Pink Floyd confirm The Endless River will be their final album

Pink Floyd have confirmed that their forthcoming album will be their swansong.

Speaking to BBC 6 Music this morning, David Gilmour said The Endless River would be “the last thing that’ll be out from us.”

Asked by if there was more music in the vaults yet to be released, he added: “Well Rick [Wright, Pink Floyd keyboardist]’s gone, dead. I’m pretty certain that there will not be a follow up to this. Polly, my wife, thought that would be a very good lyrical idea to go out on. It’s a shame but this is the end.”

However, he said that he may use some sessions recorded with Wright, who died in 2008, for a new solo record. “I have a little bit of Rick playing from my solo stuff that will hopefully appear on my next solo album, but not a Pink Floyd album,” he said. Listen to the rest of the interview in the BBC iPlayer embed below.

The Endless River, the band’s first album in 20 years, features never-before-heard material recorded prior to Wright’s death and is based on 1994 sessions for The Division Bell, the band’s last studio album.

It also features Professor Stephen Hawking on a track called – wait for it – ‘Talkin’ Hawkin”. [via NME]
