Out on June 30th is the 20th anniversary box set of Pink Floyd’s “The Division Bell” album. Set for release on 30 June 2014, “TheDivision Bell” was the last studio album to be released by the band consisting of David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Richard Wright. This 20th anniversary box set features six discs, including 3 replica coloured or clear vinyl discs, 5 collectors’ prints, a Blu-ray disc and for the first time Andy Jackson’s 5.1 audio mix of “The Division Bell“.
“The Division Bell” has since its release in 1994 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.”
