The highly-anticipated new Pink Floyd album, The Endless River, has as its starting point the music that came from the 1993 Division Bell sessions. Created by David Gilmour, Rick Wright and Nick Mason, the trio listened to more than 20 hours of themselves playing together to select the music they wanted to work on for the new album.

"Over the last year we've added new parts, re-recorded others and generally harnessed studio technology to make a 21st century Pink Floyd album. With Rick gone (Wright died of cancer in 2008), and with him the chance of ever doing it again, it feels right that these revisited and reworked tracks should be made available as part of our repertoire," Gilmour says.

Nick Mason says The Endless River is a tribute to Wright. "I think this record is a good way of recognizing a lot of what he does and how his playing was at the heart of the Pink Floyd sound. Listening back to the sessions, it really brought home to me what a special player he was."

The Endless River is mainly an instrumental album with one song, "Louder Than Words," which includes new lyrics by Polly Samson.

The concept for the powerful imagery of a man rowing on a "river" of clouds was created by Ahmed Emad Eldin, an 18-year-old Egyptian digital artist. Ahmed's image was then re-created by Stylorouge, award-winning U.K. design agency.

Pink Floyd's album artwork, mostly created by Storm Thorgerson of Hipgnosis, is as legendary as the band's music. With Storm's passing in 2013, the task of finding an image that carried on Storm's legacy passed to Aubrey "Po" Powell, Storm's original partner in Hipgnosis.

Po says: "When we saw Ahmed's image it had an instant Floydian resonance. It's enigmatic and open to interpretation, and is the cover that works so well for The Endless River.
