David Gilmour has told Rolling Stone magazine that his new album is “coming along very well” and that he believes it will be released in 2015.

In addition to a new David Gilmour album, there will also be a tour, but it won’t be a massive 200 date tour, more like an “old man’s tour”. David was 68 in March 2014 and touring does take its toll! David said, “There haven’t been many discussions about the tour. But places like Radio City Music Hall sound like the right sort of vibe for me.”

On the prospect of Pink Floyd touring their new album The Endless River, that is not going to happen. David said, “Without [Richard Wright], that’s kind of impossible,”

Although David Gilmour has performed fairly recently with Roger Waters – of particular note is the Gilmour appearance on The Wall Tour in London – the relationship, which was half of Gilmour’s lifetime ago, is feeling a little frosty again.

Roger’s Facebook rant the other week about him not being on the new Pink Floyd album, and Gilmour’s thoughts in the Rolling Stone interview are quite telling.

David said, “Roger was tired of being in a pop group. He is very used to being the sole power behind his career. The thought of him coming into something that has any form of democracy to it, he just wouldn’t be good at that. Besides, I was in my thirties when Roger left the group. I’m 68 now. It’s over half a lifetime away. We really don’t have that much in common anymore.”

  1. I’m grateful that any of pink floyds artists at this time of life still give us the pleasure of there music. Thank you.

  2. Even though We will not get the chance to see Pink Floyd in concert again( I was fortunate enough to catch them on their last 2 tours in 88, 94 ) at least We will have Gilmour on tour and new Floyd- like music to listen to. I can only hope that Gilmour’s new music will be more of a throwback to classic Floyd rockers and first 2 solo albums

  3. Anything that Gilmour does is great. SO far I have loved both the Floyd albums (especially the new one) and Gilmour’s solo albums. To me he is one of the greatest musical talents of our times.

  4. It is quite possible that he will have a new album out this year and he has been talking about touring too. Get our newsletter to receive news if a tour is announced – see link top left of the page.

  5. I ALWAYS follow Pink Floyd, David Gilmour, and Roger Waters concerts WHEN I can afford the tickets. Usually the price is more than the cost of a month’s worth of groceries; making the tickets very dear. However I have seen ALL of their shows collectively performed since 1982. I LOVE the depth and empathy of their works. Roger Waters and David Gilmour are polar opposites in many ways; Roger seeking light and enlightenment by moving through darkness ; whereas David Gilmour has the ability to bring me back to mellow evenings on the beach with my wife. I LOVE both of their works; they hit me deep in my core…the SOUL. Their work can terrify and enlighten in a surrealistic science fiction dystopian kind of way. It is very difficult to explain in words; music has an accessibility as an art form; truly surpassing visual and written forms in, music’s ability to assert masses of people instantaneously. Thanks for the music Pink Floyd… KEEP ON ROCKING GENTS……..
