David Gilmour recently released a demo version of ‘Yet Another Movie.’ He dropped the demo before releasing a reissue of Pink Floyd’s first album following Roger Waters’ departure.
Pink Floyd was founded by Syd Barrett, Nick Mason, Roger Waters, Richard Wright, and Bob Klose in 1964. In December 1967, vocalist and guitarist David Gilmour joined the band. However, he had numerous clashing opinions with Waters, and this resulted in Waters’ departure in 1985.
After Waters left the band, Gilmour and Mason continued to make musical efforts as Pink Floyd. Moreover, they produced two more albums, ‘A Momentary Lapse Of Reason’ in 1987 and ‘The Division Bell’ in 1994. After releasing one more album in 2014, Pink Floyd decided to leave the music scene.
Nowadays, Pink Floyd is getting ready to release the reissue of ‘A Momentary Lapse Of Reason’ on October 29. Ahead of the release, David Gilmour shared a demo of the song ‘Yet Another Movie.’
As reported by NME, David Gilmour talked about the album and said they decided to rework it to make it more timeless. He also said they used some traditional instruments during the recording along with previously unused keyboard parts of Wright. According to Gilmour, these elements helped them come up with a new feeling towards the album.
According to NME, David Gilmour stated that:
“Some years after we had recorded the album, we came to the conclusion that we should update it to make it more timeless, featuring more of the traditional instruments that we liked and that we were more used to playing.
This was something we thought it would benefit from. We also looked for and found some previously unused keyboard parts of Rick’s which helped us to come up with a new vibe, a new feeling for the album.”
