Cosmologist and physicist Stephen Hawking will appear on Pink Floyd's upcoming album, "The Endless River," which is out on November 10 of this year.

Hawking will appear on the track "Talkin' Hawkin'" This is the second time Hawking's well-known computerized voice will be featured in a Pink Floyd song. He first appeared on "Keep Talkin,'" from the 1994 album "The Division Bell." Rolling Stone reports that "Talkin' Hawkin'" is not a sequel to "Keep Talkin,'" which can be heard below:

As NPR points out, Hawking has lent his voice to many other pop culture projects, including for cartoon versions of himself in the "Simpsons" and "Futurama," and has also appeared in "Star Trek: The Next Generation" and "The Big Bang Theory."
