There’s A New Spaceman In Town!
‘A Spaceman Came Travelling’ is a song first recorded by Chris de Burgh. When first released in 1976 it failed to chart in the UK.
However, in 1986, following de Burgh’s huge success with ‘The Lady In Red’, it charted for the first time in the UK in December 1986, reaching number 40 and staying on the chart for five weeks.
This year John Gibbons has teamed up with the incredible Nina Nesbitt to record their version of the song. It’s a little more upbeat and perhaps even a little more Christmassy.
What do you think? Do you prefer the original, the cover or neither?
