New Pink Floyd Album Due in October

Good news, classic rockers that love Pink Floyd.
We heard rumblings about this over the weekend, but the news, tweeted by David Gilmour's wife, seems to be true.
Pink Floyd will drop a new album in October, but it's not really new. It's sort of old, as it will be comprised of unreleased songs dating back to 1994.
When it's unreleased music from 20 years ago, it's totally fine, when you are Pink Floyd. Got that?
The material for the album, called Endless River, is from sessions recorded by Gilmour, Nick Mason, and the late Richard Wright during the making of their last album, The Division Bell, which landed in 1994.
So, to answer the question that all of us have, no, Roger Waters is not a part of this album, since he was not a part of that one, either.
Here is the official band statement.
"Pink Floyd can confirm that they are releasing a new album The Endless River in October 2014. It is an album of mainly ambient and instrumental music based on the 1993/4 Division Bell sessions which feature David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Richard Wright. The album is produced by David Gilmour with Phil Manzanera, Youth and recording engineer Andy Jackson. Work is still in progress, but more details to come at the end of the summer."
Are you ready to swim in Pink Floyd's Endless River?
