Astronaut Chris Hadfield has become the first person ever to record a music video in space, filming his version of David Bowie‘s “Space Oddity” from the International Space Station.

The video, which you can see above, was shot in space and sees Commander Hadfield singing the songs lyrics “Here am I sitting in a tin can, far above the world, Planet Earth is blue, And there’s nothing left to do” as he floats in zero gravity. The track has a full full arrangement, recorded by producer Joe Corcoran and piano arranger Emm Gryner back on earth but the guitar and vocals were recorded live in space.

Tweeting about his video, Hadfield wrote: “With deference to the genius of David Bowie, here’s Space Oddity, recorded on Station. A last glimpse of the World.”




Meanwhile, David Bowie’s new video for “The Next Day” has been criticised by the Catholic Church.
