For the first time in 20 years, the psychedelic rock band Pink Floyd will be releasing a new album. The new album is Pink Floyd’s first since The Division Bell was released in 1994 and will be based on previously unreleased recordings from sessions for that album.
The new album release has been confirmed by Polly Samson, wife of guitarist David Gilmour, as well as Durga McBroom-Hudson, one of the band’s past touring singers.
Pink Floyd reached widespread global fame in 1973 with the release of Dark Side of the Moon—an album that would retain a place on the weekly U.S. Billboard top 200 chart for 14 straight years. The English rock group’s last full gig together was in 1985. They also headlined the charity concert Live8 in 2005 before Richard Wright died aged 65 in 2008. The band recently shot down rumors of a reunion tour, much to the disappointment of many fans (for now).
