'A Glorious Dawn' is a tribute to fellow astronomer Carl Sagan

Jack White‘s Third Man Records is set to release a seven-inch single featuring a guest appearance from physicist Stephen Hawking.

‘A Glorious Dawn’, which is out on November 9, is an arrangement of spoken words by astronomer Carl Sagan, originally taken from his award-winning 1980s television series ‘Cosmos: A Personal Voyage’.

Composer John Boswell edited Sagan‘s dialect, before coupling it with snippets of Hawking‘s voice and adding other instruments.
