Who says album rockers don’t have hits? Not Pink Floyd, who are assembling a best-of collection to be released this November.
A Chrysalis executive said the album will be “aimed at a mainstream audience,” according to Billboard. Though better known for their conceptual full-length recordings, the British prog-rockers have had their share of radio hits, from 1973’s “Money” to 1979’s “Another Brick in the Wall.”
Though Pink Floyd are said to be helping put together the track listing, the band has been split into two different camps since the 1980s, when songwriter and vocalist Roger Waters left the group and sued to stop the three remaining members from using the name. He lost, and has toured as a solo act since, while the three remaining members — guitarist/singer David Gilmour, keyboardist Rick Wright and drummer Nick Mason — continued to tour and record as Pink Floyd with massive success.
Floyd’s only other best-of package, the ironically titled A Collection of Great Dance Songs, was released in 1981.
