Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour working on new solo album

David Gilmour is currently in the studio working on a new solo album.

Gilmour’s wife, author Polly Samson, recently posted an Instagram photo from the sessions, featuring the Pink Floyd guitarist recording with his backup singers.

Graham Nash originally leaked news of Gilmour’s album last November, when he revealed that he and David Crosby were going to contribute vocals to the project.

"What the hell would it cost you to have David Crosby and Graham Nash getting on a bloody train to Brighton to sing with you?',” said Nash on Vintage TV’s Needle Time program. “We're musicians. We love good songs. We'll sing them until we are dead."

Gilmour’s last studio album was 2006’s “On An Island”; he released “Live In Gdansk” in 2008 and collaborated with ambient techno group The Orb in 2010 for their project, “Metallic Spheres.”
