NASA Astronaut Michael Fossum has become the first people in the universe outside of ZZ Top inner circle to hear the band’s new song ‘Flyin’ High’.
Fossum is a good friend of ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill and Frank Beard. He was on his way to work when he heard the song. The thing is, his workplace is the Soyuz TMA-02M spacecraft.
Fossum took off from the Bailonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan with the sneak preview in his player for his ‘commute to work’. The song certainly has appropriate lyrics ”Flyin’ high, I’m gonna touch the sky’.
‘Flyin’ High’ is expected to be one of the tracks from the next ZZ Top album, their first since 2006. Rick Rubin produced the yet-to-be named album.
Astronaut Fossum is aboard the Russian spacecraft with Russian cosmonaut Segei Volkov and Stoshi Furukawa from Japan’s JAXA space agency
