Hear David Gilmour’s First New Music in Five Years

David Gilmour has unveiled new song “Yes, I Have Ghosts” – his first new material since 2015 solo album ‘Rattle That Lock’.

The track sees Gilmour showcase his nylon-string acoustic technique in an understated folk tune, which also features his daughter Romany on backing vocals and harp.

“I was working on this song just as we went into lockdown and had to cancel a session with backing singers,” Gilmour says in a statement.

“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.”

As we reported last month, the track was premiered on his wife Polly Samson’s audiobook, A Theatre for Dreamers, but has now seen a standalone official release.

Gilmour previously said: “The audiobook format has so much untapped potential, and I am surprised more musicians have not creatively collaborated with authors, narrators, and audiobook producers in this way before.

“The two worlds seem to seamlessly link, and music can really help to bring audiobooks to life in unexpected new ways.”
