While performing at Brooklyn's Kings Theater last night, Wilco performed a cover David Bowie's "Space Oddity," with frontman Jeff Tweedy turning out some pretty flawless vocals.

The acoustic tune was the final song of the band's set; Tweedy seemed to take extra care with the late Bowie's words.

Before "Space Oddity," Wilco performed their latest LP, Star Wars, in its entirety, as they've been doing for most dates on their winter tour.

As Rolling Stone reports, the cover wasn't Tweedy's first this year; the folk artist previously sang Bowie's "Rebel Rebel" and "Jean Genie" at Buck's Todos Santos Music Festival alongside R.E.M.'s Peter Buck and Mike Mills, as well as Sleater-Kinney's Corin Tucker and members of the Minus Five.

Bowie died January 10 of liver cancer, leaving his album Blackstar as a final goodbye. Artists all over the world have been paying tribute to the artist for the past month.

Tweedy recently revealed he is writing a book about his career, including his time with Wilco.

"I have stories to tell, and I'd like for this book to be a combination of those stories about my experiences, and maybe a window into one person's creative process, as well as some of what I've seen working with other artists in my current and former bands, in the studio, on the road, in my basement with my sons and more," Tweedy said.
