Pink Floyd To Release The Division Bell 20th Anniversary Box Set

Wednesday, May 21st 2014 12:15

The set will be released on 30 June.

Pink Floyd have announced they're to release a 20th anniversary box set of their final album, ‘The Division Bell.

The set features six discs, five collectors’ prints, a Blu-ray disc including the new 2014 film of 'Marooned' and a previously unreleased 5.1 surround sound mix of the album.

Also included will be a new 2-LP vinyl edition of the album, remastered by Doug Sax from the original analogue tapes, including all of the full length tracks which were originally edited to fit on a single LP.

‘The Division Bell’ debuted at No 1 in the UK and in the USA, staying at the top of the US charts for 4 weeks; it also went to No 1 in eight other countries and, to date, has reached total album sales of over 12 million. The album was recorded by the band at Astoria and Britannia Row Studios with the majority of the lyrics being written by Polly Samson and David Gilmour.
 
David Gilmour said at the time: “The three of us went into Britannia Row studios, and improvised for 2 weeks.  Playing together and starting from scratch was interesting and exciting, it kick started the album and the process was very good, it was collaborative and felt more cohesive.”

The box set is due for a June 30 release.
