Legendary prog rock titans, Pink Floyd, have brought their musical arms out of the closet and come together again as a band to release a new song in support of the Ukrainian people.
Now over a month in, the war in Ukraine hit a personal nerve for David Gilmore who has an Ukrainian daughter-in-law, and so he felt compelled to write a song to try and “raise funds and morale”.
“I hope it will receive wide support and publicity. We want to raise funds for humanitarian charities and raise morale. 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”– David Gilmore (from the band’s official press release)
This is the first time since 1994 that the famously political band has recorded a song together. Read the full press release here.
