Pink Floyd have released updated versions of two songs.
The first is a remix of the 17-minute "Dogs" off of 1977's Animals.
It's the first listen to the 2018 mix of their 10th album. which will be released on September 16th in multiple configurations -- CD, vinyl, Blu-ray and SACD. A deluxe, limited-edition set that contains all the formats will follow on October 7th.
The other release is a new version of their 1994 song “A Great Day for Freedom,” which is the B-side on the physical copies of their new song, “Hey Hey Rise Up.”
A post on the band's website states, "Using 'A Great Day For Freedom' as the B-side of the new Pink Floyd single, 'Hey Hey Rise Up' seemed like an obvious and relevant choice. And David Gilmour has, for some time, wanted to record a simpler more direct version of the song.
"So here it is, with a newly edited video taken from a Pulse rehearsal during Pink Floyd's two-week run at Earl's Court, London, in 1994.
"The recording, using the original drums and bass by Nick Mason and David, has keyboards by Rick Wright and backing vocals by Claudia, Sam and Durga taken from the Pulse rehearsals. New piano, Prophet 5 synthesizer and Hammond B3 organ are played by David, as on the original demo.
“A Great Day for Freedom,” inspired by the fall of the Berlin Wall, was released on the 1994 album, The Division Bell.
"Hey, Hey, Rise Up!," was recorded in support of the people of Ukraine, and is Floyd's first new song since The Division Bell album.
