VIDEO: Pink Floyd preview Early Years box set

Pink Floyd are previewing their forthcoming box set, “The Early Years 1965-1972”, with a new unboxing video of the package.

Due November 11, the set gives fans the opportunity to hear the evolution of the band and witness their part in cultural revolutions from their earliest recordings and studio sessions to the years prior to the release of “The Dark Side Of The Moon”, one of the biggest-selling albums of all time.

“The Early Years 1965-1972” presents 7 individual book-style packages and feature 130 tracks, including TV recordings, BBC Sessions, outtakes and demos and more than 20 unreleased songs.

Also featured are 7 hours of previously unreleased live audio and more than 5 hours of rare concert footage.

In addition to the deluxe set, a 2-CD highlights album, “The Early Years – Cre/ation”, will also be issued on November 11.

Each individual book-style package will be released separately early in 2017, except “Bonus Continu/ation”, which is exclusive to the box set.

Pink Floyd released their final album, “The Endless River”, in 2014. The project featured material recorded by David Gilmour, Richard Wright and Nick Mason during sessions for 1994’s “The Division Bell.” The album also served as a tribute to Wright, who died from cancer in 2008 at the age of 65.
