Pink Floyd is set to release a new album entitled The Endless River on Nov. 7. This is the first album released under the Pink Floyd name since the band released The Division Bell in 1994.
The album has been largely written by guitarist and vocalist David Gilmour, and also features a co-founding member with Nick Mason on the drums. Roger Waters, a co-founding member, is still not involved, and is continuing his hiatus from the band that began after the 1983 album The Final Cut was released.
This album is said to be an expansion and continuation of the band’s last album, The Division Bell. Which is how the band is including the work of Richard Wright.
Wright was a co-founding member of the band and worked with Pink Floyd as long as he lived. Wright died in 2005, but the band is incorporating his unused music from The Division Bell.
The band released the single Louder Than Words and several 30-second excerpts from songs to give fans a preview of the album. These audio previews are all available online.
Pink Floyd has not given any indication of a tour to promote the album, but many fans are still excited in anticipation of what is very possibly the final Pink Floyd album.
