23.06.22 'Hey Hey Rise Up' limited edition 7" and CD single


Pink Floyd are to release two physical versions of their newly recorded music, Hey Hey Rise Up.

The single, which was initially released digitally in April in support of the people of Ukraine and was Number 1 in 27 countries, will be available on 7" and CD single. Both formats will also feature a newly reworked version of A Great Day for Freedom taken from the band's 1994 album, The Division Bell. The single will be available on 15 July (excluding Japan – released on 3 August – and USA, Canada, Australia and Mexico – released on 21 October).

For this limited edition release, David Gilmour has reworked A Great Day for Freedom using the original tapes which feature Nick Mason on drums and Richard Wright on keyboards, along with backing vocals from Sam Brown, Claudia Fontaine and Durga McBroom. The track was composed by Gilmour with lyrics by himself and Polly Samson. Speaking about the song in 1994, Gilmour said, "There was a wonderful moment of optimism when the Berlin wall came down – the release of Eastern Europe from the non-democratic side of the socialist system. But what they have now doesn't seem to be much better. Again, I'm fairly pessimistic about it all. I sort of wish and live in hope, but I tend to think that history moves at a much slower pace than we think it does. I feel that real change takes a long, long time".

Talking about the inspiration for Hey Hey Rise Up Gilmour commented, "Any war, but particularly a war that is started by a world superpower against an independent democratic nation, has got to raise enormous anger and frustration in one. As I said before, I have a small connection there; my daughter-in-law is from Ukraine. And the band Boombox are Ukrainian people that I already knew, not well, but from some time ago. It's an enormously difficult, frustrating, and anger-making thing that one human being could have the power to go into another independent democratic nation and set about killing the population. It's just obscene to an extent that is just beyond my belief".
