Pink Floyd To Release New Album in October

To commemorate the twentieth anniversary of The Division Bell, Pink Floyd is set to release a new album, The Endless River sometime in October. The album is based on a 1994 session with Richard Wright. David Gilmour’s wife, Polly Samson, initially announced the new album in a tweet that read, “Btw Pink Floyd album out in October is called ‘The Endless River[.]'”

Touring backing vocalist, Durga McBroom-Hudson gave more information on the album on her Facebook page, along with a picture, stating, “The recording did start during The Division Bell sessions (and yes, it was the side project originally titled “The Big Spliff” that Nick Mason spoke about). Which is why there are Richard Wright tracks on it. But David and Nick have gone in and done a lot more since then. It was originally to be a completely instrumental recording, but I came in last December and sang on a few tracks. David then expanded on my backing vocals and has done a lead on at least one of them. That’s the song you see being worked on in the photo.”

The Endless River is set to release the October of this year.
