David Gilmour has unveiled a new track from his forthcoming album, ‘Luck and Strange.’

Titled ‘Between Two Points,’ the song is a cover originally by the Montgolfier Brothers from their 1999 debut album, ‘Seventeen Stars.’ Featuring vocals and harp by David’s daughter, Romany, the guitarist shared a monochrome clip on Instagram, showcasing both of them, and added:

“OUT NOW ‘Between Two Points,’ with Romany Gilmour. Listen at the link in bio. Taken from the album ‘Luck and Strange,’ out Sept 6th. Video premieres this evening at 5 pm UK time.”

Gilmour Explains His Choice

Reflecting on why he chose to include this particular track on the album, Gilmour remarked:

“I’ve had that song on my playlist since it was released. Recently, I mentioned it to a few people, assuming it had been a hit, but no one knew it. I asked Romany to give it a go.”

During the lockdowns of 2020 and 2021, David and his family, known as the Von Trappeds, live-streamed performances to a global audience. Romany’s vocal and harp talents emerged during these sessions, leading to their collaboration on the song ‘Yes, I Have Ghosts,’ featured on both the CD and Blu-Ray versions of ‘Luck and Strange.’

Mark Tranmer of The Montgolfier Brothers expressed admiration for Gilmour and Romany’s rendition:

“David and Romany’s version of our song is a fantastic arrangement and production. Like all the best covers, it diverges from the original but retains its spirit. Romany’s interpretation of Roger Quigley’s lyrics and her harp playing are simply beautiful. David Gilmour’s distinct guitar work adds a whole new dimension. I’m still amazed that David and Polly chose to cover our song out of all the songs out there.”

Earlier, the album’s first single, ‘The Piper’s Call,’ was released on April 25. Gilmour will embark on a tour in support of the album, commencing in September 2024. The tour dates include performances at the Intuit Dome in Los Angeles on October 25, the Hollywood Bowl on October 29, 30, and 31, and Madison Square Garden in New York City on November 4, 5, 6, 9, and 10.
