Rock band Pink Floyd will release a new studio album this year, according to guitarist-singer David Gilmour's wife Polly Samson. This will be the first album to be released in 20 years by the prog-rock band.

Samson broke the news on Twitter that the new LP will be titled The Endless River and it will feature the final work of multi-instrumentalist Richard Wright, reported Digital Spy.



"By the way Pink Floyd album out in October is called The Endless River. Based on 1994 sessions is Rick Wright's swansong and very beautiful," Samson tweeted.



Wright passed away in September 2008 at his home following a lengthy battle with cancer.



She also described the new release as the "swansong" of Rick Wright. It is unclear whether the new album will be entirely based on old 1994 material or whether it will feature more recently recorded contributions.

Even Pink Floyd backing vocalist Durga McBroom confirmed about the album The Endless River's impending release by sharing a photograph from a recording session on the micro-blogging site.
