Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour releases first solo song in five years
The track was inspired by Polly Samson's new novel "A Theatre For Dreamers"
Pink Floyd's guitarist David Gilmour is back to entertain his fans with his latest music video "Yes, I Have Ghosts."
The track, which was inspired by Polly Samson's new novel "A Theatre For Dreamers", features the voice and harp playing of David's daughter Romany according to billboard.

It's a gentle, acoustic number with flourishes of strings. On it, Gilmour sings, "Yes, I have ghosts, not all of them dead/ Making dust of my dreams, spinning round and around, around in my head."
Gilmour says "I was working on this song just as we went into lockdown and had to cancel a session with backing singers, 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. "
The song has previously only been available as part of the ground-breaking audiobook for the novel. Samson, who wrote the lyrics, says: "Collaborating with David — as I have done many times over the last 30 years, writing songs for both PINK FLOYD and his solo albums — we were able to bring together the worlds of literature and music to enhance the listening experience and connect with audiences in a way which I don't think has been done before."
