Pink Floyd to Release New Album; No Plans to Tour

Pink Floyd will release a new album, The Endless River, in October, marking the band’s first studio effort in 20 years. The release will coincide with the deluxe reissue of their fourteenth album, Division Bell, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year.

Polly Samson, the wife of David Gilmour, revealed the news on Twitter. Samson added that the album is “based on 1994 sessions” with the late Richard Wright.

According to the The Sun, the band has no plans for an accompanying tour and bassist Roger Waters was not involved with the project. An official announcement is expected today.

UPDATE: Per the official announcement from the band, the album will feature mainly ambient and instrumental music based on the 1993-94 Division Bell sessions with David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Richard Wright. The album is produced by David Gilmour and Phil Manzanera.

I saw that coming.

When I first read this, from my perspective it was the musical news of the century. However; after reading that it will consist of “ambient” music, I’m a bit skeptical. I hope this isn’t something that should have been a Gilmour solo project with a Mason sit-in.

A DE reissue of DB and yet nothing on a big box for ANIMALS??? It’s frustrating loving their best album that they seem to never acknowledge. Guess I’ll have to content myself with the thousandth remaster box of DSOTM.
