David Gilmour performs Morning Has Broken

David Gilmour is sharing video of an acoustic performance of the Christian hymn “Morning Has Broken.”

The Pink Floyd guitarist delivered the song during a recent livestream event as part of an ongoing series billed as the Von Trapped Family; the latest episode celebrated the US release of his son Charlie Gilmour's memoir, “Featherhood.”

“Morning Has Broken” was a worldwide hit for Cat Stevens (now Yusuf Islam) in 1972; it reached No. 6 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and topped the US Easy Listening chart while going Top 10 in several countries.

Last fall, Pink Floyd released a series of reissues of their restored 1988 live package, “Delicate Sound Of Thunder”, which featured the band in concert during a 5-night residency at the Nassau Coliseum in Long Island, NY as part of a tour in support of their thirteenth studio album, “A Momentary Lapse Of Reason.”
