Pink Floyd fans can rejoice on the news of the band’s first new(ish) record in 20 years, set for release in October. “The Endless River” will be based on tracks recorded during sessions (dubbed “The Big Spliff”) for 1994’s “Division Bell” with the lineup of guitarist/vocalist David Gilmour, drummer Nick Mason, and keyboardist Richard Wright, who died in 2008. Representatives for the band’s former leader, bassist Roger Waters, confirm that he remains uninvolved in the band’s current pursuits.
The news was first broken by David Gilmour’s wife, novelist and Pink Floyd contributing lyricist Polly Samson, via Twitter, who put it this way:
“Btw Pink Floyd album out in October is called “The Endless River”. Based on 1994 sessions is Rick Wright’s swansong and very beautiful.”
