Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour Releases ‘The Piper’s Call’ From Upcoming ‘Luck And Strange’ Album

April 27, 2024

Pink Floyd‘s David Gilmour has released the official video for “The Piper’s Call”, the first single from his new album, “Luck And Strange”. You’ll be able to get ahold of that LP on September 6, 2024.

The video was shot during the recording of “Luck And Strange”.

Gilmour recorded “Luck And Strange” over five months in Brighton and London and it’s his first album of new work in nine years. It was produced by David and Charlie Andrew (ALT-J and Marika Hackman). David 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. 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.”

Check out the musicians on the album: 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!

Of working with his family on “Luck And Strange”, David says: “Polly and I have been writing together for over thirty years and the ‘Von Trapped’ live streams showed the great blend of Romany’s voice and harp-playing and that led us into a feeling of discarding some of the past that I’d felt bound to and that I could throw those rules out and do whatever I felt like doing, and that has been such a joy.”

Great to see David Gilmour still bangin’ away. What a talent. What a legend.
