Gilmour and Preisner
As a followup to the David Gilmour
tour that we couldn't get tickets for, it seems like
he's in fact touring a new album, On An Island
, due to release on March 6, just before the tour begins. Nice move from Dave indeed.
More interesting detail of the album revealed in the linked page above is that the album features orchestrations by renowned Polish composer Zbigniew Preisner
. Now Gilmour I have always liked, as much as I like Pink Floyd, and Preisner has been my number one favorite composer. Never I expected though that they will work together... Not in my dreams!
First Dylan appears on a VictoriaSecrets TV ad, then Waters writes anti-Bush lyrics, and now Gilmour works with Preisner. These guys won't stop surprising us soon...
