Pink Floyd: "There will be no follow-up to The Endless River"
Pink Floyd have revealed that their new album The Endless River will be the last one they ever release.
The legendary rockers will release the album on November 10th. It is the band's first studio album in 20 years and 15th album of their career.
Speaking to BBC6Music, guitarist Dave Gilmour said that after the death of keyboardist Richard Wright in 2008 the band felt they could make no more albums after this, he said: "Well, Rick is gone. This is the last thing that'll be out from us. I'm pretty certain there will not be any follow-up to this."
Wright is listed as a co-writer for 12 tracks on the album and Gilmour also admitted that people underestimated the contribution he made to the band. He added: "He (Wright) has been underestimated by the public, by the media and by us at times I hate to say. I didn't necessarily always give him his proper due. People have very different attitudes to the way they work and we can become very judgemental and think someone is not quite pulling his weight enough, without realising that theirs is a different weight to pull."
Earlier in the week it was revealed that scientist Stephen Hawking will appear on a track on The Endless River.
This would mark the second time Hawking has appeared on a Pink Floyd album after he appeared on their 1994 album The Division Bell. On that occasion he appeared on a track called 'Keep Talking', given this is a similar title to 'Talkin' Hawkin'' it seems likely that this new track will be a sequel of sorts to that song.
The full tracklisting for The Endless River is as follows:
'Things Left Unsaid'
'It's What We Do'
'Ebb And Flow'
'The Lost Art Of Conversation'
'On Noodle Street'
'Eyes To Pearls'
'Louder Than Words'
