Pink Floyd fans everywhere are all a-twitter (literally) about the news that the band will be releasing their first album in 20 years. The news came via Twitter when David Gilmour‘s wife, author Polly Samson, confirmed the news, the title “The Endless River,” and the fact that it’ll arrive in October. “Btw Pink Floyd album out in October is called ‘The Endless River,’” she wrote. “Based on 1994 sessions is Rick Wright’s swansong and very beautiful.”
For those who don’t know, Wright was the original keyboardist for Pink Floyd, who died of cancer in 2008 at the age of 65.
According to Straight.com, Pink Floyd’s management wasn’t thrilled with Samson’s news-breaking tweet. Nor were they impressed when vocalist Durga McBroom-Hudson (who performed with Floyd at their 1994 concert in Vancouver) posted a photo to her Facebook page, with the message: “YES. THERE IS A PINK FLOYD ALBUM COMING OUT. AND I’M ON IT. And there was much rejoicing.”
No word yet on whether Roger Waters is making a guest appearance on the new album. We’re guessing that means he’s not.
