Although Pink Floyd had a productive 2022, the co-founding member and drummer Nick Mason is no longer anticipating any music coming from the band.

Mason said in an interview:

“I think we’re past the point of even considering the idea of Pink Floyd doing something, to make another album.”

However, Mason was not the only member who has been busy in the recent years with their new groups and endeavors. Recently, he shared that he and his former bandmates would like to utilize Pink Floyd’s legendary status to effect positive change.

“I think it would be great if it was possible to become a force for good. I mean, I know that sounds a bit trite, but a bit like Live 8,” Mason said, referring to the series of 2005 benefit concerts that raised money to help poor countries such as those in Africa. The supersized and hugely successful event took place almost 20 years to the date.

Although Mason thought that mammoth benefit might be difficult to replicate now because they are a bit short of “Nelson Mandela figures these days,” still he finds the Live 8 terrific. That said, if somebody were to spearhead the organization of form such an event, he’d would happily take part. Mason added:

“If there was someone who was capable of assembling bands, I’d love to be part of something.

“I’d rather it wasn’t fighting Russia. I’d rather it was something a little more sort of humane, I suppose, the world peace or whatever it is – to use music for good or social change in the right way.”

Last April, the band released a new song “Hey Hey Rise Up” in support of the people of Ukraine. It marked as their first new original music recorded together since 1994.
