Pink Floyd have reunited for a one-off charity single to raise money for Ukrainians affected by Russia’s invasion. “Hey, Hey, Rise Up” features vocals by Andriy Khlyvnyuk of the Ukrainian band, Boombox, who recorded himself in full military gear singing the folk song, “The Red Viburnum in the Meadow,” to the empty streets in Kyiv’s Sofiyskaya Square.
David Gilmour was so moved by the performance that he called Nick Mason, bassist Guy Pratt, and keyboardist Nitin Sawhney and organized a recording session last Wednesday that featured video of Khlyvnyuk projected on the wall. The performance marks the first time Pink Floyd have recorded new music since the release of 1994’s The Division Bell. (The music on 2014’s The Endless River came from the Division Bell sessions.)
“That spacious, cinematic glimmer remains, with Pink Floyd — David Gilmour and Nick Mason with bassist Guy Pratt and keyboardist Nitin Sawhney — reaching for connection.”
