The announcement comes after Yungblud debuted his full cover of David Bowie‘s “Life On Mars”, which was taken from the livestream event that took place in January to mark the late music icon’s 74th birthday.
The singer performed the cover of the legendary Hunky Dory track at the ‘A Bowie Celebration: Just For One Day!’, joining a star-studded list of contributors including Duran Duran, Taylor Hawkins, Corey Taylor and Dave Navarro at the event.
The cover was previously played as NASA completed its latest Mars landing. The space agency’s Perseverance rover descended on the Red Planet last month (February 18) on a mission to search for signs of ancient life and collect samples for analysis back on Earth.
“First of all, I am as ready as a rabbit on Easter,” Yungblud said of the honor. “I love space so I am here for it. I remember my 23-year-old manager rings me on the phone. It was late cos he’s in LA and it must have been midnight cos I’d had a couple of beers, so I was already kind of out there.
“He’s like, ‘Yo, I just got off the phone with NASA’. I’m like, ‘Alright, yeah cool, what’s it about? You leaving me to go be an astronaut?’”
Meanwhile, Yungblud recently shared a re-worked version of his track “Parents”, featuring a 19-year-old fan from TikTok. He also recently teamed up with KSI and Polo G for new track “Patience”.
“I’m so incredibly proud to have Yungblud and Polo G on this record with me. I knew that I wanted to collaborate with Yungblud when I watched him perform for the first time at last year’s NME Awards,” KSI said.
