David Gilmour Recording New Song for Teenage Cancer Trust

Post by Keith Jordan »

David Gilmour has been recording a new song for UK charity Teenage Cancer Trust at Mark Knopfler’s British Grove Studios in London.

Guy Fletcher, Dire Straits keyboard player, recorded them at the London studio which features some rather excellent vintage equipment in addition the modern stuff. Guy said, ” I recorded David yesterday for the TCT project. It was great to see him and Polly. (And their dogs!)”.

David Gilmour’s wife and lyricist also posted a couple of photos from the session on her Instagram page. David’s famous black strat was being put to work on the recording which, hopefully, we will know more about soon.

The Black Strat was auctioned off for charity - is this a replica? :?:

He said before that he didn't need the original guitars because he could always get a replica.

I'm just happy that we're getting more Floyd solo music; nobody could blame them if they had retired by now.

At 8.54 it sounds like Cruise, Gilmour solo album about face.
