Labrinth: ‘I want to cover David Bowie in space’

'Earthquake' star fancies recording his own rendition of 'Space Oddity' in Earth's orbit…

Labrinth has revealed that he wants to record a David Bowie cover in outer space.

In an interview with Capital FM, the ‘Earthquake’ star said that he would like to become the first artist to record a song in the Earth’s orbit and thought that the Thin White Duke’s classic track ‘Space Oddity’ would be the perfect material for the project.

“I love that – that sounds amazing,” he said when talking about the possibility of recording material in space, before adding:

I would make a record, I would make a special record just for that. Or maybe do a cover of ‘ground control to major Tom’. That would be insane.

Labrinth isn’t the first artist to be struck by intergalactic inspiration – previously, Muse‘s Matt Bellamy and Foo Fighters‘ Dave Grohl have both stated their ambitions to boldly go where no musician has gone before and record a song in outer space.

Last week (March 20), Labrinth revealed that his new single ‘Last Time’ is inspired by French electric duo Daft Punk. You can watch the video for the track, which is the third single to be taken from his new album ‘Electric Earth’, released April 2, by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking.
