Written and sung by Richard Wright, "Summer '68" was recorded at Abbey Road Studios in July 1970. The song is unique in the band's oeuvre as Wright created layers of vocal harmonies similar to the sound of The Beach Boys. The song was never performed live by the band.

It is the final Pink Floyd song with lyrics written solely by Wright.
