3 stars Usually I don't review singles, but this one deserves some words. It's nothing more than an acoustic effort of Sir David with some strings arrangements and a chord sequence reminding of Fat Old Sun, just much more melancholic, but I think this is going to become an important song as it's effectively the debut of David's daughter Romany.

There's one funny photo of her and his father on the web, and before this single this was the only clue that I had of her existence.

Well, other than guitar, as probably obvious, she plays harp. This is her instrument in the single. She has a very nice voice and harmonizes perfectly wit dad's baritonal singing.

Not a bad song, also. Surely not a masterpiece but it could easily feature in any David Gilmour's album as it's quite in line with the mood of his last one. A song like this would have been really better than the rubbish remix used to fill the last album.

So it's a 3-stars song and hopefully the beginning of a great career for Romany.
