A new Pink Floyd album - based on recordings made 20 years ago - is reportedly in the works.

While the news has not been officially confirmed, Polly Samson, the wife of Pink Floyd guitarist and vocalist David Gilmour, posted a tweet revealing the plan this weekend.

The recordings were originally made during sessions for The Division Bell album in 1994, but were never released.

The original tapes - dubbed 'The Big Spliff' by the band - featured ambient tunes with no lyrics, created by Gilmour, Nick Mason and the late Rick Wright. Former band member Roger Waters is not believed to be involved.

Back-up singer Durga McBroom-Hudson said she had added vocals to the tracks, with Gilmour also providing lyrics.

An official announcement is expected from the group this week.
