Hear an early studio version of Pink Floyd’s High Hopes
Last Friday, Pink Floyd released an alternate version of High Hopes, the closing track of their 1994 album, The Division Bell. It will appear on The Later Years, a forthcoming box set collecting the works of Pink Floyd after 1987.
This version of High Hopes is a previously unreleased studio recording from 1994, and features a different guitar solo and more emphasis on David Gilmour’s vocals.
It’s one of seven 1994 studio recordings that appear on the sprawling, 16-disc box set, as part of more than six hours of previously unheard audio and seven hours of audiovisual material from the albums The Division Bell, A Momentary Lapse of Reason and The Endless River.
As for live material, The Later Years features full unreleased audio and remastered video of two concerts: a 1989 show in Venice, where Pink Floyd performed on a floating stage in front of St. Mark’s Square, and a 1990 Knebworth benefit concert in aid of the Nordoff Robbins charity and BRIT School. It also features Gilmour, Nick Mason and Richard Wright’s last ever performance together in 2007.
Pre-order The Later Years here before its release on 29 November.
