According to reports, it was revealed that the album will be released in September, featuring collaborations with Roxy Music‘s Phil Manzanera, Jools Holland and Gilmour’s own wife, Polly Sampson.

Gilmour performed new songs ‘Girl With A Yellow Dress’ and ‘Boots On The Ground’ at the event. Sampson later described the theme of the album as “seize every moment, look to the future… and don’t be afraid or hold back”.

Meanwhile, Gilmour is to tour the UK and Europe for the first time in nine years, taking place in September. The tour will kick off in Croatia on September 12 and visit various cities in Europe before heading to the UK for three consecutive nights at London’s Royal Albert Hall on September 23-25.

Gilmour has not toured since 2006, though he did recently join Bombay Bicycle onstage during their gig at London’s Earls Court Arena in December, where he played lap steel guitar on the London’s band’s own song ‘Rinse Me Down’, as well as an acoustic version of Pink Floyd’s ‘Wish You Were Here’ from the 1975 album of the same name.
