Time’ is one of Hans Zimmer’s most well-known creations, and now it receives a new version together with Alan Walker, who fulfills a life-long dream of closely collaborating with his musical hero.


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.

In Hans Zimmer’s words:

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.

In Alan Walker’s words:

“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!”
