David Gilmour is set to release a new studio album on March 7, 2006. The album is titled On an Island, and will be his first studio album since Pink Floyd’s The Division Bell, which was released in 1994. Fender.com has a nice write-up about Gilmour’s new album.
In addition to playing guitar on the album, Gilmour makes his recorded debut playing the saxophone. He’ll be touring behind the album from March to May, with 10 dates in the U.S. and Canada.
