some details on the "new" album

It is not based on The Big Spliff

Only a few seconds of the original Big Spliff (which was created by Andy Jackson) appear.

It does not contain any source from The Soundscape (Pulse Cassette)

Rick Wrights original recording from playing the Organ at The Royal Albert Hall during afternoon rehearsals in June 1969 has been mixed in.

The LP is based on four different pieces each taking a side each.

There is one song with lyrics called "Louder Than Words". This song is concerned with providing a full stop to the Pink Floyd saga, embracing the full history of the band. Gilmour sings ;

We bitch and we fight
But this thing that we do
It's louder than words
The sum of our parts
The beat of our hearts
It's louder than words

It focuses on the more atmospheric and digressive aspects of Pink Floyd and includes snippets of conversation.

Phil Manzanera played a key role throughout the project which started in August 2012 by Gilmour asking him to listen to the jam sessions.

Nick Masons drumming was the first element to be recorded in November 2013.

Gilmour and Mason spent in total 30 days over dubbing guitars and recording drums.

Apparently a very interactive and positive experience with Mason and Gilmour playing together again

Release date is 10th November.

There is much more context in the article, but hopefully this gives you an insight.

Waiting for the Pitchfork review that complains about "that one-size-fits-all, vaguely inspirational tone, with a lean approach to details" and says this album is a celebration of self-absorption.

more deets



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.

Mason added:
The Endless River is a tribute to Rick. I think this record is a good way of recognizing a lot of what he 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 record was produced by Gilmour, Phil Manzanera, Martin "Youth" Glover, and Andy Jackson. The tracklist, which you can see below, is divided into four sides to "invoke the album listening experience," according to a press release. It's mostly instrumental, with one song, "Louder Than Words", featuring lyrics by Polly Samson. The cover art is based on a design by Ahmed Emad Eldin, an 18-year old Egyptian artist, and "re-created" by design agency Stylorouge.

Side 1:
01 Things Left Unsaid
02 It’s What We Do
03 Ebb And Flow

Side 2:
04 Sum
05 Skins
06 Unsung
07 Anisina

Side 3:
08 The Lost Art of Conversation
09 On Noodle Street
10 Night Light
11 Allons-y (1)
12 Autumn’68
13 Allons-y (2)
14 Talkin’ Hawkin’

Side 4:
15 Calling
16 Eyes To Pearls
17 Surfacing
18 Louder Than Words

I'll be going into it with tempered expectations. I don't really view it as a new Pink Floyd album.

Excited that there'll be a focus on Rick Wright though. Love everything I've heard of him.
