Pink Floyd Release Another Audio Clip From Upcoming Album 'The Endless River' [LISTEN]
A third clip from Pink Floyd's highly anticipated album The Endless River has surfaced, and there's a lot of guitar.
The band will release the album on November 10, and over the past month they've been feeding fans' appetites with snippets of songs, NME notes. The newest taste (listen below) includes a good old-fashioned guitar solo leading a freight-train melody. None of the teasers for the album, which contains contributions from late bandmate Richard Wright, feature any vocals, but they all sound like vintage Pink Floyd (check them out here and here).
"'The Endless River' is a tribute to Rick Wright, whose keyboards are at the heart of the Pink Floyd sound," a statement about the material read. "It is a mainly instrumental album with one song, 'Louder Than Words', (with new lyrics by Polly Samson), arranged across four sides and produced by David Gilmour, Phil Manzanera, Youth and Andy Jackson."
Co-founder and bassist Roger Waters took to Facebook recently to remind fans that he left the band in 1985 and that he did not work on the record. "David Gilmour and Nick Mason have an album coming out. It's called Endless River," he wrote. "David and Nick constitute the group Pink Floyd. I on the other hand, am not part of Pink Floyd. I left Pink Floyd in 1985, that's 29 years ago. I had nothing to do with either of the Pink Floyd studio albums, Momentary Lapse Of Reason and The Division Bell, nor the Pink Floyd tours of 1987 and 1994, and I have nothing to do with Endless River."
In 2010, Waters went on the road with his The Wall Live tour where he played music from Pink Floyd's 1979 classic album.
