David Gilmour To Release Solo Album, Tour in 2015
Pink Floyd fans are in luck: the legendary rock band—who hasn’t released an album in over two decades—is gearing up for the release of The Endless River, due out November 10. Guitarist/vocalist David Gilmour, whose last solo record came out in 2006, is also planning a new album next year. So suddenly prolific! Gilmour recently told Rolling Stone that “there’s a few months in [the record] yet. I’m hoping to get it out this following year.” He also made reference to “an old man’s tour… not a 200-date sort of thing.” For the latest tour news and album release announcements, visit Gilmour’s website, and pick up that Pink Floyd album in two weeks.
Formed in 1965 by Syd Barrett, Nick Mason, Roger Waters, and Richard Wright, Pink Floyd gained popularity by performing in London’s underground music scene. David Gilmour joined the band in 1967 and Barrett left in 1968 due to his deteriorating mental health. Pink Floyd was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996 and the UK Music Hall of Fame in 2005. The band has sold more than 250 million records worldwide, 74.5 million alone in the United States.
