New Pink Floyd album to be a tribute to late keyboardist

It’s been way too long since rock royalty, Pink Floyd, has released a record, but the band is releasing Endless River as a tribute to their late keyboardist, Rick Wright.

The album is made up of original tracks that date back to 1993’s Division Bell. Nick Mason comments,

Endless River is set to release November 10.
