Animals is the tenth studio album by the English rock band Pink Floyd, released on 23 January 1977 through Harvest and Columbia Records. It was recorded at the band’s Britannia Row Studios in London throughout 1976, and was produced by the band. The album continued the longform compositions that made up their previous works, including Wish You Were Here (1975). The album received unfavourable reviews from some critics but was commercially successful, peaking at number 2 in the UK and number 3 in the US, and it was received much more favourable reviews in later years, as well as many considered as one of the band’s best works.

Animals is both a progressive rock album and a concept album, focusing on the social-political conditions of mid-1970s Britain, and was a change from the style of their earlier work. Tension within the band during production culminated in keyboardist Richard Wright being fired two years later. The album’s cover shows an inflatable pig floating between two chimneys of the Battersea Power Station, conceived by the band’s bassist and lead songwriter Roger Waters, and was designed by long-time collaborator Storm Thorgerson. The band released no singles from the record but promoted it through the In the Flesh tour. Waters’ agitation with audiences during this tour inspired their next project, The Wall.
