Astronaut Chris Hadfield’s New Album Was Recorded In Space – You Can Hear The First Song Now

Recording an album can be hard enough here on earth, but Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield took it to another level by recording tracks for his new album, “Space Session: Songs From a Tin Can”, while onboard the International Space Station. The recording was more difficult because the zero-gravity conditions lead to tongue and vocal chord swelling – making it more difficult to control his voice. Many of the songs were tracked in his sleeping pod using a microphone attached to his iPad. The final songs were produced, cleaned up and filled in back here on earth. Two of the songs have been pre-released, including this official lyric video for the song “Feet Up.”

Chris is also credited with being the first person to film a music video in space when he covered the David Bowie classic, “Space Oddity.”
