The collaboration on “Take Me Back Home” marks the first time a new song has been written to support a BBC One natural history show.

BBC Radio 1 will globally debut “Take Me Back Home” on the Greg James Show on August 26 with a little help from Cabello and Zimmer themselves ahead of the Frozen Planet II first-look trailer’s debut at 12:00 p.m. UK BST that same day on BBC Earth and BBC Studios Facebook, Instagram, TikTok and YouTube accounts.

In putting together the orchestration, Zimmer also worked with long-term collaborators — arranger Anže Rozman and producer Russell Emanuel for Bleeding Fingers Music. He says, “It was hugely exciting composing and recording ‘Take Me Back Home’ with Camila and discovering that her musical talents are as powerful as her voice.”

Yet today it faces the even greater challenge of climate change.

Camila Cabello Teams Up with Willow for New Dark Pop Track “Psychofreak”

Camila Cabello has a willow future hit on her hands…

The 25-year-old Mexican & Cuban singer has joined voices with Willow’s for their collaborative track “Psychofreak” and the song’s music video.

Camila Cabello

To kick off the release of her third studio album, Familia, Cabello dropped the video for the dark pop track on Friday (April 8).

In the video, Cabello and Willow are at the mercy of a liminal space consisting of turquoise and green-painted walls, paneled office ceilings and carpeted flooring. As Cabello begins contemplating her many anxieties and lack of connection with others, the walls in the space start to shift. Suddenly the singer is perched on the walls and ceiling, highlighting the inner turmoil she feels.

“Feelin’ like a psychofreak sometimes/ Tryna get connected, no Wi-Fi/ Tell me that you love me, are you lying?/ Give me lemonade, I give you limes/ House in the hills is a house of cards/ Blink and the fairytale falls apart/ Sorry, didn’t mean to get so dark/ Maybe I’m an alien, Earth is hard,” Cabello sings in the chorus of the track.

The song also sees the former Fifth Harmony member discussing her 2016 split from the group in the track’s second verse: “Everybody says they miss the old me/ I been on this ride since I was 15/ I don’t blame the girls for how it went down, down.” Cabello confirmed the lyrics were about her leaving the group in an April 7 interview with Reuters, and said she is in a “really good place” with the other members.

Willow, meanwhile, chimes in for an assist on the downtempo tune, and gives an angsty edge to the song, singing about her inability to open herself up to love from a partner and relax. “Wish I could be like everyone/ But I’m not like anyone,” she laments.
