New David Gilmour album coming in 2006
There’s a new David Gilmour album coming out in 2006. It’s going to be called “On an Island”. It’s been 21 years since Gilmour last released a solo album, and 11 since the last Pink Floyd studio album, so this is very welcome news.
I don’t know anything more about it other than it’s title and release date – Mar 6, 2006. I saw some tour dates listed on a Floyd news site I visit. Also, his official site has just launched, too:
We can confirm that on his birthday David will release his new album which has now been completed. Plans for a European and American tour are in the works and some firm dates are set (see below). David wants to tour between March and May of 2006. There is information that David will utilize an orchestra and chorus on his tour.
