We hope you’ve seen the ‘Arnold Layne’ video by now over on the On An Island page.
Later today, we’ll be adding a video for the beautiful ‘Dark Globe’.
This tender song is originally from Syd Barrett’s debut album, ‘The Madcap Laughs’, and David’s impromptu acoustic rendition back in July was dedicated to the memory of his old friend, who had recently passed away.
As everyone knows that the blog is where you find hot news at its hottest, you can see this video right now. Please choose from the following media players and internet connection speeds:
‘Dark Globe’ is one of three tracks featured on the forthcoming ‘Arnold Layne’ single, which is available for a limited period over Christmas on 7" vinyl and CD in Europe, and on 10" vinyl (only) in North America.
You can download all three tracks from Christmas Day. Please see the Latest News page for details of how you can re-live David’s sublime performance of ‘Comfortably Numb’ at the Mermaid Theatre in March (well, as long as you’re not a Mac user, apparently).
The other two tracks are live versions of ‘Arnold Layne’ with two different vocalists – David Bowie and Richard Wright. Both were recorded at London’s Royal Albert Hall in May.
Let us know what you think of the video.
