Last week David Gilmour announced the follow up to his 2006 album On An Island. His next effort, Rattle That Lock, will be available in September.
According to Polly Sampson, Gilmour’s wife, the theme of the album is “‘Carpe Diem’ … seize every moment, look to the future, ‘Just Do It’ and don’t be afraid or hold back.”
He played 2 songs at the event. “Girl in a Yellow Dress” and “Boots on the Ground.”
Then he announced a 10 date UK/European tour that will coincide with the albums release.
Here’s where it gets good for us North Americans. On Monday, during a Q&A session with fans, Gilmour said he is definitely coming to our side of the pond in 2016. No dates have been confirmed yet but keep checking back here for updates.
