Published Jul 10, 2014A new album has been a long time coming for Pink Floyd, but some exciting new information has come to light regarding The Endless River, the forthcoming record based on unreleased 1994 sessions with late keyboardist Richard White. It turns out that classic folk rockers Graham Nash and David Crosby will both apparently appear on the collection.
"We went down to sing on this particular song that he wrote about friends that had died," Nash told VH1 [via Ultimate Classic Rock] of the David Gilmour-penned tune. "It's a beautiful song, too — beautiful."
Nash discussed the tune in relation to "On an Island," a 2006 solo cut by Gilmour that also featured Nash and Crosby on backing vocals. "I'm hoping that it's as good as 'On an Island,'" Nash said, "because I thought that that song of Gilmour's was not only a brilliant song, but I thought we sang pretty good on it."
As previously reported, it was believed that Nash and Crosby were to appear on an upcoming Gilmour solo album, but Ultimate Classic Rock repots they are actually set for the Pink Floyd album.
The Endless River is expected out in October. It's said to consist primarily of "ambient and instrumental music," according to a prior announcement, but we're guessing that the tune featuring Nash and Crosby isn't instrumental.
