Pink Floyd have released a 30-second teaser trailer for their upcoming album ‘The Endless River’. Click above to watch.
The clip was posted today via the band’s various social media outlets and features a short, guitar-heavy audio snippet. ‘The Endless River’ – which will be Pink Floyd’s first album in 20 years – is due for release on November 10.In addition to the record’s cover art and tracklisting, which were released earlier this week, the group published a statement via their website, revealing that the LP will include music recorded with multi-instrumentalist Richard Wright, who died in 2008 aged 65.”‘The Endless River’ is a tribute to Rick Wright, whose keyboards are at the heart of the Pink Floyd sound,” read the statement. “It is a mainly instrumental album with one song, ‘Louder Than Words’, (with new lyrics by Polly Samson), arranged across four sides and produced by David Gilmour, Phil Manzanera, Youth and Andy Jackson.”

The record will not feature original Pink Floyd bassist Roger Waters, who left the band in 1985. Speaking last year, drummer Nick Mason revealed that he would be interested in a full band reunion, but was not certain it will ever materialise.

“I would do it… I’m ready to go,” he said when asked about the prospects of a reunion. “I’m packed, I have my drum kit, a suitcase and a wash bag by my front door ready for it when I ever get the call. But I’m not holding my breath.”

Hear Julian Casablancas + the Voidz’ Wonderfully Bizarre New LP ‘Tyranny’

The last time Julian Casablancas released an album outside of the Strokes, 2009’s Phrazes for the Young, Rolling Stone described it as “his version of Thom Yorke’s The Eraser,” a record featuring “guitars submarined by wild-angled synths, off-kilter beats tripping up big ballads.” “A few songs have the old leather-jacket kick,” Jon Dolan wrote. “But things get weirder as he explores alienation from a Lower East Side he once ruled.”

Having moved upstate, the Strokes frontman is now backed by a band called the Voidz – Jeramy Gritter and Amir Yaghmai on guitar, Jeff Kite on keys, Jake Bercovici on bass and Alex Carapetis on drums – and together, they are ready to release an incredibly eclectic new album, simply titled Tyranny. The LP hits stores Tuesday (and can be pre-ordered at the Cult Records website), but you can listen to an exclusive advance stream of all 12 songs right here. It’s even got some of that old leather-jacket kick.

“Tyranny has come in many forms throughout history,” Casablancas said in a statement, explaining the title. “Now, the good of business is put above anything else, as corporations have become the new ruling body. Most decisions seem to be made like ones of a medieval king: Whatever makes profit while ignoring and repressing the truth about whatever suffering it may cause (like pop music, for that matter).”
