Info for Space Sessions: Songs From a Tin Can

Famed Canadian astronaut, Colonel Chris Hadfield releases his debut album, 'Space Sessions: Songs From a Tin Can.' With guitar and vocal tracks recorded in space, these sessions have the distinction of being the first 'off planet' album.

Col. Hadfield's version of Space Oddity, filmed at the International Space Station was viewed over 23 million times on YouTube. Bowie himself was a fan, posting on Facebook that it was 'possibly the most poignant version of the song ever created.

In 2013, Col. Hadfield spent five months aboard the International Space Station. In the evenings, following days full of scientific experiments, Col. Hadfield would pull out his acoustic guitar and power up GarageBand on his iPad to record guitar and vocals for songs he’d written alone, as well as with his brother and his son. Once back on Earth, Juno Award winning producer Robbie Lackritz was recruited to help finish the album. Noted musicians such as drummer Don Kerr (Ron Sexsmith), Afie Jurvanen (Bahamas) Mike O’Brien (zeus), Ben Lester (Field Report, S Carey, Tallest Man On Earth), Jay McCarrol (Hayden, Golden Dogs) and Dan Goldman (Snowblink, Hydra) were brought on board to help fulfill Hadfield’s original vision for full instrumentation on the songs.

“The serenity and grace I felt while orbiting our Earth, weightless by the window, gave a whole new place to write and perform music. I’m delighted to be able to share these completed works as a new way to help tell the stories of early space exploration,” says Col. Hadfield

Chris Hadfield
Canadian astronaut Col. Chris Hadfield is a man of many firsts. He was the first Canadian to operate the Canadarm, walk in space, and command the International Space Station. Sometimes he's even known to strum a tune.

Chris Hadfield (born August 29, 1959) was among the first four Canadians selected to become astronauts by the Canadian Space Agency and became the first Canadian to walk in space.

Chris was born in Sarnia, Ontario and attended high school in Milton, Ontario, near Toronto. He earned an engineering degree from the Royal Military College of Canada in Kingston, Ontario. He trained as a pilot in the Canadian Armed Forces and was top graduate in his Jet Training class in 1983. After flying CF-18 fighter jets for NORAD for three years, he attended the USAF Test Pilot School at Edwards Air Force Base in California. His work then turned to research and testing as an exchange officer at Strike Test Directorate with the US Navy. In 1993, Chris successfully competed with more than 5300 applicants to join the space program, and was assigned to NASA's Johnson Space Center. For 25 shuttle missions, Chris was "the voice of mission control," the Chief CAPCOM for NASA.

For his first shuttle mission (STS-74) in 1995, Chris was Mission Specialist #1 on the Atlantis, operating the Canadarm for NASA's second space shuttle mission to rendezvous with the Russian Space Station Mir. On his next mission (STS-100), as Mission Specialist on the Endeavour in 2001, Chris spent 14 hours, 54 minutes outside the craft on the first spacewalk for a Canadian. On this mission, the crew used the Canadarm2 robotic arm to support assembly of the new International Space Station.

Chris Hadfield is currently NASA's Director of Operations at the Yuri Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center in Star City, Russia.

This album contains no booklet.
