The new Pink Floyd album, called “The Endless River,” will be released Nov. 10, and the band has offered more details on its creation. Recorded by the trio of David Gilmour, Rick Wright and Nick Mason — Roger Waters is no longer a member of the band — the album is mostly instrumental and expands on ideas originally laid down during the sessions that produced 1994’s “The Division Bell.”

Produced by a consortium including Gilmour, Roxy Music guitarist Phil Manzanera, Youth and Andy Jackson, “The Endless River” was a long time coming, according to Gilmour in a statement.

“We listened to over 20 hours of the three of us playing together and selected the music we wanted to work on for the new album. Over the last year we’ve added new parts, re-recorded others and generally harnessed studio technology to make a 21st century Pink Floyd album. With Rick gone (Wright died in 2008), and with him the chance of ever doing it again, it feels right that these revisited and reworked tracks should be made available as part of our repertoire.”

The band also released the album’s art, the first since Pink Floyd’s longtime designer Storm Thorgerson of Hipgnosis died in 2013. Picking up where he left off is an 18-year-old Egyptian digital artist named Ahmed Emad Eldin, who created an image of a man rowing a boat across an ocean of clouds.

“When we saw Ahmed’s image, it had an instant Floydian resonance,” said Aubrey “Po” Powell, an original Hipgnosis partner.
