow, Executive Producer of ‘Frozen Planet II’, added: ”Frozen Planet II’ is a celebration of wondrous wildlife that overcomes the challenges of life in the extremes. Yet today it faces the challenge even greater from climate change.
“Hans and Camila’s deeply moving original song captures the fragility of these magical kingdoms at a time when their very future hangs in the balance.”
Meanwhile, ‘Havana’ hitmaker Camila recently admitted she had a “f****** wild ride” during her time in girl group Fifth Harmony.
The pop star rose to fame in 2012 as part of the all-female troupe alongside Normani, Ally Brooke, Dinah Jane and Lauren Jauregui – but left the group in 2016 to pursue a solo career.
Acknowledging the band’s 10th anniversary last month, she sent “lots of love” to her former bandmates.
Alongside a throwback photo, she wrote: “Look at these innocent little babies. We all have armpit hair now! We had some good inside laughs/jokes and a wild ride. Lots of love and happiness to these ladies @fifthharmony . and thank you to everyone who supported us and tried so hard for us along the way x.” (sic)
Camila’s post came just a day after the rest of the girl group – who formed on the US version of ‘The X Factor’ but have been on hiatus since 2018 – each took to social media to thank the fans as they reached the milestone.
