PINK FLOYD to Release “The Division Bell” Box Set on June 30

The Division Bell box set

The last Pink Floyd studio album, The Division Bell, will be re-released as a 20th anniversary box set on June 30th.

The seven-disc collection includes the original 11-track record, fully remastered on double vinyl, plus a new video for lead track Marooned and a set of art prints designed by long-time collaborators Hipgnosis and StormStudios. The Division Bell debuted at number one on both sides of the Atlantic on its original release in 1994, and it’s notched up over 12 million sales since.

Mainman David Gilmour said of his work with Rick Wright and Nick Mason: “The three of us went into Britannia Row Studios and improvised for two weeks. Playing together and starting from scratch was interesting and exciting – it kickstarted the album. The process was very good; it was collaborative and felt more cohesive.

The promo clip for Marooned, which won the Best Rock Instrumental Grammy in 1994, was shot in Ukraine last month.
