"Louder Than Words" is performed by Pink Floyd. Taken from David Gilmour, Rick Wright and Nick Mason’s1993 Division Bell sessions, it has new lyrics by writer and Division Bell lyricist Polly Samson.
David Gilmour said: “The music for 'Louder Than Words' is from those final sessions, the three of us playing together on the houseboat Astoria with Rick’s idiosyncratic keyboards reminding me now that you don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone. At the start of the album I asked Polly [Samson] to write the lyrics. She felt that what I played her didn’t need words, that hearing us play was more interesting. In the end she wrote just this one, which expresses, beautifully I think, the way the three of us, me, Nick and Rick have something when we play together, that has a magic that is louder than words.”
Gilmour has also made it official that The Endless River will be Pink Floyd's final record.
"Well, Rick [Wright] is gone. This is the last thing that'll be out from us," he told the BBC earlier today. "I'm pretty certain there will not be any follow up to this. And Polly [Samson], my wife, thought that would be a very good lyrical idea to go out on. A way of describing the symbiosis that we have. Or had.
"I didn't necessarily always give [Wright] his proper due," Gilmour added. "People have very different attitudes to the way they work and we can become very judgmental and think someone is not quite pulling his weight enough, without realizing that theirs is a different weight to pull."
