Rammstein recorded a new album during the pandemic and now they're gearing up to release new music! Specifically one song, and to an astronaut currently aboard the International Space Station. Rammstein drummer Christoph Schneider played the song over a Zoom call to French Astronaut Thomas Pesquet, which Schneider said was an honor for himself and for the band.
I guess this also means the new Rammstein record is ready to go, right?
"Space is calling! I had the honor to speak with ISS astronaut @thom_astro on behalf of @rammsteinofficial. He is the current commander of the @iss and living in space since half a year. It felt like a childs dream coming true for me – talking to a person living in the sky, sharing a glimpse of his view, realizing again how small we all are compared to the depth of the universe…
"He was the first to listen to one of our new songs from the upcoming album. It premiered in the sky, which is an honor for us. Thank you @nasa @europeanspaceagency and Thomas for this unique experience."
