Pink Floyd Album Update: 'It's Not What Fans Will Necessarily Expect'
With the new Pink Floyd album looming over the horizon, an insider shared a few tidbits regarding the overall vibe, noting that the record won't be bringing any hit singles, and will also mark the end of the band.

As reported, "The Endless River" is expected to drop later this year, featuring unreleased material from 1994's "The Division Bell" sessions.

According to the Sun source, "It's not what fans will necessarily expect. The other songs, which David [Gilmour] has worked on with Nick Mason, are lengthy instrumentals rather than straight-up rock.

"It's beautiful but not exactly 'Another Brick in the Wall' or 'Wish You Were Here.' It's very spacey. It's got lots of keyboards from Rick [Wright] so you can see why the band are calling it his swansong. The track that Gilmour recorded vocals on will be the band's last-ever real song. It's a proper epic and a fitting farewell."

Seeing that the record was already described as predominantly ambient music, the new info should hardly strike you as surprising. However, the end-of-the-band claims do come as somewhat of a fresh info.

"It would probably be the highest-grossing tour in history if they reunited with Roger Waters. But Gilmour just won't have it. This album really is the end of Pink Floyd - for ever," the insider concluded (via Gigwise).
