Wowee everyone, Pink Floyd went and made an LP! Their first in a very long time, no less. Not since the days of 1994’s ‘The Division Bell’ has a Pink Floyd record been so… well, simply ‘been’. It’s arriving in October ‘btw’.

The new kid on the PF block, ‘The Endless River’, will stem from sessions that happened at the same time the band were making ‘Division Bell’, specifically linked to a never-released side-project titled ‘The Big Spliff’. So, go figure. It’ll feature late Pink Floyd original Rick Wright, who died in 2008, acting as his ‘swansong’.

Confirming the news over the weekend, PF lyricist and Mrs David Gilmour Polly Samson tweeted: “Btw Pink Floyd album out in October is called ‘The Endless River’. Based on 1994 sessions is Rick Wright’s swansong and very beautiful”.

And sharing a photo from the studio, backing vocalist Durga McBroom Hudson had this to say about the LP via Facebook: “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”.

“I don’t know if there will be a tour or not yet, stay tuned”, she added, being a big tease.
