Pink Floyd‘s David Gilmour has announced that his new album, Luck and Strange, will be released on September 6 on Sony Music.

Luck and Strange was recorded over five months in Brighton and London and is Gilmour’s first album of new material in nine years. The record was produced by Gilmour and Charlie Andrew.

Of this new working relationship, Gilmour says, “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?’”

“He has a wonderful lack of knowledge or respect for this past of mine,” the Pink Floyd guitarist added. “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”.

The majority of the album’s lyrics have been composed by Polly Samson, Gilmour’s co-writer and collaborator for the past thirty years.

Samson says of the lyrical themes covered on Luck and Strange, “It’s written from the point of view of being older; mortality is the constant.”

Gilmour elaborates, “We spent a load of time during and after lockdown talking about and thinking about those kind of things.”

Samson also found the experience of working with Charlie Andrew liberating, saying, “He wants to know what the songs are about, he wants everyone who’s playing on them to have the ideas that are in the lyric informing their playing. I have particularly loved it for that reason”.

The album features eight new tracks along with a beautiful reworking of The Montgolfier Brothers‘ “Between Two Points” and has artwork and photography by the renowned artist Anton Corbijn.

Musicians contributing to the record include Guy Pratt and Tom Herbert on bass, Adam Betts, Steve Gadd and Steve DiStanislao on drums, Rob Gentry and Roger Eno on keyboards, with string and choral arrangements by Will Gardner. The title track also features the late Pink Floyd keyboard player Richard Wright.
