In October, the world can get some brand new Pink Floyd. The album, titled ‘The Endless River’, is technically a brand new album, but the songs are based on unused material from the 1994 album ‘The Division Bell’, so it does feature Richard Wright. It also is apparently mostly instrumental, which, certainly much of Pink Floyd comes from their beautiful instrumental landscapes, but both Roger Waters and David Gilmour have amazing voices that also contribute to much of the Pink Floyd sound.
Speculation among fans of Pink Floyd began after Warner Music posted this website with a countdown timer which ends at 10:00 AM on Tuesday, May 20, 2014. It would appear to be teasing a 20th anniversary re-release of The Division Bell, but, of course, wild speculation can easily be found regarding some sort of re-forming of the band.
In any case, the site is worth a visit for the Marooned video if you haven’t already seen it. The video features some beautiful ISS footage as well as what appears to be footage from around an abandoned amusement park in Prypiat, Ukraine.
Tonight, Paul McCartney will be the new lead singer for Nirvana, Eddie Vedder will be part of Pink Floyd
At tonight’s 12.12.12 Hurricane Sandy benefit concert in NYC, there will be lots of big names on hand to perform, including a couple combinations that could be very interesting to watch. Paul McCartney will be joining Krist Novaselic and Dave Grohl, essentially making McCartney the lead singer of a briefly re-formed Nirvana, and Pearl Jam singer Eddie Vedder will be teaming up with Roger Waters on some Dark Side of the Moon songs. Ow my head.
Sorry posting has been sort of light this evening. Was busy having my mind blown at Roger Waters’ The Wall
Really, really good fucking show if you’re a fan of Pink Floyd.
