David Gilmour and his wife Polly Samson, appeared a writing festival in Ireland on the weekend to discuss his upcoming new album, Rattle That Lock. The songwriting duo spoke about the album and about their lengthy years collaborating.
When asked if she would have like to have worked on lyrics for a Pink Floyd song, Samson replied, “Yes – I would have written ‘we DO need education, and it should be free’!!”
Samson said the theme of the new album is Carpe Diem! Seize every moment and don’t be afraid or hold back.
The album is a follow up to 2006’s On An Island and was a collaboration with Gilmour, Samson and Roxy Music’s Phil Manzanera, along with Jools Holland. It’s expected to come out in September when Gilmour launches his first tour in over a decade.
And for all you Floyd fans dreaming of a reunion. Gilmour dashed those hopes saying ‘it ain’t gonna happen.’
Maybe you’ll see this on the tour in the fall?
