Chris Hadfield, Ed Robertson perform first Space-Earth duet
London: A Canadian astronaut teamed up with Barenaked Ladies singer Ed Robertson for a performance that is out of this world.
Astronaut Chris Hadfield recorded a song with Robertson from 250 miles above our planet aboard the International Space Station .
`I.S.S (Is Somebody Singing?)` is the first track ever to be written and recorded in space.
Hadfield strums his guitar and sings on the International Space station while Robertson has his feet firmly on the ground.
The astronaut`s performance was transmitted via satellite where it was mixed at a studio in Toronto
Back on Earth, the Wexford Gleeks choir, from Wexford School for Arts, sang alongside Ed Robertson in the studio.
The pair wrote it together before the collaboration was recorded.
"We`ve been pals for a long time and it just seemed like a fun thing to do," Robertson told CBC Music, the digital music streaming service behind the project.
Commander Hadfield has been writing songs in space and is now planning to record an entire album.
