Pink Floyd - The Endless River It has been known that David Gilmour has been in the studio for the past year or so working on a new album. However, news from Polly Samson, Gilmour's wife and one of the many people behind the post-Waters Pink Floyd and David Gilmour, randomly posted on Twitter that Gilmour is indeed working under the Pink Floyd name. Durga McBroom-Hudson, one of the band's original backup singers on the Momentary Lapse and the legendary Division Bell World Tours, the set piece behind Pulse, also posted a picture on Facebook of her in the studio with David Gilmour, seemingly in unison with Samson. Samson stated that the album is called The Endless River and is planned to be released in October of this year. Nick Mason is involved, prompting the release under the Pink Floyd name assumingly, and Andy Jackson, long time Pink Floyd engineer, is also involved. The album is based around sessions made around 1994, the same year of the release of the band's fourteenth and supposed final album, The Division Bell, with Richard Wright. Samson has described it as "Rick Wright's swansong", and Hudson had stated that the album was mainly created as a tribute to Rick, who died in 2008 due to an undisclosed form of cancer. His last work was on David Gilmour's 2006 album On an Island. The big thing to note, however, is that there has been no official word on whether or not Roger Waters is involved. Although it is good to note that he has been working on new material for a while now, towards a new album tentatively titled Homeland. It is very unlikely that Waters is involved in any way, shape or form.
