David and Romany Gilmour’s Yes I Have Ghosts single is to be released in a limited 5K batch of Vinyl as part of the next drop of Record Store Day releases.
It is to be available as part of the “Black Friday” crazy which Amazon started about ten years ago in its pre-Christmas sales boost to help it compete with the high street.
It is a RSD exclusive, limited to 5,000 copies, it is released by Legacy and is a 7″ single.
“Yes, I Have Ghosts” is the first new song from David Gilmour in five years and features his daughter Romany on harp and vocals. The inspiration for the track was Polly Samson’s novel A Theatre for Dreamers, a Sunday Times bestseller about an idyllic poet/musician/artist community in 1960s Greece.
Roger Waters’ Us + Them UK Chart position has come in at quite a surprising position this week as it entered the UK charts.
The recording was made available in visual formats including bluray, DVD and 4k streaming. The audio was also made available as MP3, music streaming, vinyl and CD. Grab a copy.
The UK album charts has Us+Them in a number 9 in its debut week. You may recall that the drummer’s album came in at number five a couple of weeks ago. It is anyone’s guess as to what Roger will think about that!
Personally, I bought the bluray as I wanted to watch the concert as it was a visually stunning as it was musically. Really fantastic show, I was lucky enough to see it in Liverpool. I didn’t buy the CD or vinyl. Perhaps many others did this so, as far as I know, that wouldn’t therefore be counted in the UK Album charts.
Amazon had it as number 1 best selling music bluray of crouse which validates the theory that more people want to see it rather than hear it.
What are your thoughts on the chart positioning this week? Or the recording itself? Leave a comment.
