Pink Floyd has recently shared the official music video for "Welcome to the Machine", taken from their 1975 album "Wish You Were Here". You can watch the full video above.

Created and hand-drawned by English cartoonist Gerald Scarfe, the video was initially intended for a backdrop film for when the band performed the song live during their 1977 tour.

The song is said to be inspired by George Orwell's 1984 book which tells a story of a man who tries to escape the government that brainwashes its citizens with TV shows and oppressive rules.
