David Gilmour is releasing his recent recordings of three Syd Barrett songs, first as digital downloads on 25 December, and then as a three track EP, titled Arnold Layne, available in shops on 26 December in 7” vinyl and CD formats.
The Arnold Layne EP is a rare gem as it features two unique versions of the Syd Barrett classic as well as David Gilmour’s first ever public performance of Dark Globe.
The new recordings are:
Arnold Layne - David Gilmour, featuring David Bowie (live from the Royal Albert Hall May 2006)
Arnold Layne - David Gilmour, featuring Richard Wright (live from the Royal Albert Hall May 2006)
Dark Globe - David Gilmour (August 2006) acoustic version recorded live at one of David’s Summer European shows
This limited edition EP will be available for 3 weeks only, following release. It marks the first time that David Gilmour has performed Dark Globe, one of the classic tracks from Barrett’s first solo album, The Madcap Laughs.
