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.

According to Thirdmanrecords.com, the release is timed to coincide with what would have been Sagan's 75th birthday. He died in 1996.
