Pink Floyd reassembled (minus Roger Waters) to mash-up a new anti-war track to support Ukraine. It’s all the mournful guitar you could ever want plus the pounding marching beats you could expect from that band. David Gilmour was moved by the tweet song from Ukrainian Boombox singer Andriy Khlyvnyuk of a World War 1 song – Oh, the Red Viburnum in the Meadow. Boombox was on tour in the US, but stopped and returned to their homes. Sunsequently, Andriy Khlyvnyuk was injured in an attack and is now recovering in hospital.
Proceeds from the song will go to Ukrainian charities.

Also here’s the original tweeted song from Andriy Khlyvnyuk plus another mash-up below it featuring opera singers.
And he is not alone. https://t.co/8W7N7qDXAN
