Pink Floyd's remaining members have confirmed 'The Endless River' will be their final album.
Pink Floyd have confirmed 'The Endless River' will be their final album.
The 'Wish You Were here' hitmakers' remaining members, Nick Mason and David Gilmour, admitted it is a ''shame'' their forthcoming record will be their last-ever release, but think it is the right note to end on.
David said: ''This is the last thing that'll be out from us.
''Well Rick [Wright]'s gone, dead. I'm pretty certain that there will not be a follow up to this. Polly, my wife, thought that would be a very good lyrical idea to go out on. It's a shame but this is the end.''
However, David admitted he may use some sessions he recorded with late keyboard player Richard - who died in 2008 - on his next solo album.
He added in an interview with BBC 6 Music: ''I have a little bit of Rick playing from my solo stuff that will hopefully appear on my next solo album, but not a Pink Floyd album.''
Former member Roger Waters recently issued a strongly-worded statement insisting he had no involvement in 'The Endless River', which will be released on November 10 and features music recorded by Richard.
The bassist, who quit the band in 1985, wrote on Facebook: ''Some people have been asking Laurie, my wife, about a new album I have coming out in November. Errhh? I don't have an album coming out, they are probably confused. David Gilmour and Nick Mason have an album coming out. It's called 'Endless River'. David and Nick constitute the group Pink Floyd.
''I on the other hand, am not part of Pink Floyd. I left Pink Floyd in 1985, that's 29 years ago. I had nothing to do with either of the Pink Floyd studio albums, 'Momentary Lapse Of Reason' and 'The Division Bell', nor the Pink Floyd tours of 1987 and 1994, and I have nothing to do with Endless River. Phew! This is not rocket science people, get a grip.''
