Hear ‘Louder Than Words,’ Pink Floyd’s New Song on What’s Likely Their Last Album

louder than words

(If you have any prob­lems play­ing this clip, please refresh the page.)

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.”

The End­less Riv­er can be pre-ordered on Ama­zon or iTunes.
