Pink Floyd - Pink Floyd Pig To Fly Again

The Pink Floyd Pig will float above London's Battersea Power Station on Monday (26.09.11) to celebrate the launch of 'Why Pink Floyd.?'.

EMI Music have confirmed they will mark the release the remasters and collectors campaign by recreating the group's legendary 'Animals' sleeve by flying the pig over the iconic landmark - 35 years after it first happened.

The event will mark the first release date of the extensive 'Why Pink Floyd.?' campaign featuring brand new remasters, collector's editions and previously unreleased music.

Differing from the original 1976 floatation, the 2011 event will see the Pig fly at the north end of Battersea Power Station next to the river.

Unfortunately, the remaining members of Pink Floyd - drummer Nick Mason, bassist Roger Waters and guitarist David Gilmour - will not be able to attend the event.

On 26 September, EMI Music release all 14 Pink Floyd studio albums remastered as brand new Discovery Editions on CD and available digitally. All 14 studio albums will also be available as one Discovery Box Set.

The same day will see the release of Immersion and Experience Editions of 'The Dark Side of The Moon', extended to feature unreleased music from the Pink Floyd archives.

'Wish You Were Here' Experience and Immersion editions and 'A Foot In The Door - The Best of Pink Floyd' follow on November 7.

'The Wall' Immersion and Experience editions will be released on 27 February 2012.
