If you thought Stephen Hawking couldn't sing… think again!
The physicist put his electronic vocals to the test for a cover of Monty Python's Galaxy Song, and it's brilliant!

The song is in honor of Record Store Day, on April 18th, and 1,000 limited edition 7" records of the song will be released!
It was originally sung by Eric Idle, and was written for the Meaning of Life in 1983. But this reimagined version was thought up as a result of the Monty Python reunion shows taking place.
Ch-ch-check out Stephen floating through space and explaining the galaxy to us like only he can (below)!

One Direction is set to throw it back to the older days of tune-age by releasing a limited edition vinyl for Record Store Day 2014!
And they'll be in good company too—with stars like Bruno Mars and Katy Perry participating in limited releases just like this one!
The boybanders will put out a 7" glam rock-themed disc version of their single Midnight Memories, followed by a live version of their jam Rock Me, which sounds so AH-Mazing!
The vinyl will be exclusive products at independent music shops in the UK and Ireland on April 19th—and if you're not from across the pond, we're sure a slew of copies will be on Ebay!

Praise Record Store Day (April 21st)!!
We know vinyl may seem ancient to many, but it is a celebrated listening format and one of the purest ways to listen to tunes!
Katy Perry and Bruno Mars are honoring the outdated format by releasing records featuring some of their current hit songs!!
Kaypers will release Part of Me - Jacques Lu Cont’s Thin White Duke Remix on a 12-inch single with Tommie Sunshine’s Megasix Smash-Up on the flip side. Bruno chose to press four versions of Grenade into his vinyl project.
Paul McCartney, Coldplay, and Bruce Springsteen are also doing their part in helping 2000 independent record stores that depend on the sale of the vintage medium.
Get your vinyl on!
