I had seen that in an article somewhere too. If I understood it correctly, did he say that two of the songs were called "Just Do It" and "Carpe Diem", or did the author just capitalize those phrases to emphasize their connection with the album's supposed theme?

What a lovely birthday present this news is! It's certainly quite evocative, which I like. Hopefully the music has a bit of an edge, too. Something a little ballsy.

"Just Do It" and "Carpe Diem" are the albums theme. He previewed 2 tracks, one an instrumental called "The Girl in the Yellow Dress" and a song called "Boots on the Ground". Unfortunatly I have not heard these tracks yet. Jools Holland plays Keys on the instrumental track and the second track was described as having an "Upbeat tempo"

It would be neat to hear a release that's more upbeat, since the last four projects he's been a part of have been a bit mellow (I'm counting Metallic Spheres here, so that might be debatable).

I like On An Island, but it was kind of mellow. I'm looking forward to this and hopefully Roger releases his new album this year too.

I did read somewhere that he said that this album will be a departure from some of his earlier work, what that means could be anyone's guess. For all we know it could be an album full of Rolling Stones covers played on the Kazoo.

If David Gilmour covered the Rolling Stones on kazoo for a whole album, I would buy it on every format imaginable. Even if he released it on twelve individual Edison cylinders. That is the most beautiful idea I have heard in a long time.

Haha! Realistically David has released 2 albums in 2 years (The Endless River and Rattle That Lock) so, for him, that's 20 years worth of work, I don't think there'll be any more.

Tomorrow at 5pm GMT a special announcement will be made. That's via Pink Floyd and David Gilmour's Facebook page.

I'm assuming it's the new album and when it'll be available.

Per Polly Samson on Twitter, either the album or the song (I'm not sure which) will be played on the Chris Evans Show, Friday morning at 8:50 (which is 3:50 on the east coast). This is the photo that accompanied the tweet:

If that's the album cover, I really like it. Very Bruce Springsteen-esque.

I'm pretty sure it's just the song that will be played. I have read that the single is to be released on the 18th of July, I'm not sure of the validity of that statement though.

Okay let me clarify a few things:
  • The exciting announcement arriving at 5pm today is 5pm British Summer Time (BST), not GMT. BST is GMT+0100
  • It will be the single "Rattle That Lock" that will be played on the Chris Evans Breakfast Show, on BBC Radio 2 - I believe this is available internationally via the Radio 2 website as well as the BBC iPlayer for UK residents. I suggest checking here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio2 first to see if you can listen live before tomorrow (Just click "listen live" when on the page).
And, thanks to Neptune Pink Floyd, we can all watch the EPK which accompanies the single (containing more music, including a guitar solo):
http://www.neptunepinkfloyd.co.uk/david ... -bbc-radio

NPF are reporting that the song will be played by Sara Cox at 8:10am BST and not at 8:50am as Polly had tweeted. This could be true as Chris Evans has quit the breakfast show recently after being given the job of presenting a reincarnation of Top Gear. I have no idea when he's actually due to leave though, so you may want to tune in earlier in case you miss it.

I just listened to "Rattle That Lock" on Spotify this morning, and I really like it. I didn't really expect a certain sound, but it was an unexpected sound. It has a sort of New Age vibe mixed with classic Floyd and a solid backbeat. It's a good direction. I wonder if the whole album will have some interesting sounds like that.

Although, I don't think David is sounding as good vocally these days, but the man is 69 years old, so I can't complain. I still enjoy Brian Wilson's new music even though he stopped being a good singer in 1971. :roll:
