The Pink Floyd Exhibition - Their Mortal Remains - in Milan, Italy, reminds the world about the British band ahead of the release in October of their first new album in 20 years. The album, The Endless River, is based on sessions with late keyboardist Rick Wright, who died in 1968. The band is best known for The Wall. Released as a double album with The Dark Side of the Moon on 30 Nov 1979, the Wall was one of the best sellers of the 1980s. It was performed live with elaborate theatrical effects, and adapted into a feature film, Pink Floyd - The Wall, in 1982. The release on 18 Jun 2014 of a boxed set of The Division Bell, the band's last album, which sold millions of copies, suggests other commemorative boxed sets are in the works.
