NASA has announced plans for a new song by will.i.am to make its debut from the surface of Mars via the Curiosity rover.
The single, “Reach for the Stars,” will be transmitted on Tuesday to Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., as part of an educational event to share findings about Mars with students.
Wait, seriously? We’re beaming music back from Mars and we can’t do better than the man responsible for “My Humps”? Isn’t Paul McCartney still alive? Could no one convince Kanye West that having the first song BROADCAST FROM MARS was a worthwhile enough pursuit to muscle his way in there?
And for heaven’s sake, did everyone just up and forget about David Bowie?
