Pink Floyd’s Dave Gilmour to release solo album in 2015

It'll be the follow-up to 2006's 'On An Island'

Dave Gilmour of Pink Floyd has revealed that he’s working on a new album.

Speaking to Rolling Stone, Gilmour confirmed that the follow-up to his 2006 solo LP ‘On An Island’ is “coming along very well”.

He added: “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.”

Gilmour also said that he plans to embark on “an old man’s tour”, which he defines as “not a 200-date sort of thing”.

Pink Floyd recently confirmed that they’ll release new album ‘The Endless River’ in November, their first since 1994 and possibly their last ever release.

‘The Endless River’ could become the most pre-ordered album of all time on Amazon, taking the title from current holders One Direction.

Meanwhile, Gilmour recently said that the idea of continuing with the band beyond their forthcoming album makes him “break out in a cold sweat”.

Speaking to Rolling Stone about the final chapter in their career, Gilmour said: “I’m really enjoying my life and my music. There’s no room for Pink Floyd. The thought of doing any more causes me to break out in a cold sweat.”
