Pink Floyd Preview New Music

(Radio.com) You can now hear a snippet of Pink Floyd's upcoming The Endless River, their first album in 20 years. The 30-second video features a smooth guitar solo courtesy of David Gilmour, languishing above a proper bit of ambient psychedelia. Pink Floyd keyboardist Richard Wright died in 2008, leaving only David Gilmour and drummer Nick Mason. "The Endless River is a tribute to Rick Wright," explained Mason in an interview with Rolling Stone. "His playing was at the heart of the Pink Floyd sound." Former Roxy Music guitarist Phil Manzanera joined the band to record The Endless River, which also incorporates old sessions from Wright. In a statement, Gilmour explains that the album "has as its starting point the music that came from the 1993 Division Bell sessions. We listened to over 20 hours of the three of us playing together and selected the music we wanted to work on for the new album."

AC/DC have revealed that Columbia Records will be releasing their new studio album, entitled "Rock or Bust," on December 2nd and fans will be getting a little taste on TV. Turner Sports have announced that they will be previewing the song "Play Ball" on TBS during the Major League Baseball Postseason, beginning on September 27th, when they will be exclusively covering the American League Postseason. The ad will also air on other Turner stations. The album marks the first time in 41 years that the band has recorded without cofounder Malcolm Young, who had to take a break from the band due to illness. In his place, the band recruited Malcolm and Angus Young's nephew Stevie Young to record rhythm guitar on the new album and he will also be performing on the upcoming tour in support of the release. AC/DC recorded the album this past spring in Vancouver, BC with producer Brendan O'Brien and mixer Mike Fraser.

Pink Floyd Reveal New Album Details

(hennemusic) Pink Floyd will release their first new album in 20 years, "The Endless River", on November 10 (Nov 11 in North America). The album is a tribute to keyboardist Wright, who died from cancer in 2008 at the age of 65. The project features material recorded by Floyd members David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Rick Wright during the sessions for the band's 2004 release, "The Division Bell." The album is a tribute to keyboardist Wright, who died from cancer in 2008 at the age of 65. Produced by Gilmour, Phil Manzanera, Youth and Andy Jackson, its being billed as a four-sided instrumental album with one song, "Louder Than Words", to include new lyrics by Gilmour's wife, Polly Samson. "'The Endless River' has as its starting point the music that came from the 1993 Division Bell sessions," explains Gilmour. "We listened to over 20 hours of the three of us playing together and selected the music we wanted to work on for the new album. Over the last year we've added new parts, re-recorded others and generally harnessed studio technology to make a 21st century Pink Floyd album. With Rick gone, and with him the chance of ever doing it again, it feels right that these revisited and reworked tracks should be made available as part of our repertoire." "'The Endless River' is a tribute to Rick," adds Mason. "I think this record is a good way of recognizing a lot of what he does and how his playing was at the heart of the Pink Floyd sound. Listening back to the sessions, it really brought home to me what a special player he was."
