Benedict Cumberbatch Sings "Comfortably Numb" With Pink Floyd's David Gilmour

During a performance at the Royal Albert Hall in London earlier this week, Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour surprised fans with a special guest: Benedict Cumberbatch, star of Sherlock, The Imitation Game, and the upcoming Marvel title Doctor Strange.

But Cumberbatch wasn’t just there to hang out and enjoy the show. He was there to sing. After Gilmour began playing “Comfortably Numb,” the actor took the center stage spotlight to sing Roger Waters’ parts of the song.

You can see a video of Cumberbatch singing with Gilmour here below.

$4 MP3 Album Deal: Pink Floyd ‘Wish You Were Here’

Pink Floyd Wish You Were Here

Pink Floyd’s Wish You Were Here is on sale today in MP3 format from Amazon for only $3.99.

The album, which was their follow up to their enormously successful 1973 release Dark Side of the Moon, is almost as revered by fans of the group as Dark Side is. Originally released in September 1975 and going to the top of the charts on both sides of the Atlantic and around the world, Wish You Were Here explores themes similar to Dark Side: alienation, confusion, longing, mental breakdown, and also even dissention in the music business. It’s also a tribute of sorts to one of their founding members, the late Syd Barrett, who had left the band a few years earlier due to mental illness. The long track “Shine on You Crazy Diamond” is a recorded nod to their fallen member, who had also made a few unannounced appearances in the studio when they were recording the album. That track opens and closes the record. The other tracks are equally memorable as well, the sing-a-long dark, doomy title track of longing and hope; “Welcome to the Machine” with its spacey, synthesized feel; and “Have A Cigar,” with guest vocals by Roy Harper and which actually sounds rather upbeat and contrasts the rest of the record nicely, acting as almost a rest stop between all the amazing heaviness and rocking ambiance which bookends it. Every record Pink Floyd released during the 1970s is essential and Wish You Were Here is no exception. A must.

Get this deal today, but be sure to also browse all 1,000 albums on sale this month for only $5 each.
