On An Island

"Making this album with my musician friends has been a positive experience on so many levels"
- David Gilmour

On An Island

On An Island is only  David Gilmour's third  solo album, his and his first studio recording since Pink Floyd's 1994 multi-platinum The Division Bell. From the first moments of the sound collage that begins On An Island, you know it's a special experience that not only bears comparison with the best of Pink Floyd, but also confirms their lead guitarist and singer as an outstanding solo artist. Here he reveals a personal vision and a breadth of styles – folk, jazz, orchestral and rock – brought together as a unified piece by his lyrical guitar playing and instantly recognisable voice.
 
Although Gilmour takes some writing credits, most go to writer Polly Samson, continuing a collaborative partnership that began with The Division Bell. The songs tell of shared experiences that evoke a breadth of moods, from the
hauntingly beautiful title track On An Island (with a guitar performance set to enter the Gilmour canon of classics) to the meditative The Blue and A Pocketful of Stones, as well as the heavier rock and blues numbers Take A Breath and This Heaven. In the spirit of intimacy, this album sees Gilmour's debut on the saxophone, as well as contributions by contemporaries from his pre-Floyd days

This where David Gilmour is, and this is where we are. Listen and wonder, hear and marvel, at the words and music, I know we are, over and over.
