New Pink Floyd album to be the last says David Gilmour


singer David Gilmour has said he is "pretty certain" the band's latest album will be their final LP.

Speaking to BBC 6 Music's Matt Everitt, he said: "This is the last thing that'll be out from us."

The record, The Endless River, is a tribute to Pink Floyd's keyboard player Rick Wright, who died in 2008.

Gilmour said Wright was "underestimated by the public, by the media and by us at times I hate to say".

The album will be released in November and will included material recorded by Wright before his death at the age of 65.

Gilmour said: "I didn't necessarily always give him his proper due. People have very different attitudes to the way they work and we can become very judgemental and think someone is not quite pulling his weight enough, without realising that their's is a different weight to pull."



Bandmate Drummer Mason added: "It is a great opportunity to recognise, remember and maybe give some credit rather late on."

Pink Floyd were formed in London in 1965 by Syd Barrett, Nick Mason, Roger Waters, and Richard Wright.

Gilmour joined the band in 1967 and Barrett, who suffered from mental health problems left a year later.

Their albums, which include The Dark Side of the Moon, The Wall and Wish You Were Here are listed among the most influential rock albums of the 20th Century.

He might have underestimated Waters too. Gilmore may be a very talented musician but Waters was the true genius.

Floyd launch artwork for The Endless River, their first album in 20 years



Pink Floyd are likely to sell more of their latest album as downloads and on CD than vinyl, but they are still entreating their fans to listen to it as four “sides” of two LP records.
The Endless River, a reworking of unused material created for the Division Bell 21 years ago, will be released on November 10 as 18 tracks in four groupings the length of a side of a record to “invoke the album listening experience”.

I agree with your statement except Sid Barett was the one that got them really going in my humble opinion . If you want to really get moved you have to check out the book written by Nick Mason about his experience of 40 some years with his mates from Pink Floyd its title is Inside Out i just got a hard copy from the local library the other day .

Its loadaed with never ever seen snap shots and the writing ia simply fantastic no other memoir was published about Pink Floyd . I already ordered my own copy from Amazon its a must have in my opinion

The Endless River represents a return to the creative principles that informed the writing process that produced Pink Floyd classics like Echoes, Shine On You Crazy Diamond and Animals.

In early 1993, David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Richard Wright set up their equipment in their own Britannia Row Studios in Islington and created more than hundred pieces of music by jamming together, interacting with each other's performances and recording the results.

They then honed the pieces at David's Astoria floating studio, played them live for 2 days at Olympic Studios in Barnes with an extended lineup (Guy Pratt on bass, Jon Carin on keyboards and Gary Wallis on percussion). After that, the core trio returned to Astoria, and worked further on the compositions, alongside co-producer Bob Ezrin, refining the structure, tempos and arrangements. The result, after lyrics and vocals were added, was the 12 million selling 'Division Bell' album.

At the time, there had been talk of a separate ambient album being created from the non-vocal tracks not subsequently issued on 'The Division Bell', but the idea was eventually dropped.

In 2014 David Gilmour and Nick Mason re-entered the studio and, starting with unreleased keyboard performances by Richard Wright, who sadly died in 2008, added further instrumentation to the tracks, as well as creating new material. The result is The Endless River, including 60% of recordings other than the 1993 sessions, but based upon them. The title is a further link, '... the endless river...' being part of the closing phrases of High Hopes, the final song of the previous Pink Floyd album.

David Gilmour describes the record as follows: "The Endless River has as its starting point the music that came from the 1993 Division Bell sessions. We listened to over 20 hours of the three of us playing together and selected the music we wanted to work on for the new album. Over the last year we've added new parts, re-recorded others and generally harnessed studio technology to make a 21st century Pink Floyd album. With Rick gone, and with him the chance of ever doing it again, it feels right that these revisited and reworked tracks should be made available as part of our repertoire."

Stylistically, The Endless River includes all of the musical elements that characterize Pink Floyd: mellifluous keyboards, jazz-tinged drums, musique concrete, ethereal vocals, and distinctive, emotional lead guitar. As well as Pink Floyd's trademark backing vocals, there is one vocal track, with lyrics by author Polly Samson, who also contributed to The Division Bell.
