Musical Burst: Pink Floyd Set to Return with New Album ‘The Endless River’ in October
Pink Floyd, one of the most legendary rock groups of all-time, hasn’t released an album in 20 years. Now the wait appears over.
Pink Floyd is ready to return with a new album in the next several months according to lead singer David Gilmour’s wife, author Polly Samson who co-wrote the lyrics to most of the songs on the band’s last album The Division Bell. You can see the video Pink Floyd just put out for “Marooned” from their last album above.
On Twitter, where news of the upcoming album leaked, Samson wrote:
Btw Pink Floyd album out in October is called ‘The Endless River’. Based on 1994 sessions is Rick Wright’s swansong and very beautiful.
Wright, the first keyboardist for Pink Floyd, passed away in 2008. When he passed, Gilmour said:
No one can replace Richard Wright. He was my musical partner and my friend. In the welter of arguments about who or what was Pink Floyd, Rick’s enormous input was frequently forgotten. He was gentle, unassuming, and private, but his soulful voice and playing were vital, magical components of our most recognised Pink Floyd sound.
No word has been given yet on whether Roger Waters will be making an appearance on the album. But the excitement couldn’t be greater as Pink Floyd has maintained a steadfast fan base over the years with their timeless psychedelic rock sound. And hasn’t everyone gone through at least one exclusive Pink Floyd listening phase in their lives?
