Watch Full Pink Floyd New Album Press Video – 10min EPK

You can now watch the full Pink Floyd new album press kit on the Amazon website which runs for a full 10 minutes. Previously there have been two shorter electronic press kit videos (EPKs) made available but this is the full one for you to enjoy. The video tells the story of how the new Pink Floyd album The Endless River came about and offers some anecdotes about its recording process, including being cramped in a very small studio space with lots of recording equipment and recalling being banned from the Royal Albert Hall where they recorded Richard Wright playing the organ there which features on the new album.

The ambitious Pink Floyd exhibition in Milan, Italy called “The Pink Floyd Exhibition – Their Mortal Remains”, has officially been cancelled by the promoters Evolve Devolve.

It also contains a preview of the song Louder Than Words which the four part album slowly builds up to over 55 or so minutes. Gilmour also suggests that this is the final output from the band, Richard Wright’s tribute.

Pink Floyd New Album Cover Art Revealed

Pink floyd has revealed the cover art for their new album The Endless River. Their first album to be released in twenty years will now have a 10th November 2014 release date which has been pushed back from October 2014. The album’s starting point was the unused recordings from The Division Bell album recorded in 1993. There are keyboards recorded by the late Richard Wright from the original sessions augmented by re ordings from more recent times. Roger Waters,  bassist and main songwriter for Pink floyd past, does not feature on the new album.

However, I am sure it will be very distinctly Pink Floyd and be enjoyed by many fans. Get the 10th November in your diary, it is an exciting day for Pink Floyd...
