Weezer have released a song called I Love The USA to pay tribute to NASA’s spacecraft mission to Jupiter.

It follows Trent Reznor’s tribute to the spacecraft, which he called Juno – after the craft itself.

Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo says: “We were on tour abroad, and it got me thinking a lot about America, which lead to me write I Love The USA.

“When Apple Music and NASA asked us to be involved with Juno’s historic landing on July 4, this song seemed like the perfect fit.”

The songs will feature in a short Apple film based on the mission, which also explores the relationship between space and music.

Weezer released their 10th album, known as The White Album, earlier this year. They are currently on tour with Panic! At The Disco.
