A new 9 minute video has been published on Amazon’s website featuring an interview with David Gilmour and Nick Mason.
You can watch it, using a desktop computer, at this link.
They are discussing the new Pink Floyd Album, The Endless River, which is released in the UK 10th November 2014. It has been released in many countries already including Italy, Germany and other territories. Your humble narrator received a copy today and is about to listen to it for the first time!
In the interview, Nick and David talk through the album recording process in terms of how the music came about and how samples were recording during jamming sessions. There is a particular focus on Richard Wright’s contribution to the album.
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 management were also not pleased with Nick Mason putting nails in the stage to keep his drum kit in place!
Tomorrow is the month in which the new album is released on multiple formats. To see the formats in which the new Pink Floyd album is released, take a look at our Endless River Pink Floyd article.
