Pink Floyd will release a newly remastered edition of their 1988 album and live film, “Delicate Sound of Thunder.”
The live film and album, ‘Delicate Sound of Thunder’ was archival footage from their 1987 tour, ‘A Momentary Lapse of Reason’.
The restored film was shared last year as part of Pink Floyd’s box set, ‘The Later Years’, however it will now be available in all major physical formats, as well as containing bonus material.
“In 1987, Pink Floyd made a triumphant resurgence,” Sony Music said in a announcement. “The legendary British band, formed in 1967, had suffered the loss of two co-founders: keyboardist and vocalist Richard Wright, who left after sessions for The Wall in 1979, and bass player and lyricist Roger Waters, who had left to go solo in 1985, soon after the 1983 album The Final Cut. The gauntlet was thus laid down for guitarist-singer David Gilmour and drummer Nick Mason, who proceeded to create the multi-platinum A Momentary Lapse of Reason album, a global chart smash, which also saw the return of Richard Wright to the fold.”
The next deluxe box set will arrive on November 20, having been restored on top of the original 35mm film and arriving in Blu-ray and DVD formats.
The statement added: “As a record of the creative power of David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Richard Wright at their incendiary best, Pink Floyd’s Delicate Sound of Thunder is an engrossing and uplifting event, to be enjoyed by any rock music fan.”
The new edition will include sets of two CDs, three LPs, vinyl or four-disc sets, as well as a 24-page photographic book and another book with posters and postcards.
The ‘A Momentary Lapse of Thunder’ tour marked the end of an era at Pink Floyd, as David Gilmour and Nick Mason won the legal battle over the band’s name after a dispute with Roger Waters, who had parted ways with the band. band years before.
