The Wall is the eleventh studio album by English rock band Pink Floyd, released 30 November 1979 on Harvest and Columbia Records. A rock opera, its story explores Pink, a jaded rockstar whose eventual self-imposed isolation from society is symbolised by a wall. The record was a commercial success, charting at number one in the US for 15 weeks, and number three in the UK. In 1982, the album was adapted into a feature film of the same name, directed by Alan Parker.

Drummer Nick Mason was barely involved, while keyboardist Rick Wright seemed to be completely out of the picture. Still, The Wall was a mighty, sprawling affair, featuring 26 songs with vocals: nearly as many as all previous Floyd albums combined. The story revolves around the fictional Pink Floyd's isolation behind a psychological wall. The wall grows as various parts of his life spin out of control, and he grows incapable of dealing with his neuroses.
Of course, The Wall album was just the start; Scarfe subsequently created animation shorts for Floyd live shows and for Alan Parker’s 1982 film The Wall. It was a very long project, Scarfe recalls. I mean, the actual sleeve was pretty quick, but the shows, and then the fil. ver the three years it became pretty labour intensive. By comparison, the sleeve was a doddle.

Pink Floyd The Wall followed as a major motion picture in 1982. The band followed the album with a highly theatrical tour which included the building (and tearing down) of a 40-foot high wall of cardboard bricks on the stage. This would be the last Pink Floyd to include Waters (who left the band in 1983) and the recently-fired Wright was hired on as a paid touring musician for this tour.
The Wall was released as a double album in 1979, but Waters had already envisioned it to be more than just an LP. From 1980–1981, the band toured with a hugely ambitious live show. During the course of their performances, a massive thirty-five foot wall of white cardboard bricks was constructed on stage and onto this was projected animations by Scarfe. The Wall would be Water’s penultimate album with the group, and many would argue that it was the band’s last great release. Gerald Scarfe's artwork for the 2012 reissue of The Wall.
