Pink Floyd to Release New Album in October

UPDATED: Columbia Records has confirmed that Pink Floyd will release a new album in October, issuing the following statement: “Pink Floyd can confirm that they are releasing a new album ‘The Endless River’ in October 2014. It is an album of mainly ambient and instrumental music based on the 1993/4 ‘Division Bell’sessions which feature David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Richard Wright. The album is produced by David Gilmour with Phil Manzanera, Youth and recording engineer Andy Jackson. Work is still in progress, but more details to come at the end of the summer.”

It’s been 20 years since Pink Floyd released what has been known as their final album, 1994’s “The Division Bell.”

Polly Samson, the wife of guitarist David Gilmour, tweeted Saturday that the band will release a new album, “The Endless River,” based on 1994 sessions.

Long-time Pink Floyd touring vocalist Durga McBroom-Hudson contributed to the rumors with a Facebook post on Saturday as well.

“YES. THERE IS A NEW PINK FLOYD ALBUM COMING OUT,” she wrote.

Gilmour is currently also working on a solo album. Keyboardist Rick Wright died in 2008 at the age of 65 of cancer.

There’s been no word on if bassist and singer Roger Waters will appear on the album, and Columbia made no mention of him in the statement. Waters left the band in 1985 due to creative differences, though has since appeared with Pink Floyd for several performances.
