PINK FLOYD 7-HEY HEY RISE UP
Feat. Andriy Khlyvnyuk of Boombox
This single was initially released digitally in April in support of the people of Ukraine and was #1 in 29 countries. The track sees David Gilmour and Nick Mason joined by long time Pink Floyd bass player Guy Pratt, with Nitin Sawhney on keyboards and a lead vocal by Andriy Khlyvnyuk of Ukrainian band Boombox. It also has vocal harmonies by Romany and David Gilmour. For this limited edition release, David Gilmour revisited The Division Bell track ‘A Great Day For Freedom’ from the band’s 1994 album, The Division Bell. He has reworked the song using the original tapes which, as well as David, feature Nick Mason on drums and Richard Wright on keyboards, along with backing vocals from Sam Brown, Claudia Fontaine and Durga McBroom. Proceeds for the physical releases and the ongoing digital proceeds will go to Ukraine humanitarian relief.
