Below, you can hear David Gilmour’s cover of the Beatles’ ballad “Here, There and Everywhere,” from their 1966 album, Revolver.

Gilmour recorded the song, with his son Joe for Mojo magazine’s David Gilmour & Friends compilation CD, included with the publication’s October 2015 issue.

“I really wish I had been in the Beatles,” Gilmour reveals in the Mojo interview. “[They] taught me how to play guitar; I learnt everything. The bass parts, the lead, the rhythm, everything. They were fantastic.”

Though more lush than the original, his cover is faithful up to his soulful guitar solo, a Gilmour trademark. Mojo says the guitarist sent them his cover of “Here, There and Everywhere” two years ago but needed some convincing before he agreed to let them release it.
