A lot of action in the Gilmour camp these days! Apart from the total surprise with Roger a week ago (as covered below) there’s some goodies coming in October as well!
David is collaborating on the new Bryan Ferry album Olympia that’s set for October 25th. Not too many details yet but check out Bryan’s site and listen to the new single – amazing! Don’t think David’s on it but a great song in true Ferry style!
As just announced on BrainDamage.co.uk The Orb’s next album is due in medio October as well with David collaborating on several tracks. David did a session with Orb last year and what initially was planned as a guest appearance ended up being much more and Metallic Spheres is now being released as The Orb featuring David Gilmour!
The EPK from the sessions shows a very relaxed atmosphere with David playing his own NOS signature and what appears to be a Supro double neck lap steel guitar. I can’t make out any pedal board or anything though… sounds to me that it’s all digital but perhaps some details will emerge for us to feast in later!
