Might a new David Gilmour album be on the way soon?

A tidbit dropped by David Gilmour in a new trailer for his Live at Pompeii DVD suggests the former Pink Floyd guitarist and frontman might have a new album sooner rather than later.

Gilmour released Rattle That Lock in 2015, his first album since 2006’s On An Island. Per Rolling Stone, Gilmour makes a comment in the trailer that makes it seem like his next album could arrive much faster than that.

“There are several songs that are close to being complete, which didn’t make it onto this album,” Gilmour said. “I can’t see myself doing another tour with making another album first, and that takes me awhile. It took 10 years last time, and I’m really hoping – without making any promises – that it won’t take 10 years this time, that I’ll get back in and start working again. And following that, yeah, I’ll be out again.”

Gilmour’s Live At Pompeii performance will be released later this month and will be available on CD, DVD, and Vinyl. Hopefully we won’t have to wait much longer until we hear more from him.
