Just in from the outer reaches of our solar system is the latest production from star talent Comet 67P/Churyumov Gerasimenko, A Singing Comet. The European Space Agency called upon Vangelis (yep, the man behind the timeless Chariots of Fire theme) to help with the production for Comet 67P, and the result is an ambient techno smash hit.
Little is known about the musical legend Comet 67P, but we do know that the underrated star’s last visit to the sun was about six years ago. Needless to say, it is exciting to see the comeback and overdue recognition of this mysterious talent. Exciting still are rumors of the comet’s exploits with multiple tech house stars, the details of which are slowly being unearthed. It is possible that these famous stars were a major contribution in the final production of A Singing Comet.
After listening to the cavernous bassline, it’s clear that a lot of Comet 67P’s intergalactic upbringings are embodied in its current career trajectory and in the direction of its latest track. The cold, echoed chirping that remains present for the entire duration is a direct metaphor to the comet’s long travels through the atmosphere. It is rare to hear such maturity and growth in a single production, but this track proves that it is time for musicians everywhere to take production to cosmic new heights.
It is our belief that Vangelis will remain with Comet 67P in a producer’s capacity, but will not continue the arduous solar system tour that is undoubtedly next for the comet. So far, the only dates scheduled are a quick pass by Jupiter and the Sun. No Earth dates have been announced yet, it is very possible that Comet 67P might just pass us by on account of limited crowd demographics. But we have been tipped off that if Comet 67P hits Earth for a tour date, it is guaranteed that DJ Hodor will be there to welcome the landing and be the comet’s first opener.
