Woodstock vet's new album features Floyd song

Singer/songwriter Richie Havens has included a Pink Floyd song on his latest album, "Wishing Well." Floyd's "On the Turning Away" is featured on the album. The song, written by David Gilmour and Anthony Moore, first appeared on 1987's "A Momentary Lapse of Reason."

Havens has released 30 albums over his 35-year recording career. He's perhaps best known for opening the 1969 Woodstock concert, and for covering "Here Comes in the Sun" in 1971. Havens's recording of the Beatles tune has been his only top 40 hit.

"Wishing Well" was released April 23.
