The first Pink Floyd song in almost 30 years originated in support of Ukraine.
Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmore joined CNN on Monday to discuss why the band decided to record the first music in 30 years: a song in support of Ukraine’s voice by a Ukrainian soldier.
The famous rock band released a new single last week in support of the Ukrainian people called “Hey Hey Rise Up”, the band said in a statement. It is the band’s first new song since 1994, and all proceeds will go to Ukrainian humanitarian aid, the report added.
The song is sung by Gilmore and drummer Nick Mason, with bassist Guy Brad and Nitin Sahni on the keyboard. The song features the voice of the Ukrainian band Poombox Andrei Klivnyuk. The band used the audio of Klivny singing in the center of the Ukrainian capital, Kiev, where he “sang around the world last month a powerful anti-Ukrainian song written during World War I.” Russian invasion.
Gilmore, who has a Ukrainian daughter-in-law and grandchildren, said in the statement, “I was moved by Clivenick’s performance in this beautiful golden domed church in a square in Kiev and … in the peace of a city without traffic.” And noise. “Background for war”.
On Monday, he talked about his relatives sending him a clip of Clivenew singing that song in Gilmore Square.
“It’s a very, very powerful performance and of course because it doesn’t have a cappella and other accessories. So you can easily take it into a studio and do something,” he said.
“I’m very frustrated with my own disability,” Gilmore said for Ukraine. He described Russia’s attack on Ukraine as “terrible”.
Gilmore said it was “a terrible thing to happen in Ukraine” and that the song “seemed to be a big deal that put me at my feet and turned it into something that was active, confident, and doing some positive good.”
Asked if he could imagine the band hosting a live show with Clivene in the future, Gilmore said: “I certainly would not rule it out.”
“It would be nice if we could do something like that. And he really liked this idea. I’ve talked to him several times over the last three weeks.”
Gilmore said in one of his conversations with a war-torn singer that he was “struck by mortar pieces while in a hospital bed.”
“He had a big black eye and bandages all over his face. What he does and what others do is beyond the comprehension or belief of most of us. The world.
