Astronauts, are you ready for lift-off?
Simple Plan’s “Astronaut” is about to get played among the Milky Way! This December, Canadian Space Agency astronaut Chris Hadfield will begin a 6-month mission aboard the International Space Station, during which time he will become Canada’s first Commander of the ISS! Mr. Hadfield is a musician and a huge music fan (he’ll even be playing and recording when he has free time in space!) and has made a promise to Simple Plan that he’ll play “Astronaut” while he’s floating amongst the stars.
Mr. Hadfield says “Canadians have written some of my favourite music. I look forward to floating weightless…playing and singing songs from Lightfoot to Simple Plan. A wonderful way to be close to home. Thanks Simple Plan for taking me on tour with you! I look forward to playing Astronaut in orbit on my own round-the-world tour. I won’t want to come down!
Check out this video message that Simple Plan made for Mr. Hadfield while in his hometown of Sarnia, ON!
