Gilmour Announces New Album Luck and Strange

Back in April, David Gilmour announced the release of his new album Luck and Strange, arriving on September 6.

The album itself was produced by David and Charlie Andrew, with the latter renowned for his work with ALT-J and Marika Hackman.

“We invited Charlie to the house, so he came and listened to some demos, and said things like, “Well, why does there have to be a guitar solo there?” and ‘Do they all fade out? Can’t some of them just end?”, Gilmour said of the album at the time.

He also added, “He has a wonderful lack of knowledge or respect for this past of mine. He’s very direct and not in any way overawed, and I love that. That is just so good for me because the last thing you want is people just deferring to you”. 

“It’s written from the point of view of being older; mortality is the constant”, Gilmour added, “We spent a load of time during and after lockdown talking about and thinking about those kind of things”.
