Pink Floyd's upcoming LP 'The Endless River' has become the most pre-ordered album of all-time on Amazon.co.uk
Pink Floyd's new album is the most pre-ordered LP of all-time.
Nick Mason and David Gilmour reunited this year to make 'The Endless River' - which features multiple parts recorded by late keyboard player Rick Wright for their last record 'Division Bell' before he passed away in 2008 aged 65.
Today (03.11.14), Amazon Music announced the album - which comes out on November 10 and is the band's first in 20 years - has overtaken artists such as One Direction, Robbie Williams, Coldplay and David Bowie, to become the most pre-ordered record in the history of Amazon.co.uk.
Speaking about the incredible achievement, Steve Bernstein, Director of Amazon EU Digital Music, said: "Pink Floyd now have the most pre-ordered album on Amazon.co.uk, which is an outstanding achievement for the band and also it proves that they remain one of the most popular groups to grace the UK music scene. After waiting 20 years, our customers have relished being able to listen to new work by Pink Floyd."
