Pink Floyd's new album The Endless River will be released on November 7. The band revealed the album artwork with giant posters and paintings on buildings in ten cities across the world yesterday.

The Endless River was produced by David Gilmour, Phil Manzanera of Roxy Music, Youth and Andy Jackson.

 “The Endless River has as its starting point in the music that came from the 1993 Division Bell sessions,“ says guitarist and vocalist David Gilmour. "We listened to over 20 hours of the three of us playing together and selected the music we wanted to work on for the new album.

“Over the last year we've added new parts, re-recorded others and generally harnessed studio technology to make a 21st century Pink Floyd album. With Rick (Wright) gone - and with him the chance of ever doing it again - it feels right that these revisited and reworked tracks should be made available as part of our repertoire.”

The Endless River is a tribute to Rick,“ says drummer Nick Mason. “I think this record is a good way of recognizing a lot of what he does and how his playing was at the heart of the Pink Floyd sound. Listening back to the sessions, it really brought home to me what a special player he was.”

The Endless River is mainly an instrumental album across four sides, with one song, Louder Than Words, featuring lyrics written by Polly Samson, the fiction-writing wife of David Gilmour.

The concept for the imagery of a man rowing on a ‘river’ of clouds was created by Ahmed Emad Eldin, an 18-year-old Egyptian digital artist. In London, The Endless River artwork is displayed on an eight metre high, illuminated cube installation on the South Bank.
