This setlist carefully balances the then-new material from “A Momentary Lapse Of Reason” and Pink Floyd classics, including songs from “The Dark Side Of The Moon” (Time, On The Run, The Great Gig In The Sky and Us And Them), the anthemic title track of “Wish You Were Here”, “The Wall’s” Comfortably Numb and a cathartic Run Like Hell. Pink Floyds “Delicate Sound of Thunder” still stands as a record of the creative power of David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Richard Wright at their incendiary best.

3-LP 180-gram vinyl set includes 9 songs not included on the 1988 release of the album. Pink Floyd “Delicate Sound Of Thunder”: Restored, Re-Edited, Remixed.

Pink Floyd‘s Delicate Sound of Thunder live album and concert film were restored, remixed and re-edited for last year’s mammothLater Years box set, but this November will be made available separately, across all major physical formats. 
The sound on this 1988 release has been completely remixed from the original multi-track tapes by longtime Pink Floyd engineer Andy Jackson with Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour, assisted by Damon Iddins. The new 2CD and 3LP vinyl sets feature this remixed audio and offer more tracks than before: the vinyl triple-disc package offers nine more tracks than the original, while the new double-CD package features eight songs not on the 1988 2CD set. The concert film was restored and re-edited from the original 35mm film and enhanced with 5.1 surround sound and this is available as standalone Blu-ray and DVD packages. 

Pink Floyd’s supporting musicians for this tour were as follows: Jon Carin (Keyboards, Vocals), Tim Renwick (Guitars, Vocals), Guy Pratt (Bass, Vocals), Gary Wallis (Percussion), Scott Page (Saxophones, Guitar), Margret Taylor (Backing Vocals), Rachel Fury (Backing Vocals) and Durga McBroom (Backing Vocals).

These new editions of Delicate Sound of Thunder will be released on 20th November 2020.

Pink Floyd “BBC 1967”. Performing on four different dates in 1967, the year they released their first album, “Piper At The Gates Of Dawn” (1967), this is Pink Floyd at its best, psychedelic and raw. Their performance in May of that year, for the program “The Look Of The Week”, was probably the group’s first live video recording and includes incredible versions of “Pow R. Toc H.” and “Astronomy Domine”. Two more recordings for the Top Gear show, which featured London’s underground hipster scene, and one for “Tomorrow’s World” complete this incredible collection from the initial Floyd, including great versions of “Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun”, ” Flaming” and “Vegetable Man “. Essential live recordings of Pink Floyd during its greatest era! LP with limited edition splashes. Beautiful record to have, the quality of the pressing is surprisingly good, 45 rpm.

david gilmour, yes i have ghosts, david gilmour yes i have ghosts, david gilmour single, david gilmour pink floyd, romany gilmour

David Gilmour has officially released a new song, “Yes, I Have Ghosts”, which marks the Pink Floyd guitarist’s first solo release since his 2015 album, Rattle that Lock, which rose to No1 on the U.K. Album Albums Chart.

While it’s billed as a “solo” song, “Yes, I Have Ghosts” is a Gilmour family affair, with lyrics by David’s wife, Polly Samson, and harp/vocal accompaniment by his daughter, 18-year-old Romany Gilmour. In celebration of the release of the dreamy, acoustic track, the Gilmour family hosted a special edition of their running Von Trapped quarantine live stream during which they showed the music video on a projector screen behind them.

YES, I HAVE GHOSTS is the first new song from David Gilmour in 5 years and features the voice and harp playing of his daughter Romany.

Roger Waters has released a performance video of “Two Suns in the Sunset” alongside his backing band. The song comes from the final Pink Floyd album Waters appeared on, 1983’s The Final Cut.

The video follows “Mother” as the second installment in what will prove to be an album of previously-recorded material from Waters and his ensemble. The former Floyd bassist stated that he plans to record an album of all the songs him and his band performed as encores while on his 2017—2018 Us + Them Tour.

The performance opens with the typing of brief messages onto a plain black screen, while the sound of cars whiz by the listener. The messages pertain to the end of the world by way of nuclear apocalypse, with such inspiring maxims as “We’re at one hundred seconds to midnight/On the doomsday clock” and “This is the closest the Human Race/Has ever been to nuclear catastrophe.” Given his age, one would think Waters would remember the Cold War, yet his hatred for Donald Trump could be clouding his memory ever so slightly.

Then comes the actual song as Waters attempts to revive this long-overlooked tune that emerged from the final breath that was the classic (but not original) Pink Floyd line up. That is not to say that “Two Suns in the Sunset” is a bad song by any means, but if the band came out and Roger started playing that tired D-A-G chord movement, you might consider leaving early to beat traffic. The song’s message of nuclear annihilation, however, remains as relevant today as it was when it was written, but the threat has become so longstanding that it is almost ingrained into American culture by this point. As Waters’s bandmates turn off their cameras one-by-one at the end of the clip, we are left with just Roger who says to us, “how f*cking good is that?”.

I had an idea to make an album of all the songs we did as encores on the “US and Them” tour. We did “Mother” first. Had to do it remotely because of Covid 19. “Two Suns in The Sunset” is #2. Hope you like it. I love it. What a beautiful band they are. Love R.

12″ single with etching on B’ side. Pink Floyd drummer reinterpreting a couple of early Pink Floyd songs.

Released to coincide with new album released 17th April. From the dynamic drummer heard on every Pink Floyd album, Nick Mason’s Saucerful Of Secrets offers the opportunity to experience the group’s early body of work in concert, including songs from The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn and A Saucerful Of Secrets. Alongside guitarists Gary Kemp (of Spandau Ballet), keyboardists Dom Beken and Lee Harris (of Ian Dury and The Blockheads), and longtime Pink Floyd touring bassist Guy Pratt, Mason drew rapturous crowds throughout North America and Europe in 2018 and 2019 -including dates at The Roundhouse in London, the historic venue that counted Pink Floyd as its first performance in 1966.

Ahead of a dazzling audiovisual release of material from the Roundhouse sets last May, this collectible 12″ single features two performances from those sets (including Pink Floyd outtake “Vegetable Man,” played for the first time ever on this tour) backed by a custom etching.

When one mentions Pink Floyd, a reverence fills the air. This is particularly true when any of their original content is being prepared for a Deluxe release. And for Pink Floyd, much of their catalog has been explored to their cores and released in multiple deluxe packages. So, is there room for one more?

On November 29th, (and just in time for Christmas gift-giving), this massive 15-disc package called “The Later Years: 1987-2019″. Confirmed earlier this year by Aubrey Powell (co-owner of Hipgnosis, the oft-used album design company started with the late great Storm Thorgerson), this box set will definitely arrive for Pink Floyd fans and hard-core completists. The years indicate music created after the departure of Roger Waters and would likely include unused and previously unavailable studio and live materials. These treasures would work from A Momentary Lapse of Reason through 2014’sThe Endless River. A Delicate Sound of Thunder representing the tour for A Momentary Lapse of Reason, andPulse representing the tour for The Division Bell are both likely to be explored in this box set.

For now, the content is speculative. But there is a product shot that brings a lot of hope. Stay tuned for information from ALL fronts once the news is released for actual disc content. A Momentary Lapse of Reason is rumored to have a 5.1 Surround mix available for this box. As with The Early Years, a wealth of extras will accompany the pricey box.

In a side note, Powell also revealed that the 5.1 SACD for Animals would see release sometime early 2020.

Pink Floyd have unearthed the in-concert film that appeared on screens during the band’s performance of “Money” on their 1994 tour, one of the many audiovisual oddities featured in the upcoming box set The Later Years.

The quirky clip is like a Hipgnosis-designed album cover come to life, with a bizarre bartering system, a B-movie grade flying saucer and swimming pools full of money somehow weaving together to issue an allegorical warning about inflation and capitalism.

The “Money” film — one of the many made-for-concert visuals Pink Floyd rolled out during their 1994 trek in support of The Division Bell features within the 16-disc The Later Years, due out November 29th. The box set is packed with the then-trio’s final studio LPs and live albums, plus rarities, concert films, unreleased music videos, two 7″ singles, a remixed A Momentary Lapse of Reason and more.

Pink Floyd previously shared an “early version” of The Division Bell closer “High Hopes,” which resides among the 13 hours of unreleased material stored in The Later Years.

The Later Years box set

Later this year, Pink Floyd will release “The Later Years”. Due November 29th, the massive box set collects the iconic rockers’ post-Roger Waters work, including rare live recordings and previously unreleased tracks. As the title suggests, this version of High Hopes is an early version of the song and features an electric guitar solo and slightly different lyrics.

Today we get to hear one of those unreleased offerings, as Pink Floyd have shared an early demo version of “High Hopes” off 1994’sThe Division Bell. “High Hopes” originally closed out The Division Bell, and actually features the title lyric. This newly revealed demo version of the track has some distinct differences in the level mixing, with David Gilmour’s vocals riding high alongside the ringing piano. Most notably, drums appear to be almost entirely absent, interestingly giving it a heavier, more ominous feel.

Among the other highlights featured The Later Years is a new version of 1987’s A Momentary Lapse of Reason. It utilizes freshly restored keyboard tracks from Richard Wright and completely new drums from Nick Mason. The box is filled out with a number of live albums, concert films, and more previously unreleased rarities.

Included on ‘The Later Years’, a 16-disc box set (5xCDs, 6xBlu-Rays, 5xDVDs) covering the material created by David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Richard Wright from 1987 onwards, with unreleased audio and audiovisual material, including the 1989 Venice and 1990 Knebworth concerts, as well as updated, restored and remixed audio and video, 2 x 7” singles, 60-page hardback Photo Book, 40-page hardback Credits Book, Lyrics Book, 3 x reproduction tour programmes, card envelope containing collectible memorabilia, plus Blu-rays and DVDs in individual wallets. Release date is 29th November 2019, with a 12-track ‘Highlights’ package (2-LP or 1-CD) available on the same day.

Warner Music Group in association with Pink Floyd Records is releasing a 25th anniversary edition of ‘The Division Bell’, the band’s 1994 multi-million selling album that included the Grammy Award winning track “Marooned” (Best Rock Instrumental Performance) on June 7th. This Limited Edition 25th anniversary edition will be available on translucent blue vinyl (echoing the original limited blue vinyl release in 1994).

‘The Division Bell’ was the last studio album to be recorded by the band: David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Richard Wright. The album debuted at No 1 in the UK, the USA, Australia and New Zealand, staying at the top of the US charts for 4 weeks; it also went to No 1 in six other countries and, to date, has reached total album sales of over 12 million. The album was recorded by the band at Astoria and Britannia Row Studios with the majority of the lyrics being written by Polly Samson and David Gilmour. ‘The Division Bell’ contains Pink Floyd’s only Grammy-awarded track, the instrumental ‘Marooned’. A video for Marooned was made for the 20th Anniversary Immersion release of the album and has now had almost 25 million views

‘The Division Bell’ sleeve artwork was the first Pink Floyd image to be featured on a Royal Mail stamp, in an issue of ‘Classic Album Covers’. The iconic album artwork of the two huge metal heads in profile talking to each other (and in turn, creating a third forward-facing head) was provided by long-time Floyd collaborator Storm Thorgerson.

The album was remastered for the release in 2014 by James Guthrie, Joel Plante and Doug Sax at The Mastering Lab from the original analogue tapes. Bob Ezrin and David Gilmour produced the original album, with orchestral arrangements by the late Michael Kamen.
