listen to David Gilmour’s first new song in 5 years “Yes, I Have Ghosts”
Pink Floyd's David Gilmour recorded a new song, "Yes, I Have Ghosts," for the audiobook of his wife Polly Samson's A Theatre for Dreamers and has now been released via streaming services. It's a baroque folk number that features David's daughter, Romany, on harp and backing vocals. “I was working on this song just as we went into lockdown and had to cancel a session with backing singers,” Gilmour says, “but, as it turned out, the solution was right here and I couldn’t be happier with the way Romany’s voice blends with mine and her beautiful harp playing has been another revelation.”
It's definitely got a bit of a Leonard Cohen vibe (a fictionalized version of the late singer is a character in Samson's book). Gilmour also recorded the score for the audiobook. Listen below.
