The Division Bell is the fourteenth studio album by British progressive rock band Pink Floyd, released in March 1994 on EMI Records and Columbia Records in the U.S.

The music was written mostly by David Gilmour and Richard Wright; lyrically, the album deals with themes of communication.

Recording took place in several locations, including the band's Britannia Row Studios, and Gilmour's houseboat, Astoria.

The production team included Pink Floyd stalwarts such as producer Bob Ezrin, engineer Andy Jackson and saxophonist Dick Parry. Gilmour's new wife, Polly Samson, co-wrote many of the album's lyrics.

Richard Wright performed his first lead vocal on a Pink Floyd album since 1973's The Dark Side of the Moon, on the track "Wearing The Inside Out".

The Division Bell has a more cohesive musical feel compared to the previous album A Momentary Lapse of Reason, that is probably the result from the Band jamming and playing together in the studio to develop the songs, as they had done on earlier albums, such as Wish You Were Here.  

The instrumental track "Marooned" is a highlight of the interplay between Gilmour's guitar and Wright's keyboard playing.  "High Hopes" is also a stand-out track with a great lyric, melody and song strucutre that builds into the final sequence of Gimour's guitar solo. 

Longtime Floyd collaborator Storm Thorgerson provided the album artwork. He erected two large metal heads, each the height of a double-decker bus, in a field near Ely. The sculptures were positioned close together, and photographed in profile, to give the illusion that not only were they either facing or talking to each other, they also presented the viewer with a third face.   Ely Cathedral is visible on the horizon.

The album reached number one in the UK and the US. Its release was followed immediately by a tour of the US and Europe.

The Division Bell was certified gold, platinum and double platinum in the US in 1994, and triple platinum in 1999.

This 2LP Record is the 20th Anniversary Double Vinyl Edition, Remastered on 180 Gram Heavyweight Vinyl with Full-length tracks cut in 2014 from the original analogue masters, housed in a Gatefold Sleeve with 320kbps mp3 download, pressed in Europe.

In 1994 the album had been released as a single Vinyl LP record with a number of the tracks edited down to fit on a single vinyl record.  This is the first time that the full album has been released on vinyl.
