Pink Floyd stream rare 1967 Apples And Oranges video

Pink Floyd are streaming a rare video for their 1967 single, “Apples And Oranges.”

The band’s third UK release was the final song written by co-founder Syd Barrett with the group before he was replaced by longtime friend David Gilmour.

Filmed in a Belgium fruit market, the clip sees bassist Roger Waters lip-synching to the non-album track, which was included in the 2016 package, "The Early Years 1965–1972."

The set – which gives fans the opportunity to hear the evolution of the band in their groundbreaking formative era – presents 7 individual book-style packages and feature 130 tracks, including TV recordings, BBC Sessions, outtakes and demos and more than 20 unreleased songs; also featured are 7 hours of previously unreleased live audio and more than 5 hours of rare concert footage.

Each individual book-style package was released separately early in 2017, except “Bonus Continu/ation”, which is exclusive to the box set.

Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason will perform vintage material by the legendary UK band on a fall tour of the UK and Europe.

The month-long run, which will begin in Stockholm, Sweden on September 2, follows a series of four London club shows this past spring that saw Mason present material from six of Pink Floyd’s groundbreaking first seven albums – from their 1967 debut, “The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn” to 1972’s “Obscured By Clouds.”

The rare club appearances marked Mason’s first live musical outing since Pink Floyd played at the 2005 Live 8 concert in London.
