DECLAN MCKENNA Releases New Track ‘Be An Astronaut’

With fans around the world, Declan McKenna has shared Bowie-esque new single Be An Astronaut, taken from his highly anticipated forthcoming album, Zeros.

Declan McKenna

Be An Astronaut is the third single to be released by the music sensation this year, lifted off his highly anticipated second album, Zeros, which will be released on September 4th. The new track is encapsulated in synthesisers, heavy guitar hooks and a seriously smooth melody that features gospel-inspired backing vocals. The song marks a move in direction for the 21-year-old with previous singles such as Paracetamol and Brazil having heavy indie-pop melodies whilst Be An Astronaut is one of the most awe encompassing experiences to be had much like the very first time you hear David Bowie’s Life On Mars.
