Pink Floyd’s The Endless River debuts on US charts

Pink Floyd’s first album in almost 20 years, “The Endless River”, has debuted on the US Billboard 200 at No. 3.

Billboard reports the project sold 170,000 copies to place third on the new chart behind the Foo Fighters’ “Sonic Highways” and Taylor Swift’s “1989.”

“The Endless River” also debuts at No. 2 on the US Top Rock Albums chart.

The US news follows the band’s first UK No.1 album in 19 years, with opening week sales of 139,000 copies.

“The Endless River” features material recorded by guitarist David Gilmour, drummer Nick 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.
