Listen to Pink Floyd’s First Song in 28 Years (Video)
Pink Floyd has released a new song “Hey, Hey, Rise Up!” in support of Ukraine. The song is the first new music the group has recorded in 28 years, since 1994’s “The Division Bell.”
As previously reported, the song features Andriy Khlyvnyuk (of Ukrainian band Boombox). Specifically, the new track has Khlyvnyuk’s vocals from an Instagram post that found him singing the patriotic Ukranian song “Oh, the Red Viburnum in the Meadow” in Kyiv’s Sophia Square earlier this year.
“I hope it will receive wide support and publicity. We want to raise funds for humanitarian charities, and raise morale,” said David Gilmour. “We want to express our support for Ukraine and in that way, show that most of the world thinks that it is totally wrong for a superpower to invade the independent democratic country that Ukraine has become.”
Proceeds from the single will go to the Ukraine Humanitarian Fund.
