    Pink Floyd to release new album "The Endless River"

    Polly Samson, the wife of guitarist David Gilmour, tweeted Saturday that the band will release a new album, “The Endless River,” based on 1994 sessions.

    Btw Pink Floyd album out in October is called "The Endless River". Based on 1994 sessions is Rick Wright's swansong and very beautiful.—

    Long-time Pink Floyd touring vocalist Durga McBroom-Hudson contributed to the rumors with a Facebook post on Saturday as well.


    Pink Floyd’s label, Warner Bros., however, has not yet confirmed Samson’s tweet or responded to a request for statement.

    Gilmour is currently also working on a solo album. Keyboardist Rick Wright died in 2008 at the age of 65 of cancer.

    There’s been no word on if bassist and singer Roger Waters will appear on the album. Waters left the band in 1985 due to creative differences, though has since appeared with Pink Floyd for several performances.

    I hope it's not too wishy-washy like some of Gilmour's solo stuff. It's cool that Rick Wright stuff will be on it. I think he was a big part of their psychedelic edge.

    Nov 10

    According to a new interview in Uncut (via SteveHoffman.TV), the album has a release date of November 10th. David Gilmour and Nick Mason began the recording process in November 2013 and spent 30 days overdubbing guitars and recording drums. Roxy Music guitarist and producer Phil Manzanera was also heavily involved in the creative process.

    Update: Pink Floyd’s website has revealed the album’s artwork (above) and tracklist (below). Spanning 18 tracks, the album will be available on standard CD, double vinyl, and as a deluxe box set that includes 39-minutes of extra material. Pre-orders are now ongoing.

    Of particular note is the inclusion of original organ recordings from Pink Floyd’s Richard Wright, taken from rehearsals dating back to June 1969.

    The duo also clarified some of the ongoing rumors, namely that the material draws heavily from Gilmour’s unreleased experimental album, The Big Spliff. According to Uncut, the album is not at all based on The Big Spliff and incorporates only a few seconds from the original project. It also does not contain any material “The Soundscape”, the instrumental track originally released on the band’s 1995 Pulse Cassette.

    Rather, The Endless River contains four different pieces on each side of the record, which focus on the “more atmospheric and digressive aspects of Pink Floyd and includes snippets of conversation.” One song, “Louder Than Words”, contains lyrics embracing the full history of the band. Gilmour sings: “We bitch and we fight // But this thing that we do // It’s louder than words // The sum of our parts // The beat of our hearts/ It’s louder than words.”

    01. Things Left Unsaid
