Black Sabbath Plan Final Album and Farewell Tour

(Classic Rock) Black Sabbath are to record a final album together and will launch their final tour, Ozzy Osbourne has exclusively revealed to Metal Hammer. The heavy metal legends will team up with producer Rick Rubin once again to record the follow-up to 2013's hugely successful 13 album. Speaking to Classic Rock at the end of 2013, Ozzy, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler were hesitant about the possibility of making one final Sabbath album - "I don't know if it would be the right thing to do," Iommi admitted. "But who knows. The history of this band has taught me to never say never" - but frontman Ozzy now says that the band will begin work on the album next year. "The whole Sabbath experience this time around was great," says Ozzy. "We all made friends, we didn't f*** around, we all knew that we had a job to do, and we did it. It was a lot of fun. So we're going to do one more album, and a final tour. Once the dust settled after the last tour we started discussing the idea, because we were getting asked about it all the time. I said to Sharon 'What's going on? Because if there's no more Sabbath I want to get on with my own thing again' and she came back and said 'Let me look into it.' Three weeks later I asked her about it again, and she said 'Oh, I still have to talk to so and so...' and I said 'Sharon, I ain't f*****g 21 any more, if we're going to do it I want to do it before I'm 70!' Time isn't on our side! So she made the call and came back and said 'Yeah, the record company wants another album.' I believe Rick Rubin is going to do it with us again."

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."
