Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour and drummer Nick Mason discuss the band’s newly-released final album, “The Endless River”, on the latest edition of North American rock radio series In The Studio.
The project features material recorded by Gilmour, Mason and keyboardist Rick Wright during sessions for 1994’s “The Division Bell”, and serves as the band’s tribute to Wright, who died from cancer in 2008 at the age of 65.
“I think on this record, there’s an element of homage and a recognition of Rick,” explains Mason. “It’s perhaps making up for lack of recognition prior to this. He’s always perhaps been the unsung hero.”
“We could not have made this record 20 years ago. It would have been impossible,” adds Gilmour. “I’m very happy to be releasing this material now. It would have seemed very incomplete to me if we didn’t put something out.”
