(hennemusic) Pink Floyd have expanded their newly-launched "daily evolving playlist" with audio of a rare, alternate version of their 1975 classic, "Have A Cigar."

Recorded during sessions for the band's "Wish You Were Here" album and originally issued on the "Immersion" 2011 box set, this version features David Gilmour and Roger Waters on vocals instead of UK folk singer Roy Harper, who appeared on the original release.

Pink Floyd kicked off their daily playlist on May 22 with audio of a rare, 1974 performance of "The Dark Side Of The Moon" classic, "Us & Them."

Entitled "Syd, Roger, Richard, Nick and David - An Evolving Pink Floyd Playlist", the feature will see the band add a new song from their catalogue to the playlist via Spotify and other streaming outlets each day - from the best known classics to deeper album tracks.

Each Friday, as a bonus, Pink Floyd will add one of the currently unavailable bonus tracks that were featured in the "Immersion" boxsets a few years back.

"During this period of lockdown, isolation and uncertainty," says Pink Floyd, "it might help to make time each day to immerse yourself in music; each day, this will build into the perfect playlist to help you navigate these challenging times.

"We hope you enjoy reconnecting with these tracks over the coming weeks, and would love to hear your suggestions for what you think could be added to the playlist..." Stream both versions of "Have A Cigar" here.
