Pink Floyd Include 1968 Rick Wright Recording On New Album

(Prog) David Gilmour is delighted that Pink Floyd managed to include a 1968 recording of late keyboardist Rick Wright in upcoming album The Endless River.

Released on November 10, it's likely to be their final record, and it's designed as a tribute to Wright. The 46-year-old tape was made as the band prepared for an appearance at London's Royal Albert Hall. Gilmour says on the full-length promotional video below: "On the afternoon before we did it, during the set-up, Rick asked could he have a go on this great big pipe organ that was built in.

"So we set him up, set up a couple of mics up and recorded him playing, just jamming away on his own. We've got a piece of that tape from 1968 on the third side of the record."
