The popular British band Pink Floyd released their first song in support of the Ukrainian people after nearly 30 years.
According to the Guardian, the band released a new music video for their new song “Hey Hey Rise Up” on their official YouTube page, featuring David Gilmour as “Guardian”. Guitarist and singer Nick Mason joins Dormer and Andrei Klionok joins the popular Ukrainian band Boom Box.
Roger Waters, the British singer-songwriter and guitarist who left Peak Floyd in 1985, will not be returning to the band for decades.
This piece of music has been placed for download in cyberspace and all proceeds will be used to support the people of Ukraine and the Ukrainian Humanitarian Fund.
The movie “Hey Hey Get Up”, which went viral on social media, begins with the message that Andrei Khlyonuk is ending his concert tour in the United States to defend his country in the war with Russia until Ukraine returns.
“Like everyone else in this ugly act, we feel outrage and despair over an independent, peaceful and democratic nation,” David Gilmore wrote on the official Twitter page of the Pink Floyd Group.
Pink Floyd was formed in 1965 in London by Syd Barrett, Nick Mason, Roger Waters and Richard Wright. Gilmore began working with the band in 1967, and Burt left the band a year earlier due to deteriorating physical condition. Pink Floyd has since become one of the most popular bands, selling over 200 million albums worldwide. “Dark Side of the Moon,” “The Wall,” and “I Wish You Were Here” are some of Pink Floyd’s best and some of the most influential rock albums of the 20th century.
According to the United Nations, at least 1,611 civilians were killed and 2,227 wounded in the Russian-Ukrainian invasion. More than 4.3 million Ukrainians have fled to other countries, and millions of them have recently become homeless.
