This year marks the 20th anniversary of Pink Floyd’s final studio album, The Division Bell – an occasion that will be celebrated with a box set version of the record due out July 1, according to a press announcement on Tuesday. The set will include the original album on vinyl; a previously unreleased Blu-Ray version; colored 45 versions of the singles “Take It Back” and “High Hopes”; and the CD version of the album.
Originally released in 1994, The Division Bell is the second Pink Floyd album that did not feature original band founder Roger Waters, but rather piloted by David Gilmour, Nick Mason and the late Richard Wright. It was a huge hit as the record debuted on the U.S. album charts at Number One and was accompanied by a tour. As of this moment, it is the last release of original material from the band.
The Division Bell was previously reissued on CD as part of Pink Floyd’s remastering series in 2011.
