Well we are in the week that millions of fans all over the world have been waiting for since Polly Samson let slip that Pink Floyd were to release a new studio album in memory of the late Richard Wright.
You can watch the new promotional music video for Pink Floyd Louder Than Words here below and photos from the launch party follow the video below also. The video looks great and has some really powerful imagery captured by Po Powell and his team.
It was directed by Hipgnosis co-founder Aubrey “Po” Powell and takes footage filmed on the border between Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan. (See Rolling Stone interview).
In addition to watching the music video to Pink Floyd’s Louder Than Words single from the Endless River album, you can also see some photos below which were taken at Porchester Hall in England where David Gilmour held his 60th Birthday Party (See photos).
Lyricist and writer Polly Samson wrote the lyrics to Pink Floyd’s new song Louder Than Words which appears on their forthcoming album The Endless River.
This is not the first time Polly has written lyrics for Pink Floyd as she also did an excellent job on The Division Bell and her husband David Gilmour’s solo album On An Island.
David Gilmour said “there is something magical about the music the three of us make together” and this song is about capturing that. Your humble narrator thinks Polly has done a great job with the lyrics.
You can have a listen to Pink Floyds new song The Endless River if you can’t wait for it to be released next month in multiple formats. Keep in mind it is the “radio edit” and not the “extended edit“. The extended edit has several lines more lyrics in which are highlighted in the lyrics below.
Pink Floyd Louder Than Words Lyrics
We bitch and we fight diss each other on sight but this thing we do… These times together rain or shine or stormy weather this thing we do… With world-weary grace we’ve taken our places we could curse it or nurse it and give it a name. Or stay home by the fire felled by desire, stoking the flame. But we’re here for the ride.
It’s louder than words this thing that we do louder than words the way it unfurls. It’s louder than words the sum of our parts the beat of our hearts is louder than words. Louder than words.
The strings bend and slide as the hours glide by an old pair of shoes your favorite blues gonna tap out the rhythm. Let’s go with the flow wherever it goes. We’re more than alive.
It’s louder than words this thing that we do louder than words the way it unfurls. It’s louder than words the sum of our parts the beat of our hearts is louder than words.
Louder than words this thing they call soul it’s there with a pulse louder than words. Louder than words.
