Influential guitar/vocalist David Gilmour of iconic rock band Pink Floyd has just announced that he will be releasing a brand new solo album in 2015. He last put out a solo album in 2006 and the last time Pink Floyd released an album was over 20 years ago. With two albums on the way from the hardworking rocker fans have a lot to look forward to.
In an interview with Rolling Stone Magazine Gilmour had this to say about his upcoming work, “It’s coming along very well,” he told the magazine. “There are some sketches that aren’t finished, and some of them will be started again. There’s a few months’ work in it yet. I’m hoping to get it out this following year.”
He also said that a tour behind The Endless River was unlikely, because a large portion of the record featured keyboardist Rick Wright, who died of cancer in 2008. “Without him, that’s kind of impossible,” said Gilmour, “I’m really enjoying my life and my music. There’s no room for Pink Floyd. The thought of doing any more causes me to break out in a cold sweat.” Stay tuned for more news on Gilmours soon to be released albums in the future.
