Pink Floyd Removed Their Music from Streaming Platforms in Russia and Belarus

David Gilmour said he and Pink Floyd are protesting Russia’s invasion of Ukraine by removing a large portion of their music catalog from streaming properties in Russia and Belarus.

“To stand with the world in strongly condemning Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the works of Pink Floyd, from 1987 onwards, and all of David Gilmour’s solo recordings are being removed from all digital music providers in Russia and Belarus from today,” an announcement shared Friday to the band’s Twitter account states.

The included works that are set to be leaving Russian and Belarusian streaming platforms are Pink Floyd studio albums “A Momentary Lapse of Reason”, “The Division Bell” as well as 2014’s “The Endless River.”

Gilmour has released four solo studio albums in his career, the most recent being “Rattle That Lock” in 2015. His entire solo discography is also being removed from streamers.

Last week, Gilmour tweeted in support of Ukraine, writing, “Russian soldiers, stop killing your brothers.''
