Pink Floyd’s single «Hey, Hey, Rise Up» with vocals by Andriy Khlyvniuk, frontman of Ukrainian band «Boombox», topped the iTunes charts in 25 countries. This was reported on the Boombox official website.
Among the countries are the USA, UK, France, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, Australia, Canada, Poland, Czech Republic, Finland, Greece, Italy, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Paraguay, Portugal, New Zealand, Norway, Romania, Slovakia, South Africa, Sweden, and Switzerland.
«Given that the money raised from the release goes to Ukraine, it seems that everything turned out fine. Many thanks to Pink Floyd and personally to David Gilmour,» – Boombox musicians added.
We will add that this is the first composition of the legendary band composed during the last 28 years. David Gilmour, the guitarist and co-lead vocalist of Pink Floyd, gathered all the musicians to support the Ukrainians who are heroically defending their country from invaders. The track uses Khlyvniuk’s vocals from his popular Instagram video, where he and the choir sing on Sofia Square in Kyiv.
The description of the video states that the song was recorded in support of the people of Ukraine. The artists also released a music video for «Hey, Hey, Rise». The video contains footage of the war in Ukraine.
