Pink Floyd confirm The Endless River is band’s final album

Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour has revealed the band’s forthcoming release, “The Endless River”, will be their final album.

"This is the last thing that'll be out from us," Gilmour tells the BBC.

Due November 10 (Nov 11 in North America), the project is a tribute to keyboardist Rick Wright, who died from cancer in 2008 at the age of 65.

Gilmour said Wright was "underestimated by the public, by the media and by us at times, I hate to say. I didn't necessarily always give him his proper due. People have very different attitudes to the way they work and we can become very judgemental and think someone is not quite pulling his weight enough, without realizing that their's is a different weight to pull."

"It is a great opportunity to recognize, remember and maybe give some credit rather late on," added drummer Nick Mason.

“The Endless River” is the band’s first studio release in 20 years; it is being billed as a four-sided instrumental album with one song, “Louder Than Words”, to include new lyrics by Gilmour’s wife, Polly Samson.
