Pink Floyd opens vault of unheard tracks

Postby sledge » Thu May 12, 2011 8:59 am

When I saw this news story this morning of previously lost Pink Floyd songs getting unearthed I got excited.

EMI will release unheard songs by Pink Floyd starting from September, the English rockers' record label said.

The tracks will be unearthed from archives as part of a multi-month schedule of releases, which will include collectors' box sets and remastered studio recordings.

"We have worked together for more than a year on this program which incorporates all the elements that have made Pink Floyd one of the most inspiring forces in modern music," Roger Faxon, EMI chief executive, said in a statement.

The announcement comes four months after the long-time partners said they had signed a new five-year deal and ended their legal dispute.

Pink Floyd, who signed to EMI more than 40 years ago, are most famous for influential and acclaimed albums The Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here and The Wall.

According to EMI, they have sold more than 200 million albums worldwide, and in the United States alone, 1973's The Dark Side of the Moon has sold 45 million copies and is the country's third best-selling album ever.

Last year, Pink Floyd and EMI were embroiled in a legal battle over the label's right to "unbundle" their albums and sell individual tracks online.
