The song is called “New Normal,” and won’t be released until later in the month. However, it will make its live debut at the event, following the Unity 22 crew’s landing of the 22nd flight test for VSS Unity, Rolling Stone reported.

It’s the company’s fourth crewed spaceflight and the first to carry a full crew consisting of two pilots and four mission specialists, including Virgin Galactic’s founder, Sir Richard Branson.

“Around this time last year, I was super fascinated and gravitated toward space. I was watching this comet by the name of Neowise last year, and space travel is something that I’ve always been interested in as well. And I’ve been going through the motions of understanding this new, postmodern future that’s coming together, especially when it comes down to technology — it’s something that really excites me,” Khalid said of the song, which he described as “personal therapy” amid the pandemic.

“Writing the song ‘New Normal’ was my way of coping with the anxiety and coping with the misunderstanding. I had to come to terms with who I was as an individual and the type of person that I wanted to be. And to me, this song, it just embodies hope for the outcome of our future.”

The launch will be available to stream live on VirginGalactic.com, as well as the brand’s social media channels, and is expecting to start at 9 a.m. ET on the day of the flight.
