On November 10, Pink Floyd will unveil The Endless River. And, above, you can hear ‘Louder Than Words,’ the first track released from the album. It’s the only vocal track on an otherwise instrumental LP.
The Endless River is the band’s first album since 1994’s The Division Bell. And it’s apparently going to be their last. In the second clip recorded by the BBC, David Gilmour talks about the concept behind The Endless River, how they wrote “Louder Than Words,” and how, especially with the death of keyboardist Richard Wright, it’s going to be their last creative effort. “I think we have successfully commandeered the best of what there is. I suspect this is it.”
