Pink Floyd frontman David Gilmour announces new solo album and Europe tour

MUMBAI: After the worldwide success of Pink Floyd's final album ‘The Endless River’, the band’s guitarist and co-guitarist David Gilmour announced the release of his upcoming fourth solo studio album. The release of the yet-untitled record will coincide with his first tour in nine years.

Late last year, Gilmour told Rolling Stone that the record was still coming together then. “It is coming along very well,” he had said. “There are some sketches that are not finished, and some of them will be started again. There is a few months' work in it yet. I am hoping to get it out this following year. Then I am hoping to do an old man's tour, not a 200-date sort of thing.”

Gilmour kicks off his tour at the historic Roman amphitheatre in Pula, Croatia on 12th 

September following in other places such as Verona and Florence in Italy, Orange in France and Oberhausen in Germany. After that, the ‘On an Island’ singer will play three consecutive nights at the spectacular Royal Albert Hall in London on 23, 24 and 25 September. Gilmour's latest live appearance was at a Bombay Bicycle Club concert at Earls Court in December.

Pink Floyd’s final album ‘The Endless River’ hit the Number 1 chart position in 21 countries around the world, and was considered as one of the UK's Top 10 best-selling albums of 2014. Pink Floyd has also just been named as the seventh top-selling artist globally in 2014 by IFPI (International Federation of the Phonographic Industry).
