Pink Floyd 4 Part Podcast Begins Monday With Box Set Out Dec 13th
David Gilmour sits down to discuss and promote "The Later Years" box-set coming out in December during a four-part podcast series starting this Monday, November 25, with a new episode every following Monday coinciding with the release of the massive post-Roger Waters era material on December 13th.
“The Lost Art of Conversation” will premiere on all podcast platforms.
Each episode will focus on a particular theme:
Episode One: The Studio
The band’s return to jamming in the recording studio and embracing new technology when faced with new advances in synthesizers and other instruments.
Episode Two: Artwork
Gilmour explains his ideas for the band’s artwork including how his sketch of a single, empty bed was transformed by Storm Thorgerson into the image of 500 beds for the cover of 1987’s “A Momentary Lapse of Reason.”
Episode Three: Live performances
How the band prepared for the prospect of an upcoming tour, and the enormous pressure facing them while rehearsing in a massive aircraft hangar in Toronto.
Episode Four: Unreleased new material from the box-set
Gilmour talks about the loads of new and rare material included in “The Later Years.” His memories are jogged by watching footage of the band flying over Miami Beach, watching swimmers surrounded by sharks.
The band is billing this podcast as Gilmour’s only interview surrounding the launch of the 16-disc box that focuses on post-Roger Waters era Floyd.
