LOUDER THAN WORDS’ GETS FIRST RADIO PLAY
“Louder Than Words the new song by Pink Floyd, had its first radio play yesterday on BBC Radio 2’s Chris Evans show.
Louder Than Words is performed by Pink Floyd. Taken from David Gilmour, Rick Wright and Nick Mason’s 1993 Division Bell sessions it has new lyrics by writer and Division Bell lyricist Polly Samson.
David Gilmour said: “The music for Louder Than Words is from those final sessions, the three of us playing together on the houseboat Astoria with Rick’s idiosyncratic keyboards reminding me now that you don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone. At the start of the album I asked Polly [Samson] to write the lyrics. She felt that what I played her didn’t need words, that hearing us play was more interesting. In the end she wrote just this one, which expresses, beautifully I think, the way the three of us, me, Nick and Rick have something when we play together, that has a magic that is louder than words”.” Source: Pink Floyd
