Soundtrack from the Film More is the first full-length soundtrack album by the English rock band Pink Floyd, released on 27 July 1969. The film More was made in Luxembourg in 1969 and was directed by Barbet Schroeder. In it, two songs can be heard that were not included on the album: "Seabirds", and "Hollywood". The album actually comprises the other music used in the film, sometimes in a completely different form.[citation needed]

The original American edition shortened the title to just More. This was the last of three Pink Floyd albums to be released in the United States by the Tower Records division of Capitol Records. The 1973 US re-issue was released on Harvest Records. Although the CD edition restores the original United Kingdom title in all countries, it is represented differently on the spine (Music from the Film More) and label More.

More contains some acoustic folk ballads, a genre that appeared sparsely on later works. It also contains some of the band's "heaviest" recordings such as "The Nile Song" and "Ibiza Bar",[3][4] as well as several instrumental tracks, featuring their experimental and avant-garde approach.

This is Pink Floyd's first full album without founding member Syd Barrett, who was ousted from the group in early 1968 during the recording of their previous album, A Saucerful of Secrets. It is the only Pink Floyd album to feature David Gilmour as the sole lead vocalist, except for 1987's A Momentary Lapse of Reason and it is also the first album to be produced by Pink Floyd without assistance from Norman Smith. It was recorded at Pye Studios, Marble Arch, London and engineered by Brian Humphries.[5] More reached #9 in the UK and—upon re-release in 1973—#153 in the US. In 1987, the album was re-released on CD. A digitally remastered CD was released in 1995 in the UK and 1996 in the US.
