The first single and video from the all-star Pink Floyd covers album Still Wish You Were Here has been released: a version of “Have a Cigar,” sung by Dream Theater vocalist James LaBrie.
In the video, actor Noel Jason Scott, who bears more than a passing resemblance to Harvey Weinstein, lip-syncs along to LaBrie’s voice, playing the role of the evil record executive who lures an innocent young rocker into signing his life away. That means he gets to lip-sync the classic line, “Oh, by the way, which one’s Pink?”
As previously reported, Still Wish You Were Here is a reimagining of Floyd’s classic 1975 album Wish You Were Here, featuring artists including Todd Rundgren, Zombies keyboardist Rod Argent, Deep Purple drummer Ian Paice, ex-Yes keyboardist Rick Wakeman and former Genesis guitarist Steve Hackett. The album is out today.
In addition to LaBrie, the version of “Have a Cigar” was recorded with Billy Idol guitarist Steve Stevens, former The Moody Blues keyboardist Patrick Moraz, and former The Damned and Public Image Ltd. members Rat Scabies and Jah Wobble, respectively.
