DAVID GILMOUR: “New Pink Floyd Album is Emotional and Evocative”

Pink Floyd

In a recent interview with Uncut magazine, Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour has described the band’s upcoming album, The Endless River, as “emotional and evocative.”

The Endless River, an album that is a tribute to late keyboardist Rick Wright, will be released on November 10. It is comprised of the reworked material that was created during the band’s sessions for 1993′s The Division Bell.

Gilmour says: “To me, it’s very evocative and emotional in a lot of moments. And listening to all the stuff made me regret Rick’s passing all over again. 

This is the last chance someone will get to hear him playing along with us on that way he did.

Drummer Nick Mason previously state: “This record is a good way of recognising a lot of what Rick does and how his playing was at the heart of the Pink Floyd sound. Listening back to the sessions, it really brought home to me what a special player he was.

The Endless River is mostly instrumental, and it will be available as double vinyl.

The record will not feature original Pink Floyd bassist Roger Waters, who left the band in 1985. Speaking last year, drummer Nick Mason revealed that he would be interested in a full band reunion, but was not certain it will ever materialise.

I would do it… I’m ready to go,” he said when asked about the prospects of a reunion.

I’m packed, I have my drum kit, a suitcase and a wash bag by my front door ready for it when I ever get the call. But I’m not holding my breath.
