‘The Division Bell’ was the last studio album to be recorded by the band: David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Richard Wright. The album debuted at No 1 in the UK, the USA, Australia and New Zealand, staying at the top of the US charts for 4 weeks; it also went to No 1 in six other countries and, to date, has reached total album sales of over 12 million. The album was recorded by the band at Astoria and Britannia Row Studios with the majority of the lyrics being written by Polly Samson and David Gilmour.

David Gilmour said at the time: "The three of us went into Britannia Row studios, and improvised for two weeks. Playing together and starting from scratch was interesting and exciting, it kick-started the album and the process was very good, it was collaborative and felt more cohesive."

For the 25th anniversary of The Division Bell, Pink Floyd Records re-releases the band's 1994 multi-million selling album that included the Grammy Award-winning track "Marooned" (Best Rock Instrumental Performance). This 25th anniversary edition is available on translucent blue vinyl, echoing the original limited blue vinyl release in 1994.

The Division Bell sleeve artwork of two huge metal heads in profile talking to each other (and in turn, creating a third forward-facing head) was provided by long-time Floyd collaborator Storm Thorgerson. Two three-metre tall metal head sculptures (by John Robertson), weighing 1500 kilogrammes, were placed in a field in Cambridgeshire and photographed across a two-week period in all weather conditions. Storm said: "It was intended that the viewer should not see both at the same time. One saw the single face, or the two profiles which meant that they were then communicating with the image". This relates directly to the album's core themes of communication, talking through problems and making choices.

The album was remastered for the release in 2014 by James Guthrie, Joel Plante and Doug Sax at The Mastering Lab from the original analogue tapes. Bob Ezrin and David Gilmour produced the original album, with orchestral arrangements by the late Michael Kamen. As with the 2014 vinyl reissue, it's a 2-LP set containing all full-length versions of the tracks, as opposed to the original 1994 LP, which featured some edited tracks in order to fit the album on one LP.
