Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour working on new solo album

Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour confirms he is working on new solo album.

“It's coming along very well," Gilmour tells Rolling Stone while promoting Floyd’s final album, “The Endless River.” "There are some sketches that aren't finished, and some of them will be started again. There's a few months' work in it yet. I'm hoping to get it out this following year. Then I'm hoping to do an old man's tour, not a 200-date sort of thing."

Gilmour says he plans to play smaller venues, as he did on his 2006 trek in support of “On An Island.”

"There haven't been many discussions about the tour," he says. "But places like Radio City Music Hall sound like the right sort of vibe for me."

On November 10, Pink Floyd will issue their final album, “The Endless River.”

The project features material recorded by Gilmour, keyboardist Rick Wright and drummer Nick Mason during sessions for 1994’s “The Division Bell.”

The project serves as the band’s tribute to Wright, who died from cancer in 2008 at the age of 65.
