HANS ZIMMER AND ALAN WALKER RELEASE “TIME“ REMIX VIA SONY MUSIC
Two generations of musical excellence have connected, as multi-platinum artist, DJ and producer Alan Walker releases his own rendition of the iconic musical piece that is “Time” by his long-time idol composer-star Hans Zimmer.
Ever since the release of his debut single Faded in 2015, 22-year-old Alan Walker has taken the world by storm. Although he is known for his distinct sound and characteristic image, it is less known that some of Walker’s biggest musical inspirations are from film scores and soundtracks – especially the likes of Hans Zimmer. Growing up on music from Zimmer’s genre-defining scores in films such as “The Dark Knight”, “Pirates of the Caribbean”, “Interstellar” or “Inception”, it is clear that this genre of music has left its mark on Alan’s own musical work. The Norwegian artist has gone on to create an extensive following, with his YouTube channel being the world’s 10th biggest music channel. Now boasting more than 50 billion audio and video streams, Alan Walker is considered one of the major superstars within the electronic music scene.
With the release of his very own interpretation of “Time”, arguably one of Hans Zimmer’s most quintessential creations, Alan Walker will now fulfill a life-long dream of closely collaborating with his musical hero. Having previously been gifted an autographed copy of the sheet notes for “Time”, the two musicians first met in Barcelona in April 2019 during one of the concerts of the “World of Hans Zimmer – A Symphonic Celebration” tour. The meeting led to conversations about a potential collaboration, which will now see the light of day.
“Growing up, I never imagined that I would become an artist and turn my passion into a career. And a lot of the things I’ve been fortunate enough to experience over the past years, are truly surreal. But collaborating with Hans Zimmer on this, is an out-of-body experience on a whole different level. Everyone who knows me, knows that I’m a huge fan of Hans Zimmer. His work has played a big part of my musical journey. Especially “Time”, which is probably my favorite song ever. The fact that my version of it is the first-ever official remix release of any Hans Zimmer work, is mind-blowing. I’m as grateful as I can possibly be for this opportunity!” Alan Walker
Hans Zimmer originally composed “Time” for the soundtrack of Christopher Nolan’s Academy Awards winning box office hit “Inception”, which was released in July 2010. 10 years later, Alan Walker and Hans Zimmer proudly present a version of “Time” in a way the audience surely have not heard before. Based on “Time (Orchestra Version)” from the “The World of Hans Zimmer” album the remix will be accompanied with the first ever music video for a Hans Zimmer recording. Later this year, coinciding with the 10-year anniversary of “Inception” in July, an exclusive vinyl single of “Time” will also be made available.
“Working alongside someone whose career was influenced by my early work is incredibly humbling. I am proud to be partnering with Alan Walker to release his remix of ‘Time,’ a composition that means so much to me, and couldn’t be more excited to share it with the world. Now, more than ever, we must continue to inspire young minds to be the leaders of tomorrow – I hope this will be just that.” Hans Zimmer
