Pink Floyd's 'The Endless River' Will Feature Graham Nash and David Crosby
Graham Nash is providing new insights into Pink Floyd's forthcoming "The Endless River" project, confirming that he and long-time bandmate David Crosby added vocals to a David Gilmour-penned track dealing with loss.

"We went down to sing on this particular song that he wrote about friends that had died," Nash reveals, in a new talk with VH-1 Radio Network's Dave Basner (via Ultimate Classic Rock). "It's a beautiful song, too - beautiful."

Gilmour and Nick Mason have been at work since late last year completing ambient, primarily instrumental music begun during the late Rick Wright's final early-'90s sessions with Pink Floyd. Lyricist Polly Samson, who has collaborated with her husband Gilmour on a series of projects, described "The Endless River" as Wright's "swansong."

This isn't the first time, by the way, that Nash and Crosby have been involved with a Gilmour project. They also sang background on the title track for his 2006 solo album "On an Island." "I'm hoping that it's as good as 'On An Island,'" Nash tells Basner, "because I thought that that song of Gilmour's was not only a brilliant song, but I thought we sang pretty good on it."

Rumors that Graham and Nash were working with Gilmour first circulated last November, but it was assumed back then that the sessions would be part of a planned "On an Island" follow up. "The Endless River" is due in October.
