After months of rumors, Pink Floyd finally announced the details of their new album titled ‘The Endless River’, which will hit shelves on November 10th. It’s the group’s first new release since 1994’s ‘The Division Bell’.

According to a press release, The Endless River is a “four-sided instrumental album,” though one track, “Louder Than Words,” has lyrics by David Gilmour’s wife Polly Samson. It was produced by Gilmour, Phil Manzanera, Youth and Andy Jackson and is already available for pre-order.

Gilmour said that the project began with Gilmour and Floyd drummer Nick Mason sorting through music they recorded with keyboardist late Rick Wright.

“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 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.”

Mason said that the album is a tribute to Rick Wright.

“The Endless River is a tribute to Rick. 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.”
