British rock band Pink Floyd is releasing a brand new album this October, 20 years after their last CD, The Division Bell, came out, David Gilmour‘s wife announced via Twitter.
Polly Samson, who is married to the group’s guitarist and vocalist, casually let slip the album, titled The Endless River, would be available later this year:
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 record will feature music from the band’s keyboardist and co-founder, Rick Wright, who passed away from cancer in 2008.
