Pink Floyd have released a video for the track “Louder Than Words” from the new album ‘The Endless River.’ The song is the only track to contain lyrics and features David Gilmour singing vocals with vocals from long-time Pink Floyd lyricist Polly Samson. The Endless River is mainly a 4 sided instrumental album.
The Endless River has as its starting point the music that came from the 1993 Division Bell sessions, when David Gilmour, Rick Wright and Nick Mason played freely together at Britannia Row and Astoria studios. This was the first time they had done so since the ‘Wish You Were Here’ sessions in the seventies. Those sessions resulted in The Division Bell, the band’s last studio album.
In 2013 David Gilmour and Nick Mason revisited the music from those sessions and decided that the tracks should be made available as part of the Pink Floyd repertoire. It would be the last time the three of them would be heard together. The band have spent the last year recording and upgrading the music, using the advantages of modern studio technology to create The Endless River.
