Will.i.am, Rover Curiosity

Bruno Mars may have the appropriate moniker, but it looks like another artist will be heard coming from the Red Planet.

NASA has announced plans for a new song by will.i.am to make its debut from the surface of Mars via the Curiosity rover.

The single, "Reach for the Stars," will be transmitted on Tuesday to Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., as part of an educational event to share findings about Mars with students.

The 37-year-old performer himself will be on hand at JPL as a way of launching a new collaboration between NASA and will.i.am's educational foundation, i.am.angel.

"My song is finally going to be beamed back to earth from MARS," will.i.am tweeted on Sunday.

Can't wait to hear the track. We're pretty sure it'll be, er, out of this world.
