Pink Floyd has confirmed they'll be releasing a new studio album titled The Endless River in October. A message on the group's official website describes the project as "an album of mainly ambient and instrumental music based on the 1993/4 Division Bell sessions."
The note also reveals that the record is being produced by Pink Floyd's David Gilmour , along with Roxy Music guitarist Phil Manzanera , frequent Paul McCartney collaborator Youth -- aka Martin Glover -- and engineer Andy Jackson . The post adds that work on the album is still underway, and that more details about the project will be announced "at the end of the summer."
News about The Endless Summer first emerged on Saturday in a Twitter message posted by Gilmour's wife, sometime Pink Floyd lyricist Polly Samson . Durga McBroom-Hudson , a backing vocalist for both Floyd and Gilmour, then revealed more information in a couple of posts on her Facebook page that same day. Among the tidbits McBroom-Hudson shared was that Gilmour and Floyd drummer Nick Mason both have added new performances to the original 1990s recordings, and that she also will appear on the record.
