Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour talks about upcoming new solo album:

“I’m hoping that I will have an album ready in the next year or two; I’m not that fast. One of the problems, of course, is this lockdown thing. We are now both double vaccinated, so things are looking a little bit brighter. But getting other people in to listen, to help, and to play on things has been kind of impossible in the last year. I do look forward to actually playing some songs with a bunch of actual musicians at some point.”

I assume you haven’t been working strictly acoustically — in the vein of “Yes, I Have Ghosts” — but has lockdown made you think differently about how you write?

Polly Samson (Wife): Guitar and harp is your next album [laughs].

Gilmour: “I think there’ll be more harp. And the tricky bit will be how to tie all the various disparate sounds together into a homogenous whole.”
Samson:”It’d be a shame to never play electric guitar again.”
Gilmour: “I will play electric guitar again. But the electric guitar I’m currently playing is just not quite as “rock god” as one might expect.”
Samson: “See, you shouldn’t have sold them, should you? [Laughs.]”
Gilmour: “I’ve got plenty of lovely guitars left.”

Do you want to tour again?

“I haven’t given that a moment’s thought yet, but we had a lovely time on the last tour we did. I played South America for the first time. It was very gratifying and lovely. At this very moment, playing to a group of 10,000 people, tightly packed together in an arena, is a nightmare, so I wouldn’t want to do that. So we’ve got to let a little time pass.”
