CARL SAGAN

A GLORIOUS DAWN

THIRD MAN RECORDS


Format: 7"
Cata No: TMR-020
Barcode: N/A
Third Man Records is over the moon to announce the 7-inch release of "A Glorious Dawn" on November 9th. (ahem, we will actually have the stock in time for a Nov 23rd release date?.) "A Glorious Dawn" is a moving arrangement of Carl Sagan's sagacious words culled from his magnificent "Cosmos" series. The piece initially gained recognition when composer John Boswell uploaded to YouTube his remixed Sagan dialogue edited, Auto-Tuned and put to a beat and coupled with a guest appearance by Stephen Hawking. At well over one million views, this is a project that goes far-beyond the buzz of "Internet phenomenon." To hear "A Glorious Dawn" and view the accompanying video, visit http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zSgiXGELjbc The release is timed to coincide with the 75th anniversary of Sagan's birth. Also happening that day is a reception in United States' Congress with speeches by senators, NASA officials and assorted scientists, all hosted by the Planetary Society, which was co-founded by Sagan. 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.
