Yes, but where will the money go?
Gilmour to release Barrett single
Pink Floyd star David Gilmour is to release a single featuring songs by former band member Syd Barrett.
The EP will feature live performances of two songs written by the reclusive guitarist, who died this year.
One of the tracks, Arnold Layne, features vocals from David Bowie, who appeared at one of Gilmour's Royal Albert Hall gigs over the summer.
Barrett was a founder member of Pink Floyd and an influential songwriter, penning the band's early hits.
Gilmour's EP will feature two versions of the psychedelic single Arnold Layne, which reached number 20 in 1967 - despite a ban from the BBC.
As well as Bowie's performance, there will be a recording featuring vocals from Pink Floyd keyboard player Richard Wright.
The third track is a solo acoustic performance of Dark Globe, one of the tracks from Barrett's first solo album, The Madcap Laughs.
It will be released as a download on Christmas Day, and will be available in shops a day later.
