British music legends PINK FLOYD have unveiled the video for brand new track “Hey Hey Rise Up,” which is first new original music they’ve recorded together as a band since 1994’s The Division Bell.
On the song, David Gilmour and Nick Mason were joined by longtime bassist Guy Pratt and keyboardist Nitin Sawhney. Singer Andriy Khlyvnyuk of the Ukrainian band BOOMBOX appears on the song as well.
The new video was filmed by director Mat Whitecross and shot on the same day as the track was recorded in David Gilmour‘s barn, where he and Nick Mason worked with the late Richard Wright back in 2007.
Gilmour says: “We recorded the track and video in our barn where we did all our Von Trapped Family live streams during lockdown. It’s the same room that we did the ‘Barn Jams’ with Rick Wright. Janina Pedan made the set in a day and we had Andriy singing on the screen while we played, so the four of us had a vocalist, albeit not one who was physically present with us.”
Proceeds from sales of the song will go towards Ukraine Humanitarian Relief.
