Pink Floyd presented the newest music video for "Marooned" off 1994's "The Division Bell," the Russian sourceĀ reports.

The video became a part of this year's "The Division Bell" reissue. It was shot in notorious Ukrainian city of Pripyat, near Chernobyl Power Station. The music video shows the landscapes of abandoned city with the inclusions of archive footage made by Soviet cameramen before Chernobyl disaster. The man, hiding in the abandoned buildings, appears all the video long. The first part of the music video shows the footage made by International Space Station from the outer space. The video was directed by Aubrey Powell. Watch it below.

"The Division Bell" was the last studio album by Pink Floyd. It peaked the charts in both UK and US, and became Platinum three times. Most songs on the album were written by David Gilmour and Richard Wright, Nick Mason also contributed to the record.

The 47 thousand inhabitants of Pripyat left the city right after the Chernobyl disaster in 1986. Now the city is situated in Chernobyl's exclusion zone.
