A legendary rock band

The band ‘Pink Floyd’ are one of the world’s most successful rock bands. It all started when four young students from London and Cambridge began performing in London in the late 1960s and they went on to sell more than 250 million records worldwide. Two of their most famous albums are ‘The Dark Side of the Moon’ in 1973 and ‘Wish you Were Here’ in 1975.

Apart from their ground-breaking and innovative music, their albums were also loved by fans for the interesting artwork on the cover of their records. The band are now planning to release a new album this month called ‘The Endless River’ which will be their first new work for over twenty years. Once again the cover has striking artwork. It’s an image of a man sailing on a river of clouds and was created by a young Egyptian digital artist.
