David Gilmour with Romany Gilmour - Yes, I Have Ghosts 7 inch single for Black Friday Record Store DayJust when you thought the three Record Store Days this year kept you busy with checking out what releases were coming out on the different days (or "drops"), another RSD is on its way on 27th November.

The normal RSD was split, of course, due to Covid-19 (something that has affected pretty much all aspects of life). Releases this year have included the 12" single from Nick Mason's Saucerful Of Secrets, the 7" from Pink Floyd, and the 1990 Roger Waters Berlin gig on clear vinyl.

Occasionally there's what is normally a second RSD for Black Friday (the final Friday in November), and this has now been confirmed. Whilst exact details of everything to be included are still to be confirmed, one thing that IS included, is a 7" vinyl release from Sony Legacy of "Yes, I Have Ghosts", the first new song from David Gilmour in five years which features his daughter Romany on harp and vocals. The inspiration for the track was Polly Samson's novel A Theatre for Dreamers, a Sunday Times bestseller about an idyllic poet/musician/artist community in 1960s Greece.

As with the other RSD 2020 releases, it is a limited edition: generally the RSD releases are pressed up as just a couple of thousand or so worldwide. We understand that there are going to be 5,000 of David's single available to snap up on the day.

And, as we've mentioned previously, go to RecordStoreDay.com for more details of participating stores near you. A reminder that it will ONLY be these stores selling these releases; the stores themselves can't sell them online - the record will become available for customers coming through the door of the store from the morning of the 27th (and not before), in limited quantities - first come, first served, and only one copy per customer. If copies remain (this year, normally after 6pm on the day), they may put them for sale online (and of course, there'll also be copies on eBay inevitably...).
