Has life gotten you down?
Do things seem hard or tough?
We might have just the antidote: Stephen Hawking covering Monty Python's "Galaxy Song."
The famous physicist and pop icon has lent his electronic voice to a new video for the ditty, written by Eric Idle and made famous as the closing track in the British comedy troupe's 1983 film classic Monty Python's the Meaning of Life.
The cover is set for released as a 7-inch single for Record Store Day on April 18. It follows Monty Python Live (Mostly), a stage revival with Idle, John Cleese, Michael Palin, Terry Jones and Terry Gilliam performing such classic skits as "Dead Parrot" and "Ministry of Silly Walks."
Along with "Galaxy Song," a version of the classic video game Asteroids is being released featuring a heavily armed Hawking shooting up the faces of the Monty Python cast.
This is not the first time that Hawking has appeared in a music video — his "voice" has also been featured in two songs by the British band Pink Floyd.
