Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here Symphonic

Regulars to the Brain Damage Facebook page will have seen three teaser videos this week, all relating to a new release coming from the Decca record label, on February 5th, 2016.

Marking over 40 years of Pink Floyd's seminal album Wish You Were Here, Decca are releasing the first ever symphonic reworking of the classic record. The release has an interesting musician line-up, featuring Alice Cooper, Rick Wakeman, the London Orion Orchestra and Stephen McElroy and Dave Fowler from Australian Pink Floyd. Cooper takes on vocal duties on classic tracks such as 'Wish You Were Here' and 'Welcome to the Machine,' with Rick Wakeman on keyboards. Wish You Were Here Symphonic was recorded at Abbey Road Studios, the same studios where Pink Floyd recorded the original album.

Wish You Were Here Symphonic will be performed live in London and Birmingham in February (details:, with Frank Dunnery, guitarist from 80s rock band It Bites and long-time collaborator with Robert Plant, playing guitar. More dates are also set to be announced, with international dates and festival appearances on the horizon.

You can pre-order the album through these direct links, to the iTunes store, or Google Play, or if you prefer your music more physical than a download, you can order through these direct links too: Amazon UK,, Amazon Canada, Amazon France, Amazon Germany, Amazon Spain and Amazon Italy.
