We’re sure many of you guys have heard of the band Red Hot Chili Peppers before. Well the band’s former guitarist and something of a legend, John Frusciante, has recently launched his latest album titled Enclosure, but he has not gone about his album launch the same way as everyone else has.

Instead Frusciante has chosen to launch his album into space! Yup, you heard that right, Enclosure has been sent into space thanks to it being loaded onto a satellite that will be orbiting the globe. Now the good news is that this album will be streamed for free as long as it is orbiting near your region.

For those interested in checking it out, all they’d need to do is download a free app which will let them know when the satellite is within range, from which they will then be able to stream the album for free. The app will also include a chat feature that will let fans chat with one another.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen musicians release albums through unconventional means. Beyonce launched her last album quietly on iTunes where it became a huge hit; Skrillex unveiled his album via a video game; and musician Moby released his album as a BitTorrent bundle. For fans of John Frusciante, the album itself will see a release on the 11th of April, with the free streaming preview expected to come to an end on the 7th of April.

In the meantime you can check out how the album was prepped and launched into space in the video above.
