Songfacts®:

  • This two-minute dreamy instrumental was made available to download from the iTunes store on November 4, 2014. The track was free for anyone who pre-ordered the iTunes version of The Endless River but otherwise must be paid for.
  • The Endless River is entirely instrumental until the final song. Asked by Rolling Stone if this had always been the plan, drummer Nick Mason replied: "Initially, we hadn't made a decision about that at all. If some of the material had been more suited to vocals, that might have been the way forward. Once we worked out there was really only one real song on it, I quite liked the idea."
