Pink Floyd ‘The Final Cut’ and ‘A Momentary Lapse of Reason’ Set For Vinyl Reissues

Pink Floyd will finish their vinyl reissue program for their studio albums with the release of The Final Cut and A Momentary Lapse of Reason on January 20 via Pink Floyd Records.

For both albums, this is the first time they have been available on vinyl in over two decades. All of the albums in the series have been remastered from the original analogue tapes and pressed in 180g vinyl.

Released originally in 1983, The Final Cut was another global chart-topper for Pink Floyd. During the Falklands War and the era of Thatcherism, this anti-war concept album explored the themes of fallen servicemen, the loss of loved ones and political betrayal.

The Final Cut topped the Albums chart in the U.K. and went to number 6 in America.

A Momentary Lapse of Reason, Pink Floyd’s thirteenth studio album, was released in 1987 and demonstrated a significant change in style for the band with more experimental use of drum machines and samples. The album also saw the return of graphic artist Storm Thorgerson who designed this now iconic cover.

The album went to number 3 on the Albums chart in both the U.S. and Britain.
