Pink Floyd are set to release a new studio album in October under the title The Endless River and based around recording sessions in 1994 with Rick Wright. Now these snippets of information have not been confirmed from official sources and there is very little information available, however a tweet from Mrs Gilmour (Polly Samson) and comments from session vocalist Durga McBroom-Hudson strengthen notions of a new album. As to whether or not Roger Waters is involved is unknown – although it appears Nick Mason will be…
Polly Samson tweeted: “Btw Pink Floyd album out in October is called “The Endless River”. Based on 1994 sessions is Rick Wright’s swansong and very beautiful.”
American vocalist Durga McBroom-Hudson, who undertook three world tours and has appeared three Pink Floyd albums, commented on her Facebook Page: “Durga McBroom-Hudson will be included on the new Pink Floyd release. This makes 4 Pink Floyd albums I am on – I suspect that this is more than any other backing vocalist historically speaking.”
Previous comments by Graham Nash and Paul Loasby (David’s Manager) strengthened the notion and more recently recording engineer Andy Jackson said:
“Gilmour and Mason have made additional musical contributions, as well. “It is the extrapolation of the ‘Big Spliff’ — a bunch of jams from [‘The Division Bell’] sessions that have had new overdubs done in the last year or so,” Jackson says.” (Quote source: Floydian Slip).
As the cat seems to be out of the proverbial bag, it is assumed that an official announcement will be forthcoming shortly.
