Pink Floyd Reunite For Ukraine Protest Song

The band reunited to record a new song in support of the humanitarian efforts in Ukraine‚ inspired by a 1917 protest song. The song is the first original Pink Floyd song in 28 years‚ and raises money for the Ukraine Humanitarian Relief Fund. But why are the band members reuniting now? Here are some of the reasons why. Also‚ check out the new video for the song. It's worth a listen!

Pink Floyd's Hey Hey‚ Rise Up! is a protest song against Russia's invasion of Ukraine

Pink Floyd reunite for a new song‚ Hey Hey‚ Rise Up! The band's first new music in 28 years was released on Friday. The song samples Ukrainian singer Andriy Khlyvnyuk‚ who was forced to leave a U.S. tour to join the Ukrainian army during Russia's invasion of Ukraine. The song will be available on Friday‚ March 8th. The proceeds of the single will benefit humanitarian efforts in the Ukraine. The release of the song coincides with a Stand Up for Ukraine social media rally and pledging event. The band is hoping to raise billions of dollars to help those in Ukraine and elsewhere who have been forcibly displaced. The video also features footage of protesters waving Ukrainian flags. The band's music has often addressed war and social issues. They also recorded the concept album The Wall in 1979. The video was shot in Kiev‚ where a woman insulted two armed Russian soldiers. Gilmour said the woman's words were meant to be humorous. She told the soldiers to put sunflower seeds in their pockets so that they would grow when they rest. The video has since gone viral. However‚ Gilmour has withdrawn the music from Belarussian and Russian streaming services to ensure it would not end up in the hands of the Russian government. The band's first new music in nearly three decades is a protest song against Russia's invasion of Ukraine. The song‚ Hey Hey Rise Up‚ is a remake of an anti-war protest song written during World War I. Khlyvnyuk has been singing it in front of the St. Sophia Cathedral in Kyiv. The song has also been credited to Ukrainian rock star Andriy Khlyvnyuk of BoomBox. While Mr. Khlyvnyuk was on tour in the United States‚ the war in Ukraine forced him to return to his hometown‚ Kyiv. He enlisted in the Ukrainian military and began singing the song‚ which is now the song Holy Motherland. The track was posted on YouTube shortly after the Russian invasion of Ukraine. It was also the band's first time recording a song together since 'Divided Bell' in 1994.

It's the band's first original song in 28 years

The legendary British band is reuniting to release a new single in support of the people of Ukraine. The single‚ Hey Hey Rise Up‚ features Ukrainian singer Andriy Khlyvnyuk and a plethora of other artists. It was recorded last week in Kyiv's Sofiyskaya Square. The band's reunification is the latest example of their commitment to humanitarian aid efforts in Ukraine. Gilmour‚ who has been unable to release new solo recordings for over a decade‚ was moved to write the protest song after seeing a documentary about the conflict in Ukraine. He also gathered all the band members to listen to the song‚ saying he would not do it with many other things. Gilmour said that the country must understand its situation and do everything possible to change it. This prompted Pink Floyd to respond to the situation by making music that expressed his frustration‚ pain‚ and unremitting sadness. Hey Hey‚ Rise Up! is the band's first new song in almost three decades‚ and it features Gilmour‚ Nick Mason‚ and Guy Pratt. It is a protest song written during the World War I era that has resurfaced in response to the ongoing war in Ukraine. The song features the Ukrainian singer Andriy Khlyvnyuk‚ who performed The Red Viburnum at the end of his U.S. tour to defend his homeland. The song is a resounding success. The legendary British rock band has reunited for a new version of their classic anthem 'Hey‚ Hey‚ Rise Up!' to protest the invasion of Ukraine by Russia. 'Hey Hey‚ Rise Up!' also features a sample of a Ukrainian musician who fought for the country during the first world war. The band's reunification has not only inspired many people to take action against the Russian occupation but also helped the Ukrainian people defend their country from its aggressors.

It raises money for the Ukraine Humanitarian Relief Fund

It's been nearly three decades since Pink Floyd last released new music‚ but the band is back with a new song. Hey Hey Rise Up features Ukrainian singer Andriy Khlyvnyuk on vocals. The group performed the song at the Sofiyskaya Square in Kyiv last week. In a separate video‚ singer Andriy Khlyvnyuk performed the song live for a crowd of people in the city. The band members were contacted by an artist who was suffering from the war in Ukraine. He was able to find a young man named Pavel Khlyvnyuk who had recorded a song during the first world war. The song‚ which is now considered a rallying cry in Ukraine‚ reflects the underlying themes of the conflict in the country. David Gilmour also spoke with a Ukrainian soldier in a hospital‚ and the song's proceeds will go to help Ukraine's humanitarian relief efforts. The band members recorded a new song on March 30. Gilmour‚ Nick Mason‚ Guy Pratt‚ and Nitin Sawhney all contributed to the new song. The group's new track samples a World War One protest song by Ukrainian singer Pavel Khlyvnyuk‚ and is supported by Nick Mason‚ the founding member of Pink Floyd. The Ukrainian song Oh‚ the Red Viburnum in the Meadow was written by a rebel during World War I. The band's song borrows the title‚ which means hey hey‚ rise up and rejoice. In addition to the song‚ a video of the singer singing Hey Hey was also made to promote it. The video has been filmed on the same day as the recording session. The single's artwork features a painting of a yellow sunflower.

It was inspired by a protest song from the first world war

A new single by Pink Floyd‚ inspired by a first-world war protest song‚ is being released on May 25. The song's artwork features a painting of the Ukraine's national flower‚ the sunflower‚ by Cuban artist Yosan Leon. This painting reflects a historic story of a Ukrainian woman giving sunflower seeds to Russian soldiers. The song has become a symbol of resistance against the Russian invasion. Former Pink Floyd members David Gilmour and Nick Mason have released a new single in support of the Ukrainian people. The song is titled Hey Hey Rise Up‚ and features Ukrainian singer Andriy Khlyvnyuk of the BoomBox collective. Khlyvnyuk was injured during a battle and was inspired to write the song after seeing it on Andriy Khlyvnyuk's Instagram. The band reuniting was prompted by the Ukrainian situation‚ which the band has compared to a war in Europe. A song based on a protest song from the first world war has been released to help the country fight back against the Russian invasion of the Ukraine. Although Pink Floyd slowed down after the band split up in 1985‚ they have now released a new song inspired by a war protest song from the first world war. Hey Hey‚ Rise Up is a new charity single by Pink Floyd and is the band's first new release in almost 30 years. Proceeds from the single will go to Ukraine humanitarian relief efforts. The song is a remake of a Ukrainian protest song by Andriy Khlyvnyuk of Boombox. Interestingly‚ it is the first time a band has used a protest song inspired by a war protest song from the first world war.
