KFIX Rock News: Pink Floyd To Release 20th Anniversary Edition Of “The Division Bell”

pinkfloyd-555x555Pink Floyd has been dropping hints, and now it’s official: the band will release a 20th anniversary edition of The Division Bell next month.

The 1994 album — the last official Pink Floyd studio release — will be reissued in a package that’s a Floyd collector’s dream.

The boxed set will feature a double vinyl album, with each of the two records on 180-gram vinyl that feature for the first time the full-length tracks, which had originally been edited to fit on ’90s-era vinyl.

The set also contains three additional vinyl discs: a red vinyl 7-inch of “Take It Back,” a clear 7-inch of “High Hopes,” and a blue 7-inch of “High Hopes,” which will be a one-sided disc with a reverse laser etched design.

Also included in the package will be a remastered Division Bell CD; a Blu-ray disc with an HD audio version of the album and a brand new “Marooned” music video; and the previously-unreleased 5:1 audio remix by legendary Pink Floyd recording engineer Andy Jackson.

You’ll also get assorted eye candy in the form of a 12×12-inch 24-page color booklet and four 12×12 color prints.

The price tag for the deluxe boxed set is $134.98; it’s available for pre-order now on Pink Floyd’s official website. A standalone double-vinyl gatefold version will go for $42.28.  Both formats include a digital download of the album, and will be released June 30.

The Division Bell was recorded by Pink Floyd’s post-Roger Waters lineup — singer/guitarist David Gilmour, singer/keyboardist Richard Wright and drummer Nick Mason – and was released in April of 1994.

The album debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 and has since been certified for sales of three million copies in the U.S.
