David Gilmour

Earlier this summer David Gilmour announced that a concert film documenting his historic 2016 live shows in Pompeii, Italy, would be screened in select theaters on September 13. Now comes potentially bigger news. Specifically, the Pink Floyd guitarist has revealed he has material left over from his most recent solo album, Rattle That Lock, that he plans to use on a new studio LP.

“I feel very uncomfortable heading off out and doing another tour without having made new music,” Gilmour said, in a promotional video for the concert film. “There are several songs which are close to being complete, which didn’t make it onto this album. I can’t see myself doing another tour without making another album first. That takes me a while. It took 10 years last time. I’m really hoping that, without making any promises, it won’t take ten years this time, [before] I get back in and start working again. Following that, yeah, I’ll be out again.”

Rattle That Lock was released in 2015, following a nine-year lapse between solo albums. David Gilmour: Live at Pompeii will be released on home video on September 29.
