Pink Floyd to release new album

Pink Floyd are set to release an album of previously unheard material.

The record will be the English rock band's first since 1994's The Division Bell, and will apparently be based on sessions from that album.

Band member David Gilmour's wife Polly Samson revealed the news on Twitter and the band later officially confirmed it.

Polly explained the record - titled The Endless River - would feature the work of late band member Rick Wright, who lost his battle with cancer in 2008.

Lyricist Polly said: "Btw Pink Floyd album out in October is called "The Endless River". Based on 1994 sessions is Rick Wright's swansong and very beautiful."

The official announcement added that the album would be mainly instrumental music and that it would be based on the Division Bell sessions which feature David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Richard Wright.

The Endless River will be produced by David Gilmour with Phil Manzanera, Youth and recording engineer Andy Jackson and more details are set to follow later in the summer.

Singer Durga McBroom-Hudson, who has previously worked with the Dark Side Of The Moon stars, also confirmed the news on her Facebook page.

She wrote: "YES. THERE IS A NEW PINK FLOYD ALBUM COMING OUT. AND I'M ON IT. And there was much rejoicing."
