David Gilmour Talks New Solo Album, Tour in 2015

In an interview with Rolling Stone, David Gilmour reveals that his follow up to 2006’s On An Island should be ready for a 2015 release. “It’s coming along very well,” he said. “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.”

As for a tour, Gilmour said that he hopes to get out on (what he called) an “old man’s tour.” The guitarist said that it won’t be a “200-date sort of thing.”

Gilmour also discussed the forthcoming Pink Floyd record, The Endless River, saying that a tour was unlikely considering much of the album features keyboardist Rick Wright, who died of cancer in 2008. He also noted that this will be the last Pink Floyd album, saying that “trying to do it again would mean using second-best material, and that’s not good enough for me.”
