David Gilmour appeared on the UK music show The Tube and performed “Until We Sleep” live. The episode was broadcast on March 3, 1984.

“Until We Sleep” is from Gilmour’s second solo studio album “About Face”. The Who’s Pete Townshend contributed the lyrics to two of the tracks. Check out Gilmour’s performance below.

Meanwhile, Gilmour has been busy throughout the lockdown. He released his first new song in five years last July titled “Yes, I Have Ghosts”. It was previously only available on the audiobook edition of his longtime collaborator and wife Polly Samson’s novel, “A Theatre for Dreamers.”

Gilmour said in a statement, “I was working on this song just as we went into lockdown and had to cancel a session with backing singers but, as it turned out, the solution was right here and I couldn’t be happier with the way Romany’s voice blends with mine and her beautiful harp playing has been another revelation.”

According to Samson, “We didn’t set out to work together on the audiobook, but lockdown meant I had to narrate and I’m grateful to David Gilmour for stepping into the producer’s chair. We wanted to explore the creative possibilities of the format and produce something new, refreshing and innovative. Collaborating with David — as I have done many times over the last 30 years, writing songs for both Pink Floyd and his solo albums — we were able to bring together the worlds of literature and music to enhance the listening experience and connect with audiences in a way that I don’t think has been done before.”
