It appears that after twenty years of waiting, the demand to hear the new Pink Floyd album is pretty massive.
The Endless River has shot to the top of the list for most pre-ordered album of 2014, overtaking Coldplay’s Ghost Stories.
The new LP from David Gilmour, Rick Wright and Nick Mason is an 18-track, four-sided double-album, keeping the classic format and will be out in early November.
This is the band’s first album in twenty years, since 1994′s The Division Bell. It is based on recordings from the same 1994 session, and will feature contributions from deceased keyboard player Richard Wright, who passed away in 2008.
The LP will be released in a fortnight and we are all hoping the Floyd can beat the current record holders One Direction, as the most pre-ordered album on Amazon.

1. Pink Floyd – The Endless River
