Now in its 17th big year, Pink Floyd A Fleeting Glimpse continues to attract new audiences. The site is widely acknowledged as a great source for Floyd news and has picked up a massive cult following over the years. (We passed the 50 Million visitor mark way back in Nov 2012!) A Fleeting Glimpse (Or AFG as its become known) is used by a cross section of the Floyd/Waters online community, including new fans & crusty old fossils, who spend all their life researching Floyd. I fit into the latter category by the way, having been a Floyd fan since 1966. My name is Col Turner, and I run this site on behalf of fans all over the planet. Without your contributions the site could not exist. If you have anything Floyd related that you think may be of interest, drop us a line (col@pinkfloydz.com)  Don't forget, in the best Pink Floyd tradition, there are several hidden links on this site, can you find them?

New Album From Pink Floyd Hot on the heels of the confirmed new David Gilmour album in 2015 comes the news that a new Pink Floyd album is on it's way in October this year! We have known about this album for some time but were sworn to secrecy, now we can reveal the details. The album, named 'The Endless River' is based on the 1994 sessions of The Division Bell. Nick Mason referenced the source material (in his book ‘Inside Out,’) saying “we eventually ended up with enough left-over material that we considered releasing it as a second album,” and naming it 'The Big Spliff." But the new album is more than just a series of outtakes! David Gilmour, Nick Mason and the late Rick Wright originally performed a series of ambient instrumentals which have since been worked on by both David Gilmour & Nick Mason. Last December David brought in backing singers Sarah Brown, Durga McBroom-Hudson and Louise Clare Marshall to sing the backing vocals for a song in which David Gilmour sings lead vocals. An interesting aside is that Polly Samson is now credited as being a Lyricist on the new album. We can also confirm that THERE WILL BE NO TOUR. And for those hoping for input from Roger Waters the answer is a resounding NO! (5 July 2014) 

The OFFICIAL statement reads: Pink Floyd can confirm that they are releasing a new album, The Endless River, in October 2014. It is an album of mainly ambient and instrumental music based on the 1993/4 Division Bell sessions. The album is produced by David Gilmour with Phil Manzanera, Youth and recording engineer Andy Jackson. Work is still in progress, but more details to come at the end of the summer.

Dazed and confused.An article recently appeared on the Ultimate Classic Rock site that claimed Graham Nash and David Crosby would be appearing on The Endless River. We have had it confirmed that this is in fact incorrect, but they will be appearing on David's new album due out next year.

 
David Gilmour Album - Major Announcement We have had it OFFICIALLY confirmed that David Gilmour's new album is planned to be released in 2015. Although a lot of work has already been completed (and is still underway) the album is nowhere ready to be recorded as yet. It's also been confirmed that David has not yet decided to tour the new album next year, although we do have our fingers & toes crossed. (Filed 17 June) UPDATE Another reliable source has suggested May 2015 although that is NOT official. Further Update Despite some doubters out there we can confirm that the news of David's album sometime in 2015 is OFFICIAL and when we say OFFICIAL, we mean OFFICIAL!!!!!
 
Division Bell Heads On The Move If you were planning on visiting the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland to admire the Division Bell heads then you will be disappointed. They are on their way to Milan Italy where they will feature in the Pink Floyd Ehibition starting later this year.
 
David Gilmour News! We are expecting a major announcement about David's new album in the near future (Although there is a lot of unfounded speculation about at the moment, so don't believe all you read!) BUT we can absolutely confirm that David is currently working in his recording studio on his houseboat The Astoria. Floyd fans will recall that parts of each of the last two Pink Floyd studio albums, A Momentary Lapse of Reason and The Division Bell, were recorded on the boat, as were parts of David's most recent solo album, On an Island. It was also used for mixing the Pink Floyd live albums Delicate Sound of Thunder and Pulse as well as the Pulse film, Gilmour's Remember That Night DVD and his 2008 live album, Live in Gdańsk. Stick with us and we will steer you right!
