Episode Two: Artwork

Gilmour explains his ideas for the band’s artwork including how his sketch of a single, empty bed was transformed by Storm Thorgerson into the image of 500 beds for the cover of 1987’s “A Momentary Lapse of Reason.”

Episode Three: Live performances

How the band prepared for the prospect of an upcoming tour, and the enormous pressure facing them while rehearsing in a massive aircraft hangar in Toronto.

Episode Four: Unreleased new material from the box-set

Gilmour talks about the loads of new and rare material included in “The Later Years.” His memories are jogged by watching footage of the band flying over Miami Beach, watching swimmers surrounded by sharks.

The band is billing this podcast as Gilmour’s only interview surrounding the launch of the 16-disc box that focuses on post-Roger Waters era Floyd.
