Pink Floyd reveal details of ‘mainly ambient’ new album

'The Endless River' will be released in October

Pink Floyd have revealed details of their new album ‘The Endless River’, which will be released in October 2014.

According to a statement from the band, the album consists of “mainly ambient and instrumental music” which was recorded during the sessions for their last album, 1994’s ‘The Division Bell’.

The album will also include music recorded with multi-instrumentalist Richard Wright (pictured left), who died in 2008 aged 65.


The band’s David Gilmour is producing the LP with Roxy Music’s Phil Manzanera, Youth and recording engineer Andy Jackson. According to the band, “Work is still in progress, but more details to come at the end of the summer”.

Earlier this year, Pink Floyd released a new boxset of their last studio album, ‘The Division Bell’, to mark its 20th anniversary.

The album was originally recorded by the band at guitarist David Gilmour’s Astoria houseboat studio and Britannia Row Studios in London, with the majority of the lyrics written by Gilmour and his partner Polly Samson. The anniversary boxset discs were remastered by long-term Pink Floyd collaborators James Guthrie and Joel Plante.
