Let The Anticipation Begin… Pink Floyd Announces First New Album In 20 Years
Pink Floyd is making a come back after not being in the game for 20 years.
The iconic rock band has announced the release of their new album titled “The Endless River.” The album features tracks produced during the band’s 1994 recording of their last album “The Division Bell” and includes instrumentals from former band member Rick Wright, who passed away in 2008.
Polly Samson, band member David Gilmour’s partner and lyricist for the band, shared the news via Twitter Saturday morning.
Singer Durga McBroom-Hudson confirmed Samson’s tweet on the new album. Durga-McBroom sang back up vocals for the band in the ’80s and ’90s and is also excited to announce she will be working with the band on the new album as well.
“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,” McBroom-Hudson said on her Facebook page. “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.”
