Bjork and legendary broadcaster David Attenborough have teamed up for a music documentary.

Attenborough and Bjork: The Nature of Music looks at the evolution of music, our relationship with music and how technology could impact this relationship in the future.

Directed by Louise Hooper, the film is set to be broadcast on Channel 4 in the UK, reports Hollywood Reporter.

It has been made by Pulse Films – who were also behind Katy Perry: Part of Me and Blur film No Distance Left to Run. The film's executive producer, Lucas Ochoa, has said of the documentary: "Born from Bjork's revolutionary music project [2011's 'Biophilia'] we are thrilled to be able to document this incredible journey with her; she is undeniably one of the most iconic figures in popular culture and truly pushes boundaries like no other artist does."

Bjork's multi-media 'Biophilia' project will feature strongly in the film, and Attenborough will show how music exists in the natural world, using footage of the lyre bird, reed warbler and blue whales.

Bjork and Attenborough collaborated last year, as the BBC presenter and naturalist provided an introduction and narration to Bjork's three-week Manchester International Festival residency, her first UK shows in three years. Bjork has declared her admiration for Attenborough in a Rolling Stone interview, describing him as "my rock star".
