  • P-01 REISSUE II & "SONGS FROM A TIN CAN"

    September 3, 2015

    OCT 9, 2015   Warner Music releases Commander Chris Hadfield's album Songs From a Tin Can— the first album ever recorded in space.

    It’s an out-of-this-world partnership we’re especially proud of.

    When the Space Shuttle Discovery reached the International Space Station on AUG 10, 2001, few were aware it was carrying a special piece of cargo.  Along with a load of tools and supplies, the STS-105 mission was also bringing a Larrivée P-01 Parlor guitar — part of a NASA psychology program designed to help the astronauts better cope with living life in space.

    A talented musician, Commander Chris Hadfield played it frequently, and used to it record a version of David Bowie’s Space Oddity - the first ever music video shot in space, seen by millions around the world.  He also used the P-01 to lay down the initial tracks for his new record, Songs From A Tin Can. Watch the premier video for the album is the track "FEET UP".

    Larrivée is extremely proud to be a part of these first space travel folk songs.  To celebrate we’re releasing a limited reissue of the P-01 down here on earth.  The guitar comes with a signed certificate of authenticity and a copy of Songs From a Tin Can, personally signed by Commander Hadfield.

    OWN A PIECE OF MUSICAL HISTORY.   ORDER YOUR LIMITED P-01 REISSUE MODEL TODAY.
