New album coming in October?
Posted by madhack on Jul 5, 2014
A Twitter account claiming to belong to Polly Samson, David Gilmour's long-time wife, has just noted the October release a new Pink Floyd album featuring 1994 sessions with Rick Wright:
Btw Pink Floyd album out in October is called "The Endless River". Based on 1994 sessions is Rick Wright's swansong and very beautiful.— Polly Samson (@PollySamson) July 5, 2014
It is worth noting that this isn't a verified Twitter account, but that is fairly common in the case of people who aren't well-connected to other "celebrities". Based on the history of the account, the idea that it truly belongs to Ms. Samson is very plausible—backed up by the post apparently being re-Tweeted by long-time Floyd backup singer Durga McBroom.
It's also worth acknowledging that there are rumors of involvement from Roger Waters and of a potential future tour, but we have found no sources to confirm. We'll be treating them as rumors but will obviously post more as it emerges.
