Lady Gaga is teaming up with Virgin Galactic and will be heading into space to give a special performance for her fans in early 2015.

The performance will be one song and will come as a part of the Zero G Colony music festival, a three-day event that will take place at Spaceport America in New Mexico.

It’s also where Virgin Galactic shares real estate with Elon Musk’s SpaceX.

Gaga is already taking steps to make sure the performance is a success. According to Us, she has invested hours of vocal training to prepare her for the environment and she also took out “a ridiculous life insurance policy.”

Lady Gaga isn’t the first artist to make space music. will.i.am premiered his song “Reach for the Stars” from the surface of Mars last year through the Curiosity Rover. But the honor of “First Song Recorded in Space” goes to astronaut Chris Hadfield. His “Jewel in the Night” was played and recorded last year on the International Space Station.
