If you read science or atheist blogs, odds are you’ve seen the video of “A Glorious Dawn,” which featured remixed versions of Carl Sagan and Stephen Hawking.
The autotuned song was created by John Boswell.
Now, Third Man Records is putting out a limited edition 7″ vinyl record release of the song:
Third Man Records, in conjunction with United Record Pressing, fabricated a special “Cosmos Colored Vinyl” of which 150 copies will be available…50 randomly inserted into mail orders for “A Glorious Dawn” and the remainder to be made available at the Third Man Records Nashville store front at noon on November 9th.
The one-sided single features a very special etching on the flipside. Reproduced from the original artwork, the etching copies the etching included with the Voyager Golden Record, set off into space in 1977 as the most elaborate message-in-a-bottle idea ever imagined. With its inclusion of Blind Willie Johnson’s “Dark Was The Night” it goes without saying that the Voyager Golden Record is one of Third Man’s favorite releases of all-time.
You can purchase it here. It’s $6, including shipping, for Americans — a little more for the rest of you.
On a side note, is a Vinyl Sagan like a Velvet Elvis?
