Pink Floyd Go Electro On New Dance Record

Pink Floyd's classic “Another Brick In The Wall” is sampled on Swedish house DJ Eric Prydz’s forthcoming dance record “Proper Education.”

The single, playlisted on Radio 1 a phenomenal seven weeks early, is Prydz’s follow up single to 2004’s number one hit “Call On Me.”

This is the first time a Pink Floyd track has ever been officially cleared.

“Proper Education” uses both the original David Gilmour vocals and musical elements of the Floyd's 1979 hit to make a modern crossover hit.

The single is released on January 1, through Ministry of Sound.
