The artwork for Pink Floyd’s first album in 20 years was designed by a teenager

On November 10, Pink Floyd will release their first new studio album in 20 years, titled The Endless River. The band have never taken the covers of their albums lightly, and with the passing of Storm Thorgerson (the man behind almost every album cover the band have ever released), they were forced to look elsewhere for the impending album.

Who did they end up with? None other than 18-year-old Egyptian, Ahmed Emad Eldin. In an interview with VICE, the young graphic designer touched on the inspiration behind the artwork (pictured above) for the record, saying, "Every design has its own conditions. This one came to me after thinking about the intersection of life, nature, and what is beyond the world—what takes you to new limits." 

Eldin was discovered by the band's creative team through the website Behance, where he has a good amount of his work posted, which has also garnered notable amounts of traffic. 

Pre-orders for The Endless River are on sale now.
