Pink Floyd Announces First Album in 20 Years
The last listeners heard new music from Pink Floyd, it was 1994, but now 20 years later, the band – or most of it, based on confirmations – has a follow up planned.
Titled The Endless River, the new release is expected to drop in October 2014. The first announcement came from David Gilmour’s wife Polly Samson, who put out a statement on Twitter. On July 5, she said: “Btw Pink Floyd album out in October is called ‘The Endless River’. Based on 1994 sessions is Rick Wright's swansong and very beautiful.”
Touring vocalist Durga McBroom-Hudson went onto confirm the plans and provided more details in the process. She posted a picture of their sessions to Facebook and said that some of the songs for Endless date back to their Division Bell sessions and others from side project The Big Spliff. She wrote: "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."
Right now, Roger Waters, who is supposedly working on a solo album, hasn’t confirmed involvement in the project.
The Endless River comes after The Division Bell. The 1994 album reached No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and generated two singles.
