David Gilmour has released his first solo song in five years.

The heartrending Yes, I Have Ghosts boasts a twinkling, gently-plucked melody and features the former Pink Floyd guitarist's daughter Romany on backing vocals and harp.

The new track first came to light last month when it appeared on the audiobook for A Theatre For Dreamers, a new novel by Gilmour's wife and author Polly Samson. Give it a spin below.

He 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.”

David Gilmour's last solo LP was 2015's 'Rattle That Lock'. It is currently unclear whether Yes, I Have Ghosts will feature on a future full-length release.
