A NASA astronaut just wrote and recorded a song with The Tragically Hip. From Space.

Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield started a thing when he took a guitar up to the International Space Station and began to record songs. Now we have Drew Feustel, another resident of the ISS–he’s commander of Expedition 56–who got together with the Tragically Hip (remotely, obviously) to record a song at an altitude of 408 km while travelling at almost 8 km/sec.

Drew was born in the US but is now a Canadian and he’s been friends with The Hip for a while. He and bassist Gord Sinclair wrote, recorded, and perform a new song entitled “All Around the World.”

NASA first published the video on Sunday. Take a look. (Via Global News)
