Pink Floyd To Drop New Album In October
July 7, 2014


David Gilmour
Pink Floyd has a new album in the works that will come out in October, although the material is not exactly "new." The album will consist of unreleased songs dating back to 1994, from sessions recorded by David Gilmour, Nick Mason, and the late Richard Wright during the making of their last album, The Division Bell. Hence, since Roger Waters was not part of that album, he will not be featured on the new album either.

Gilmour's wife, Polly Samson, surprised fans on Saturday (7/5) when she announced via Twitter that the band has a new record in the works. "Btw Pink Floyd album out in October is called The Endless River," Samson wrote. "Based on 1994 sessions is Rick Wright's swansong and very beautiful."

Backup singer Durga McBroom-Hudson, who toured with Pink Floyd in the 1980s and '90s and is featured on the new project, offered more details via her Facebook page.

"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," the singer explained. "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."

Meanwhile, Pink Floyd
just celebrated the 20th anniversary of The Division Bell with an extravagant reissue of the album that was released on July 1.
