The Dark Side of the Moon is the eighth album by Pink Floyd, released on 1 March 1973 by Harvest Records. The album built on ideas explored in earlier recordings and live shows, but lacks the extended instrumental excursions following the departure of founding member and principal contributor, Syd Barrett, in 1968, that characterized their earlier work.
It thematically explores conflict, greed, the passage of time, and mental illness, the latter partly inspired by Barrett’s deteriorating mental state.
