This isn’t even a joke! Serious musician will.i.am is premiering a new song tomorrow — on Mars. The name of said song will be broadcast through the Curiosity rover. And, I kid you not, it’s called “Reach for the Stars.”

Let’s be realistic; it’s no “Don’t Phunk with My Heart”, and it might not match the lyrical elegance of “I gotta feeling / that tonight’s gonna be a good night”. But it has something to do with “the singer’s passion for science, technology and space exploration” and also education through will.i.am’s i.am.angel Foundation. I bet you this song has a line in it that says something to the effect of “shoot for the moon. Even if you miss you’ll land among the stars.” [NASA via SlashGear via The Verge]
