Watch Pink Floyd’s New Video for ‘Louder than Words’
Pink Floyd have released a striking video for 'Louder Than Words,' just as the song begins arriving worldwide on 'The Endless River' today. The track is the only one with a vocal on the band's new album, which will most likely be the final Pink Floyd studio project.
Director Po Powell begins with the cover image of 'The Endless River,' created by a previously unknown 18-year-old Egyptian graphic designer, coming to life. Cutaways to David Gilmour's vocal sessions are then interspersed with archival shots of Pink Floyd's remaining trio of members working in the studio during the recording of 1994's 'The Division Bell,' leftovers from which provide the core and inspiration for 'The Endless River.'
Particularly touching is a shot of the late Richard Wright waving. The keyboardist's 2008 death after a bout with cancer appeared to draw Pink Floyd to a definitive conclusion -- before Gilmour and Nick Mason decided to reconvene last year and finish some of the Wright's final recordings with the group.
The balance of this new clip focuses on some resonant imagery that Powell captured between Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan, in a dried-up portion of the Aral Sea. You can watch the new 'Louder Than Words' video above. 'The Endless River' is out today.
