This cover version of ‘Life On Mars’ by Yungblud got selected by NASA to play during their recent Mars landing. Yungblud gets surprised after hearing this great news, he told BBC’s The One Show: “First of all, I am as ready as a rabbit on Easter. I love space so I am here for it. I remember my 23-year-old manager rings me on the phone. It was late cos he’s in LA and it must have been midnight cos I’d had a couple of beers, so I was already kind of out there. “
He continued: “He’s like, ‘Yo, I just got off the phone with NASA’. I’m like, ‘Alright, yeah cool, what’s it about? You leaving me to go be an astronaut?’”
The singer added: “He said, ‘No you idiot, it’s about you! If the Mars rover lands successfully, they’re gonna play your cover of your favourite artist of all time, David Bowie, alongside it. I’m just like, ‘Nah man’, that just sounds like someone is just completely off their head telling you a mad story.
“It’s completely unfathomable. Someone needs to slap me so I’ll wake up.”
