David Gilmour's wife, Polly Samson, let the cat out of the bag over the weekend, tweeting about the upcoming release of a new album by her husband's legendary group, Pink Floyd. The story went viral, and today the band broke down and confirmed the news on its website with the following statement:
Pink Floyd can confirm that they are releasing a new album, The Endless River, in October 2014. It is an album of mainly ambient and instrumental music based on the 1993/4 Division Bell sessions which feature David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Richard Wright. The album is produced by David Gilmour with Phil Manzanera, Youth and recording engineer Andy Jackson. Work is still in progress, but more details to come at the end of the summer.
So there you have it. Time to start harvesting that stuff out behind the garage, if you know what I mean and I think you do.
