Pink Floyd's "The Division Bell" to be reissued on blue vinyl in honor of album's 25th anniversary

Pink Floyd RecordsPink Floyd will mark the 25th anniversary of its 1994 studio album The Division Bell by reissuing the record on June 7 as a limited-edition two-LP set pressed on translucent blue vinyl. The release is available for pre-order now at the group's official online store.

The Division Bell was the last album 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 the U.S. in April 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.

"Marooned," one of two instrumentals on The Division Bell, won a Grammy for Best Rock Instrumental Performance. The album also featured three tracks that made it into the top 10 of Billboard's Mainstream Rock chart -- "Take It Back," "High Hopes" and "Keep Talking," the latter of which reached #1 on the tally. Gilmour's then-fiancee and future wife Polly Samson contributed lyrics to seven of the record's 11 songs.

Gilmour co-produced The Division Bell with Bob Ezrin.
