More is the third studio album and first soundtrack album by English rock band Pink Floyd. It was released on 13 June 1969 in the United Kingdom by EMI Columbia and on 9 August 1969 in the United States by Tower Records.

The soundtrack is for the film of the same name, which was primarily filmed on location on Ibiza and was the directorial debut of Barbet Schroeder. It was the band’s first album without former leader Syd Barrett.

The album was a top ten hit in the UK, but received mixed reviews. Several songs became live favorites over the following years. Like other Pink Floyd albums, it has been reissued on CD with additional material and outtakes.

Pink Floyd recorded several pieces of film music before this album. In December 1967, they were featured on the BBC’s Tomorrow’s World, playing along to a light show, and the following year recorded some instrumental music for the film The Committee.[6]

The film More featured a young hitchhiker in Ibiza who had succumbed to heroin abuse with party scenes and drug taking. Director Barbet Schroeder was a fan of the group, and brought a rough cut of the film to London for them to work with. Instead of typical background music, Schroeder wanted the songs to feature in the film, such as a record playing at a party.

The group also speculated they could branch out into a career as film composers if their recording and touring career did not work out. Drummer Nick Mason later said the film was “ideally suited to some of the rumblings, squeaks and sound textures we produced on a regular basis”.
