The 20th Anniversary edition of Pink Floyd’s Division Bell is released today and gets the special deluxe box set treatment for fans to enjoy.
In addition to the box set, there is also a double vinyl if you do not want to invest in the full box set.
The boxset includes all sorts of goodies as with the Immersion Editions of Wish You Were Here, Dark Side of the Moon and The Wall. The goodies in those box sets kept many fans happy for some time. The Division Bell boxset continues along that theme.
The box set contains 6 discs (CD and Vinyl mix), collector’s prints, a blu-ray disc and features a 5.1 mix of the album released for the first time, mixed and mastered by Andy Jackson and Damon Iddins. The blu-ray disc also features a new music video for the song Marooned which was directed by Aubrey Powell at Hipgnosis. See full list of boxset contents at end of article.

With the Division Bell soon to have it’s 20th Anniversary, and in addition to the new boxset and LP releases, there is a wonderful new music video for the song Marooned from The Division Bell album.
The video is set in Chernobyl after the famous nuclear power incident caused the entire area to be abandoned due to contamination. Eerie and spooky. You can watch that below.
Marooned is an instrumental piece and was written by David Gilmour and Rick Wright. Many of the songs on The Division Bell album had lyrics written by David’s wife, Polly Samson. Polly would go on to write many of the lyrics on David’s On An Island album too and she is also working on David Gilmour’s new album. Indeed, she was stuck on writing a lyric only recently as revealed on her Twitter account.
Roger Waters & David Gilmour New Albums
I am looking forward to hearing the two new albums from Roger Waters and David Gilmour which could get released this year. Stay tuned for more info on that! I would also expect that they would tour their new albums so there could be some concert announcements this year also which would be amazing.
It was spectacular to watch Roger Waters performing The Wall at Wembley Stadium last year but seeing some new music could be even better. The On An Island tour was also excellent and your humble narrator here saw it at the Bridgewater Hall in Manchester. Great show. Looking forward to some more live performances from Mr Gilmour which, if anything like the On An Island tour, should be most excellent indeed.
