Fox doesn’t launch its updated version of Carl Sagan’s Cosmos until March 9, but space nerds can get amped up for Seth MacFarlane and Neil deGrasse Tyson’s passion project with—believe it or not—Yellow Ostrich’s new record. The band’s own Cosmos is inspired by Sagan’s original and comes out next Tuesday, Feb. 25, on Barsuk. The entire thing is streaming exclusively on The A.V. Club starting today, and is a study in the intersection of intimacy and bombast, just like Sagan’s original work.
Interested parties can pre-order Yellow Ostrich’s Cosmos now or catch the band on tour this spring. Dates are below.
