First New David Gilmour Music in Five Years: 'Yes, I Have Ghosts'


The track "features the voice and harp playing of [David Gilmour's] daughter Romany. The inspiration for the track was Polly Samson's new novel A Theatre for Dreamers."


Gilmour states: "I was working on this song just as we went in to 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".


According to davidgilmour.com, "Polly 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.'"


The Sunday Times bestseller A Theatre for Dreamers by Polly Samson is out now and published by Bloomsbury.


A Theatre for Dreamers audiobook is available here.
