Fans of the psychedelic rock band Pink Floyd are in for a promising fall. Apparently the iconic rockers have a new album on the way title The Endless River. Most interesting though, is how the news was announced.

David Gilmour's wife Polly Samson leaked the news via Twitter. She stated: "Btw Pink Floyd album out in October is called "The Endless River". Based on 1994 sessions is Rick Wright's swansong and very beautiful." Presumably, by "based" she meant that recordings from the late keyboardist Rick Wright (who died of cancer in 2008 at age 65) were beefed up with overdubs by Gilmour and Nick Mason. Samson co-wrote many of the lyrics featured on the band's 1994 album The Division Bell, so it's very possible she contributed to the soon-to-be released album.

Man Pretending To Be David Gilmour Racks Up $100,000 Medical Bill


David Gilmour

David Gilmour was in a Minnesota hospital recovering from on ongoing medical condition last month, the only ting is it wasn't actual the Pink Floyd frontman in hospital at all, it was a man pretending to be him in order to get out of paying his medical bills. Phillip Michael Schaeffer racked up a $100,000 bill during his stay in the St Cloud Hospital before police caught on to his scam.

Schaeffer turned up at the Minnesota hospital on April 20, claiming he was Floyd's guitarist and singer and that he didn't have medical insurance. He claimed he was on tour with Pink Floyd in Canada at the time and even signed an autograph for an unsuspecting fan while in his hospital bed. Suspicions were later raised by hospital staff, and Schaeffer was arrested when he returned to St Cloud for further treatment.

David Bowie's Where Are We Now: Is The Old Master Bowing Out?

David Bowie, Soho, New YorkA Rare Shot Of David Bowie Wandering Alone In New York

That clattering sound you thought you heard this week? Yeah, that was a thousand music journalists collectively dropping their pens when David Bowie suddenly released a new single - Where Are We Now? - on his 66th birthday. The British icon, now settled in Manhattan, also announced his first album in 10 years - The Next Day - set for release on March. Bowie, a forward thinking songwriter, addresses mortality and the past on his latest single, fuelling speculation as to whether the singer's latest record could well be his last.

There were murmuring of Bowie's return to the fray in 2012, though most expected him to appear at the London Olympics opening ceremony, sing Heroes and hop back on a plane to the East Coast of America. It never happened, and fans of the superstar were left sighing as Danny Boyle instead screened filmed footage of Bowie during his whistle-stop tour of Britain's pop history. Reviews of Where Are We Now? have been wholly positive, with our own Simon Jay Catling musing "this is a track that maintains the hallmarks of its creator's canon - lyrical signposts, themes that are never fully decoded, questions that open up more questions." Luke Turner of The Quietus said, "The song itself, well, it's proper Bowie, but with a really gorgeous swell, and at times heart-rending reflective tone to it. Brilliant stuff. My word." The Daily Telegraph - who also offered a positive review - quoted a spokesman as saying the track came "from out of nowhere," adding, "Throwing shadows and avoiding the industry treadmill is very David Bowie despite his extraordinary track record that includes album sales in excess of 130 million not to mention his massive contributions in the area of art, fashion, style, sexual exploration and social commentary."
