Listen to Yes, I Have Ghosts, David Gilmour’s first new music in half a decade

The song also features vocals and harp playing by Gilmour’s daughter.

First announced last month, David Gilmour has released his first music in five years – a single entitled Yes I Have Ghosts. Take a listen above.

The song was first released as part of the audiobook of A Theatre For Dreamers by Polly Samson, Gilmour’s wife.

The single also features the harp playing and singing voice of Gilmour’s daughter, Romany Gilmour, and was inspired by a character in Samson’s novel.


Speaking about the song in a statement, David Gilmour said: “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.”

Polly Samson, who wrote the lyrics, added: “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”
