LISTEN: David Gilmour Shares 1st New Song In 5 Years
A week after debuting “Yes, I Have Ghosts” in an audiobook, Pink Floyd‘s David Gilmour has released it as a standalone track.
It is the first original music from the 74-year-old musician in five years and features backing vocals and harp by Gilmour’s daughter Romany.
“I was working on this song just as we went in to lockdown and had to cancel a session with backing singers but, as it turned out, the solution was right here and I couldn’t be happier with the way Romany’s voice blends with mine and her beautiful harp playing has been another revelation,” he said, in a release.
Gilmour’s song was featured in the audiobook for A Theatre for Dreamers by his wife Polly Samson, who penned the lyrics.
“Polly’s vivid and poetic writing, coupled with her very natural narration voice, made joining forces to produce the audio version of A Theatre for Dreamers a fantastic and fulfilling experience,” said Gilmour.
A Theatre for Dreamers is set on a Greek island in 1960 and focuses on a community of artists, including a young Leonard Cohen.
Gilmour's most recent solo studio album was his fourth, 2015's Rattle That Lock.
