Pink Floyd’s Animals Pig to fly over Battersea Power Station again

The Pink Floyd Pig will float above Battersea Power Station on Monday (26.09.11) to celebrate the launch of a re-issue series known as Why Pink Floyd?.

EMI have confirmed they will mark the re-issue by recreating the group’s legendary Animals sleeve and fly the pig over the iconic landmark – 35 years after it first happened.

Differing from the original 1976 floatation, the 2011 event will see the Pig fly at the north end of Battersea Power Station next to the river.

On 26 September, EMI Music release all 14 Pink Floyd studio albums remastered as brand new Discovery Editions on CD and available digitally. All 14 studio albums will also be available as one Discovery Box Set.

The same day will see the release of Immersion and Experience Editions of The Dark Side of The Moon, extended to feature unreleased music from the Pink Floyd archives.

Wish You Were Here Experience and Immersion editions and A Foot In The Door – The Best of Pink Floyd follow on November 7.
