First New Music in 25 Years Issued in Support of the People of Ukraine; Also includes Newly Reworked Version of The Division Bell Track "A Great Day For Freedom"

Pink Floyd returns with their first newly recorded music in over 25 years! The single "Hey Hey Rise Up," which was initially released digitally in April in support of the people of Ukraine and was No.1 in 29 countries, is available here on vinyl 7". The track sees David Gilmour and Nick Mason joined by long time bassist Guy Pratt, with Nitin Sawhney on keyboards and a lead vocal by Andriy Khlyvnyuk of Ukrainian band Boombox. It also has vocal harmonies by Romany and Gilmour. When the track was first recorded at the end of March, Andriy, who left his band's US tour to return home and fight for his country, was in a hospital bed in Kyiv recovering from a shrapnel injury. Proceeds for the physical release and the ongoing digital proceeds will go to Ukraine humanitarian relief.

The single also includes a newly reworked version of "A Great Day For Freedom" from the band's 1994 album, The Division Bell. Gilmour reworked the song using the original tapes which, as well as David, features Nick Mason on drums and Richard Wright on keyboards, along with backing vocals from Sam Brown, Claudia Fontaine and Durga McBroom.

The artwork features a painting of the national flower of Ukraine with a twist by the Cuban artist Yosan Leon. The cover is a direct reference to the woman who was seen around the world giving sunflower seeds to Russian soldiers and telling them to carry them in their pockets, so that when they die sunflowers will grow.
