Pink Floyd Reunite To Record Protest Song Against The War In Ukraine

Pink Floyd have reunited for the first time in 28 years to record a song protesting against the war in Ukraine.


The song, titled, Hey Hey, Rise Up!, is featuring David Gilmour, Nick Mason, Gu Pratt and Nitin Sawhney.


The song is founded on a refrain of a song from Ukrainian singer Andriy Khlyvnyuk of the band Boombox.


Gilmour referred to the song as a show of "anger at a superpower invading a peaceful nation".


Gilmour, who contacted Khlyvnyuk to seek permission, had coincidentally performed live with BoomBox in 2015, at a London benefit gig for the Belarus Free Theatre.


He said:


"I spoke to him, actually, from his hospital bed, where he had a pretty minor injury from a mortar. So he's right there on the front line. I played him a little bit of the song down the phone line and he gave me his blessing."


The song's proceeds will be going to humanitarian relief.


For Gilmour, the song is especially significant, as his daughter-in-law is the Ukrainian-born artist Janina Pedan.


Speaking to the BBC, he said that the sunflower in the single's artwork was inspired by her. He said:


"My daughter-in-law told us the story of a woman at the beginning of this conflict, giving sunflower seeds to Russian soldiers and saying that she hoped that sunflowers would sprout where they died."
