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".

Music journalist and author Mark Blake sat down with Hipgnosis co-founder Aubrey Powell for 45 minutes about his new book "Through the Prism". Powell talked about Led Zeppelin, Peter Gabriel, Paul McCartney... and of course Pink Floyd.

Powell, meanwhile, gave an update on the status of the Animals remix, which both he and Blake were collaborating on. Powell was responsible for the artwork and Blake wrote the liner notes, which led to disagreements between the band members. David Gilmour and Nick Mason ultimately voted against the additional information. Roger Waters eventually published the liner notes on his website.

Powell confirmed that the Animals' 2018 remix will be out soon. It won’t be June, as previously stated at the Their Mortal Remains exhibition, but it will be available towards the latter end of the year.

:

«Yes, it will be coming out shortly. I was working on it today in fact. I’m just preparing it for release. There is, in fact, a completely new cover for it. It has been shot at Battersea Power Station semi-late at night, and it looks amazing, but it really does look very different. I’m really interested in people being able to see that.

Animals is one of my favourite albums by Pink Floyd just because of the stories attached. You know, the pig flying away. People say it must be a publicity stunt, but no it wasn’t. You see the picture of it in the book and you think, Oh God, am I really responsible for that? But, you know, it wasn’t publicity stuff, but you couldn’t do that now.

I remember going to Battersea Power Station and it was a dump. It was full of coal and debris and broken cars. It was just absolutely horrid. I knocked on the door and a lad answered. I said I was looking for someone important and the chap went, well thats me, and I said I want to fly a pig. He said it was fine but you wouldn’t get away with it these days because you know health and safety.

I remember speaking to Roger and Storm when we got the pig flying because next door to Battersea was the American embassy, who saw it on CCTV and said “Take that down, take that down.”

Not many people know this, but the media reported the band was being charged with flying an undentified flying object. Luckily, a farmer in Kent put a stop to that when he phoned and said are you looking for a pig and I said yes. It was a relief, that can be said. It’s all in the book.»

Fifty-five years ago, on 12th May 1967, The Pink Floyd performed their first conceptional-like concert named Games for May — Space-age relaxation for the climax of Spring at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London.

Set up by their (then) managers Andrew King and Peter Jenner (Blackhill Enterprises) and it was promoted by classical promoter Christopher Hunt.

It was also the first surround-sound rock concert ever. Thanks to their homemade proto-quadraphonic device, the 'Azimuth Co-ordinator'.

Next to their early songs and recent finished material off their first album The Piper at the Gates of Dawn, the band also presented a totally new song specially written for this event: 'See Emily Play' (eventually then known as 'Games For May', hence its mentioning in the chorus).

Reportedly this song contained slightly different lyrics at that time. 'See Emily Play' was recorded at Sound Techniques in Chelsea not long after the concert and became the Floyd's first Top 10 hit in Great Britain.

Syd, Roger, Rick and Nick performed the following songs at the Games For May concert:

  Matilda Mother
  Flaming
  Scarecrow
  Games For May (See Emily Play)
  Bike
  Arnold Layne
  Candy and a Currant Bun
  Pow R. Toc H.
  Interstellar Overdrive
  Lucifer Sam

Before, during and after the performance a couple of sound effects could be heard. Including 'Dawn' which was a sound collage of bird calls and other natural sounds, this was also played at the foyer of the Hall prior the gig.

Besides Roger throwing potatoes at a large gong, the band (obviously Nick) also chopped up wood on stage while a man (dressed up as an admiral) was giving out daffodils to the audience.

Those lots of flowers and bubbles, produced from a machine (controlled by Rick), while the show was in progress, stained all the furniture in the hall. Because of that, the band was banned from ever playing in the Queen Elizabeth Hall again. Also, the mentioned Azimuth Co-ordinator was stolen right after the show was ending.

Nonetheless this concert is an important chapter in the band's early history.

Much later, rumours went round that the concert was taped via professional (multitrack) recording devices by EMI, but Peter Jenner denied this. Though some visitors believed to have seen recording machines at the venue, no true evidence ever came up.

The last live performance of Pink Floyd with David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Richard Wright all together in 2007. This special performance of Arnold Layne took place at the Syd Barrett Tribute Concert'The Madcap’s Last Laugh' (produced by Nick Laird-Clowes with Associate Producer Joe Boyd) held at The Barbican on May 10th 2007. The Pink Floyd members were augmented by Jon Carin (Keyboards, vocals) and Andy Bell from Oasis on bass guitar. After a star-studded line-up throughout the evening, Pink Floyd took to the stage for an incredibly emotional finale.

The concert was held to pay homage to Barrett, who had died a year earlier and sadly became the final performance of the band to include Richard Wright, who passed away the year after.

British rock band Pink Floyd is exploring a sale of its recorded music catalog, which includes some of the best-selling albums in history.

Representatives for the band have reached out to potential buyers, according to three people familiar with the matter who asked to not be identified because the discussions are private. The process began in the last few days, and it’s too early to know what the outcome will be, they said. Representatives of the band didn’t respond to requests for comment.

Pink Floyd is looking to capitalize on what has been a frothy market for music rights and score a deal worth hundreds of millions of dollars. Just last year, Bob Dylan sold his recordings to Sony Music in a deal estimated to be worth . Deals for songwriting catalogs have eclipsed $300 million.

While the market for some music rights has begun to soften, that shouldn’t hurt a band like Pink Floyd. The group has sold 75 million records in the U.S. alone, the 10th most of any artist, according to the .

Pink Floyd had heaviness in their DNA from day one — just not always the head-banging type.

Back in their early days, psych-rock classics like "Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun" offered a visceral power maximized via cranked-up amplifiers. And after the 1968 exit of original mastermind Syd Barrett, as they moved from small clubs to stadiums, the band organically inched toward the flash and muscle of hard rock. While they were never virtuosos, some of their signature songs — including highlights from The Wall and The Dark Side of the Moon — were carried by David Gilmour's bluesy, lyrical lead guitar. When the mood struck (and the concept supported it), they could rip with the best of them.

While we haven't necessarily rounded up their best tunes, this list does point to a fascinating intersection of intensity and quality. Here are the 10 Heaviest Pink Floyd Songs.

David Gilmour: «If Nick and I, as the two members of Pink Floyd, feel like that's we ought to do, what we owe the world, and than that is what we should do. We haven't even thought about doing live shows, I say, I guess it's a possibility but I haven't done for such a long time. But who knows, I don't know...»

The courage of the people of Ukraine inspired David Gilmour and Nick Mason to release their first new song as Pink Floyd since 1994: "We want to spread this message of peace, and we want to raise the morale of the people who are defending their homeland"

by April 8, 2022

A few days after Russia invaded Ukraine, singer-turned-soldier Andriy Khlyvnyuk posted — a folk song about the country's strength in the face of adversity — to Instagram. The vocalist, who fronts the Kyiv group Boombox, had hoped to be playing gigs in the U.S. last month. But when he heard Russia had invaded his homeland, . At the outbreak of the war, he told he felt it was his duty to stick up for Ukraine for the sake of the world. "[The West] needs us as the shield to protect it all," he said.

In the video, he's wearing fatigues and clinging to a submachine gun as he serenades the empty streets: "Our glorious Ukraine shall hey, hey, rise up and rejoice."

Tonight at midnight, Pink Floyd will release 'Hey Hey Rise Up', in support of the people of Ukraine. It sees David Gilmour and Nick Mason joined by long time Pink Floyd bass player Guy Pratt and Nitin Sawhney on keyboards, all accompanying an extraordinary vocal by Andriy Khlyvnyuk of Ukrainian band Boombox. All proceeds go to Ukrainian Humanitarian Relief.

The track, recorded last Wednesday (30th March), uses Andriy’s vocals taken from his of him in Kyiv’s Sofiyskaya Square singing ‘Oh, The Red Viburnum In The Meadow’, a rousing Ukrainian folk protest song written during the first world war. The title of the Pink Floyd track is taken from the last line of the song which translates as ‘Hey, hey, rise up and rejoice’.

The video for ‘Hey Hey Rise Up' was filmed by acclaimed director Mat Whitecross and shot on the same day as the track was recorded, with Andriy singing on the screen while the band played.

Gilmour, who has a Ukrainian daughter-in-law and grandchildren says: “We, like so many, have been feeling the fury and the frustration of this vile act of an independent, peaceful democratic country being invaded and having its people murdered by one of the world's major powers”.

Gilmour explains how he came to know Andriy and his band Boombox. “In 2015, I played a show at Koko in London in support of the Belarus Free Theatre, whose members have been imprisoned. Pussy Riot and the Ukrainian band, Boombox, were also on the bill. They were supposed to do their own set, but their singer Andriy had visa problems, so the rest of the band backed me for my set — we played Wish You Were Here for Andriy that night. Recently I read that Andriy had left his American tour with Boombox, had gone back to Ukraine, and joined up with the Territorial Defense. Then I saw this incredible video on Instagram, where he stands in a square in Kyiv with this beautiful gold-domed church and sings in the silence of a city with no traffic or background noise because of the war. It was a powerful moment that made me want to put it to music.”

While writing the music for the track, David managed to speak with Andriy from his hospital bed in Kyiv where he was recovering from a mortar shrapnel injury. “I played him a little bit of the song down the phone line and he gave me his blessing. I hope that we do something together in person at some point in the future.”

Speaking about his hopes for the track Gilmour says, “I hope it will receive wide support and publicity. We want to raise funds and morale. We want to show 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.

The artwork for the track features a painting of the national flower of Ukraine, the sunflower, by the Cuban artist, Yosan Leon. The cover of the single is a direct reference to the woman who was seen around the world giving sunflower seeds to Russian soldiers and telling them to carry them in their pockets so that when they die, sunflowers will grow.

In my rear view mirror the sun is going down
sinking behind bridges in the road
I think of all the good things that we have left undone
I suffer premonitions confirm suspicions
of the holocaust to come...
