Published Oct 09, 2014It's a bittersweet day for Pink Floyd fans. On the one hand, a single from their new album The Endless River has emerged. On the other hand, guitarist David Gilmour has revealed that this is the end of the road for the long-running band.
Speaking with BBC Radio 6 Music, Gilmour said, "This is the last thing that will be out from us... I'm pretty certain that there will not be any sort of follow-up to this."
He added, "It's a shame, but this is the end."
Gilmour noted that that he had a few more recordings featuring late keyboardist Rick Wright — who is featured prominently on The Endless River — and that these would hopefully appear on his next solo album.
Speaking with Rolling Stone, Gilmour additionally commented, "I think we have successfully commandeered the best of what there is. I suspect this is it."

The Endless River is due out on November 11 through Columbia Records. It was recorded in 1993 and 1994 by Gilmour, Wright and drummer Nick Mason. Wright later passed away in 2008.
