Nature documentary When Björk met Attenborough: The Nature of Music will be released on DVD on May 5 via Bjork's record label, One Little Indian.

The show uniting Bjork and legendary broadcaster David Attenborough was originally aired on Channel 4 last summer. When Björk met Attenborough: 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 sees Björk explore humans' unique relationship with music and how technology might transform the way we engage with it in the future.

Björk's multimedia 'Biophilia' project features strongly in the film, and Attenborough shows how music exists in the natural world, using footage of the lyre bird, reed warbler and blue whales. The film's executive producer, Lucas Ochoa, has previously said of the documentary: "Born from Björk'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."

Björk and Attenborough first collaborated in 2011 when the BBC presenter and naturalist provided an introduction and narration to Bjork's three-week Manchester International Festival residency. Bjork has previously declared her admiration for Attenborough in a Rolling Stone interview, describing him as "my rock star".
