Pink Floyd are re-releasing all of their studio albums in new editions on September 26. In addition deluxe versions of three of the bands most-cherished albums will be released. First, “The Dark Side of the Moon” (September 26), follwed by “Wish You Were Here” (November 7) and “The Wall” (February 27).
Drummer Nick Mason has also revealed that more of the special editions (which feature alternate and live tracks) will be released for other Floyd albums. Mason told Billboard.com: “We will do some more sort of in-depth versions of other albums, but I don’t know what we’ve got in the pipeline for that, yet.”
As for the bonus material on the first three editions, Mason said he really enjoyed a different version of “Wish You Were Here” that featured violin. “When I heard that for the first time, I couldn’t for the life of me understand why we never put that on record in the first place,” he said. “I felt like, ‘This is great! Why didn’t we use this?!’”
In regards to any future Pink Floyd reunion, the drummer said, “I live in hope. I’d love to actually do something together again.”
