Classic rock fans, rejoice! Today is your day: Pink Floyd have announced The Endless River, the band's first full-length in 20 years. The album is slated to drop in October of this year.
Fans can expect an album of previously unreleased material recorded prior to Rick Wright's death. The majority of the music comes from the 1994 sessions for their last album, The Division Bell.
The news was revealed by musician Durga McBroom-Hudson, who used to record with the band. She wrote on Facebook, "The recording did start during The Division Bell sessions (and yes, it was the side project originally titled "The Big Spliff" that Nick Mason spoke about). Which is why there are Richard Wright tracks on it. But David and Nick have gone in and done a lot more since then. 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." She added, this is "the closest we will ever come to a Pink Floyd comeback."
Unfortunately, Roger Waters will not be involved on the record—but we're still stoked!
