Yungblud has officially released his cover of David Bowie‘s “Life on Mars?”

The “Original Me” rocker first put his spin on the classic track earlier this year during a virtual Bowie tribute event held in honor of the late music icon’s birthday. The cover was also used to soundtrack footage of NASA landing the Perseverance Mars Rover last month.

You can now listen to Yungblud’s take on “Life on Mars?” to your heart’s content via digital outlets. The cover’s official release coincides with the launch of a new NASA-inspired Yungblud merch line.

“I’m doing a merch drop with NASA and being allowed to release a cover of my favorite song by my favorite artist,” Yungblud says. “Someone f***ing pinch me.”

Yungblud released his sophomore album Weird!, featuring a song called “Mars,” last December.
