Foreigner's Lou Gramm and Mick Jones Reuniting For New Music

Former Foreigner frontman Lou Gramm has confirmed that he is reuniting with guitarist Mick Jones to work on new music, but it will be for their solo albums and not the arena rock band's next album. "Sometime in September, Mick and I are gonna get together and write some music," Gramm said to Rochester, N.Y.'s 95.1 the Brew, according to Ultimate Classic Rock. "I'm excited about it and very much looking forward to it. "I'm actually helping him with a couple of songs on a solo album that he's gonna be releasing, and he's gonna help me with a couple of songs on an album that I'll be releasing next year." Although Jones was recently quoted as saying that he and Gramm were considering working together on leftover music from the 1980s, Gramm says that the material is much newer. "It's actually the songs we were writing, working on together when we split up in 2003," Gramm says. "So those were songs that were done at the end of the '90s and early '00s, and they're really good."

Pink Floyd Releasing First New Album In 20 Years

(hennemusic) Pink Floyd are set to release their first new album in 20 years this fall. Guitarist David Gilmour's wife and Floyd lyricist Polly Samson broke the news on Twitter on Saturday. Samson posted the following tweet, "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 project marks the group's first release since 1994's "The Division Bell." Keyboardist Wright died from cancer in 2008 at the age of 65. The news follows reports this spring that Gilmour was in the studio working on a new solo album, which backup singer Durga McBroom-Hudson now reveals was for the new Floyd album. "The recording did start during The Division Bell sessions (and yes, it was the side project originally titled 'The Big Spliff' that [drummer] Nick Mason spoke about)," she wrote. "Which is why there are Richard Wright tracks on it. But David and Nick have gone in and done a lot more since then." "It was originally to be a completely instrumental recording, but I came in last December and sang on a few tracks," she added. "David then expanded on my backing vocals and has done a lead on at least one of them."
