Brian May Partners With NASA On New Solo SingleDecember 23, 2018
Queen guitarist Brian May has partnered with NASA to launch a new solo single, titled “New Horizons.”
“New Horizons,” will be launched from the NASA mission control center in Greenbelt, Maryland, on New Year’s Day. The song is a personal tribute from May to the ongoing NASA New Horizons mission, which on New Year’s Day 2019 will achieve the most distant spacecraft flyby in history, in an encounter with a remote Kuiper Belt Object named Ultima Thule.
“This project has energized me in a new way,” May said in a statement. “For me, it’s been an exciting challenge to bring two sides of my life together – astronomy and music. It was Alan Stern, the Project Instigator of this amazing NASA mission, who threw down the glove last May. He asked if I could come up with a theme for Ultima Thule which could be played as the probe reached this new destination.”
“New Horizons,” written by May and Don Black, will be May’s first new solo single since “Why Don’t We Try Again,” taken from his Another World album in 1998.
