Pink Floyd preview Early Years box set with video for Childhood’s End

Pink Floyd are debuting a new video for the 1972 track “Childhood’s End” as a preview to their forthcoming box set, “The Early Years 1965-1972.”

With audio remixed from the original master tapes of the band’s seventh album, “Obscured By Clouds”, by Andy Jackson and Damon Iddins, the black and white clip mixes footage of anti-war protests with Pink Floyd in the studio.

Due November 11, “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.

The clip for “Childhood’s End” is the second preview of the box set following a new video released for the 1969 “Ummagumma” track “Grantchester Meadows.”
