First off, it's due Nov. 10, Rolling Stone reports. And check out that zen album cover!
It's a four-sided mostly instrumental album, with lyrics by David Gilmour’s wife, Polly Samson, on the song “Louder Than Words.” The music was largely culled from more than 20 hours of sessions recorded during the band's last album, 1994's The Division Bell, which was then reworked for this new album.
According to drummer Nick Mason, it's a tribute to keyboardist Rick Wright, who died in 2008. These sessions were the last recorded with Wright.
"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," he said. "Listening back to the sessions, it really brought home to me what a special player he was."
