David Gilmour confirms he’s working on a new album

It has been verified that guitarist David Gilmour of Pink Floyd is presently recording a new album.

His wife, Polly Samson, recently released pictures of her husband at British Grove Studios, bringing attention to his current studio endeavor. Based on the pictures, it seems that he is now working with Guy Pratt, Goldie, and Brian Eno, among others.

Included in the photos is producer Charlie Andrew, who has produced music for artists such as Alt-J, Marika Hackman, and Suvi. This indicates that the album features a stellar cast and will most likely mark the beginning of a progressive full-band approach.

This would be Gilmour’s first endeavor since Rattle That Lock in 2015. Since then, he has sometimes dropped hints about a new LP in favor of releasing the occasional stand-alone song. Furthermore, he hasn’t performed live since 2016.

The specifics of the project are yet unknown; Samson’s confirmation of it was revealed during an interview she gave to promote her latest book, A Theatre for Dreamers, in the Romanian journal Zile si Nopti. Later on, she revealed her collection of studio images.

In March, Gilmour himself previously stated, “Life is to be continued, music is to be continued, I have every intention of making another album. My intention is for it not to take nine years this time, but there’s no promises.”

It’s hoped that if it’s at the studio stage now, as the photographs appear to show tracks being mixed, then 2024 will see its release.
