Pink Floyd to release new album after 20-year gap

2014-07-09 01:00

London - A fresh Pink Floyd album is on the way — 20 years after the band last released new material.

Spokesperson Doug Wright confirmed on Monday that The Endless River will be released in October. It's described as consisting of "mainly ambient and instrumental music" based on 1993-94 recording sessions for the group's last album, The Division Bell.

The Endless River features band members David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Richard Wright, who died in 2008. Roger Waters, who left the group in 1985, is not involved.

Gilmour's wife, writer Polly Samson, tweeted that the album "is Rick Wright's swansong and very beautiful".

The psychedelic superstars sold millions of copies of albums including The Dark Side of the Moon and The Wall. They last performed together at the 2005 Live 8 charity concert.
