"A New Machine", parts 1 and 2 are songs from Pink Floyd's 1987 album, "A Momentary Lapse of Reason". They serve as bookends to the instrumental track Terminal Frost, and feature David Gilmour's voice, electrically distorted, through a Vocoder and a rising synth note. The narrator seems to express weariness with a lifetime spent in the one body, waiting for the moment of death, but seeks consolation in the fact that this "waiting" will eventually end. These three tracks were the only ones from the album that were never officially released live.

The two songs were the first Pink Floyd songs to be credited solely to David Gilmour since "Childhood's End", from their 1972 album "Obscured by Clouds".
