Trending: Update: Microsoft Teams and other Office 365 services back online after untimely outage

Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield went viral a couple years ago with his remake of David Bowie’s “Space Oddity,” recorded on the International Space Station, with over 26 million views.

Now, he is dropping his album “Space Sessions: Songs from a Tin Can,” every song on it recorded while he was aboard ISS:

Recording an entire album in space can’t be easy, as Hadfield tells Canada A.M. He had to set up a “makeshift studio” in zero gravity amid cramped conditions. He ended up recording it using Apple’s GarageBand on his laptop.

The first-ever Canadian commander aboard ISS, Hadfield spent 144 days up there.

You can find the music and other related merch on his site here. Hadfield told Canada A.M. that proceeds from sales will go toward music education in Canada.

Here’s a YouTube video of a new track “Daughter of My Sins.”
