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."

Queen Confirm New Album Featuring Unreleased Freddie Tracks

(hennemusic) Three previously unreleased Queen tracks featuring late singer Freddie Mercury are featured on the new compilation, "Queen Forever", due November 10 (Nov. 11 in North America). The package include a long anticipated track from Queen and Michael Jackson, "There Must Be More To Life Than This", a previously unfinished Mercury-Queen track "Let Me In Your Heart Again" originating from the band's "The Works" album recording sessions, and a new stripped-down ballad version of Mercury's first solo hit, his Giorgio Moroder collaboration, "Love Kills." The rest of the package brings together Queen hits, classic tracks, and new takes on well-known songs, matched with band recordings Brian May describes as "things that we have collected together that are representative of our growth rather than the big hits" in a collection immaculately assembled by May and Roger Taylor themselves. The tracks are all linked to represent a definitive collection of Queen's timeless love songs. "Queen Forever" will be available as a 20-track single CD and as an extended 36-track, two-CD set.

Foreigner's Jones and Gramm Reuniting For New Music

(Classic Rock) Foreigner guitarist Mick Jones says it will be "fun" hooking up with the band's original frontman Lou Gramm later this year. They are teaming up for the first time in over a decade to write songs for each of their solo albums, which may surface in 2015. Jones tells Ultimate Classic Rock: "We want to delve back into some of the ideas we both knew we had. Then there's this little trove of goodies that Lou's got that I haven't heard. So we'll start basically just messing around with those ideas and maybe that will inspire us into something new." He adds: "I think we're both going into it quite openly - just let it come naturally. We have no specific plans to do anything more at the moment. But it will be fun and a great way of us reestablishing more contact with each other. And I'm very happy about that."
