Larrivee P-01 Mahogany ISS Commemorative Reissue


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 missionwas 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 track video for the album "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.
