Pink Floyd - The Endless River (2014) Pink Floyd - The Endless River (2014) deluxe edition

This afternoon, full details have been revealed of the much anticipated The Endless River, Pink Floyd's new album which now has a confirmed release date of November 10th, 2014 (plus some slight regional variations worldwide). The cover - shown here - already feels like a very suitable image, with typically Floydian restraint, and fitting the title.

The album will be available in three different configurations:

  1. Standard CD: presented in a hard cover bound book package with foil blocking on cloth spine, and a 16-page photo/credit booklet including previously unseen photographs from 1993 sessions
  2. Vinyl: Heavyweight 180 gram vinyl 2LP, mastered by Doug Sax at The Mastering Lab, Ojai, California, and presented in a gatefold sleeve, with full colour inner bags, download card, and a full size, 11" x 11" 16-page photo/credit booklet including previously unseen photographs from 1993 sessions
  3. Deluxe 2-disc box: includes a 24-page photo/credit booklet in hard cover, including previously unseen photographs from 1993 sessions; CD in full colour card wallet with full colour label; DVD (NTSC) or Blu-Ray in full colour card wallet with full colour label; 3 x Collectors' full colour postcards, one of which with 3D Lenticular design. The DVD contains the album in 5.1 Surround (Dolby Digital and DTS), plus stereo version in 48kHz /24 bit. The Blu-Ray contains the album in high resolution 5.1 Surround (DTS Master Audio and PCM, 96/24), plus PCM stereo 96/24, plus extra non-album audio-visual material (approx. 39 minutes): 6 video tracks and 3 audio tracks, unavailable elsewhere. It includes archive video material and still photographs shot at the original 1993 recording sessions

The Floyd's official website has been completely overhauled, and includes images of the various configurations (also shown here), along with some pictures of the original 1993 sessions, and a short TV commercial and a 30 second audio clip, both giving a flavour of what the album contains within. There's also the track listing, which we have below for you...

Nick Mason Q&A in London's Tower 47 - watch now Print E-mail
Written by Matt   
Wednesday, 17 September 2014

Back in July, the UK's Tower 47, in Camden's Chalk Farm Road in London, was host to a Q&A with Nick Mason (something that stayed well below our radar, so apologies that we weren't able to let you know about this before now).

In an interesting chat with the compère, and small audience, Nick talks about musicians getting fair recompense for their work, including a look at Spotify, which had Pink Floyd joining the music streaming service at the same time as Radiohead left it! He also talks about the rise of social media, his influences and other bands, the Live8 reunion and the likelihood of anything similar to happen again, his favourite Floyd songs (and why), his early years in music, and much more. Well worth hearing his Q&A, which you can do through the following video:

 
Roger Waters' Ca Ira - Nashville gets US premiere of opera Print E-mail

Monday, 15 September 2014

Roger Waters - Ca IraWith his work on The Wall now virtually complete (with presumably just the home release of the film, along with any other cinema screenings, to come) Roger Waters has turned his attention back on his opera Ca Ira, for its US premiere at Nashville's Schermerhorn Symphony Center. There will be two performances, with Roger narrating both, on January 29th and 30th, 2015.

The piece is scored for full orchestra, four solo voices, chorus and a children's chorus. The Tennessean newspaper state that the Nashville Symphony, Nashville Symphony Chorus and Blair Children’s Chorus will perform onstage with Waters. We understand that this will be a resumption of his narration role he performed on its last performance, in Gothenburg, Sweden, last year.

"We are thrilled and honored to have a legendary talent like Roger Waters at the Schermerhorn to debut this phenomenal production for an American audience," Alan Valentine, Nashville Symphony president and CEO, said in a news release. "We embrace any opportunity to expand our artistic mission with adventurous, ground-breaking projects, and 'Ca Ira' promises to be two nights of entertainment that Middle Tennesseans will never forget."

The ticket presales for Ca Ira begin at 10am CDT today for Nashville Symphony donors and subscribers. The public sale begins at 10am CDT on Friday at NashvilleSymphony.org, via phone at 615-687-6400 or at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center box office in Nashville, Tennessee.

 
Richard Wright Print E-mail

Richard WrightToday, September 15th, marks the very sad, sixth anniversary of the passing of Richard Wright, and along with many around the world, our thoughts are with his family and friends today, as they remember him.

A founding member of the early Pink Floyd, his distinctive keyboard work was a cornerstone of the band's music, yet his contribution was, of course, so much greater than that, as a vocalist and songwriter, responsible for many significant pieces of music throughout the band's career. Richard was such a key member of the band, and without him, the band would surely have trod a dramatically different path. The affection of the fans for Richard was clear to see on the 2006 David Gilmour tour, where Richard often received the loudest cheers each night.

As with previous years, a steady stream of emails are arriving here from fans who are thinking of Richard today, and who will - like us - be playing his music in tribute throughout today. You can share your thoughts on Richard, his contribution to Pink Floyd, and his contribution to your own life, over at our Facebook page.
