The New Pink Floyd Album, The Endless River, Will Arrive November 10

They tried to keep it a secret, but after the leaks started coming out this summer, they just kinda gave up. Now we have a release date for what will be a “four-sided instrumental album.” Here’s what the two remaining Floyd members have to say about the project:

David Gilmour:The Endless River has as its starting point the music that came from the 1993 Division Bell sessions. We listened to over 20 hours of the three of us playing together and selected the music we wanted to work on for the new album. Over the last year we’ve added new parts, re-recorded others and generally harnessed studio technology to make a 21st century Pink Floyd album. With [keyboardist] Rick [Wright] gone [he died in 2008], and with him the chance of ever doing it again, it feels right that these revisited and reworked tracks should be made available as part of our repertoire.”

Nick Mason: The album is a tribute to Rick. I think this record is a good way of recognizing a lot of what he does and how his playing was at the heart of the Pink Floyd sound. Listening back to the sessions, it really brought home to me what a special player he was.”

The Endless River was produced by Gilmour, Phil Mazanera of Roxy Music, Youth and Andy Jackson. The one vocal track on the album is entitled “Louder Than Words.”
