Writer Polly Samson knows the power of the pen. On Saturday she tweeted to her 15k followers: “Btw Pink Floyd album out in October is called “The Endless River.” She’s not just proud of her husband, Pink Floyd guitarist and lead singer David Gilmour, for releasing a new Floyd entry after a 20 year hiatus. She’s also credited as lyricist on The Endless River, which was initially instrumental. This isn’t Samson’s first job as lyricst: she worked on Pink Floyd’s 1993 album The Division Bell and Gilmour’s 2006 solo album On An Island, too.
Samson is also promoting her latest book of short stories, Perfect Lives, and her forthcoming novel The Kindness (April 2015).
