With David Gilmour's new album, On An Island, already available in some European countries, released on Monday in the UK and rest of Europe, and Tuesday in the US, we have more news on radio broadcasts, and of our full review of the album. If you want to know what we think of it, now you can find out!

An air of chilled contentment seeps out of the third solo effort from the Pink Floyd guitarist. Coming some twenty-two years after About Face, it is a distinctly different proposition. Gone are throwaway tunes like Blue Light, and in come deeply personal, family-centric meditations.

We noted yesterday that US digital station Sirius Satellite Radio will be devoting its The Vault channel to David Gilmour and Pink Floyd, featuring music and interviews from Monday 6th March to Friday 10th March.

Their wall-to-wall coverage begins at 7am ET on the Monday, for a whole week. As part of their coverage, the Vault channel will also broadcast an exclusive interview with David, on Tuesday, March 7th. Gilmour will discuss his new album track-by-track in the interview, which will be broadcast at 12 pm ET and 6 pm ET. You can hear the interview by going to

The album can be ordered through these special links: US/International, UK/Europe, Canada, France or Germany.

To order the vinyl edition, which will be in a specially designed gatefold sleeve: Amazon UK, France, or Germany. The vinyl edition will be released shortly after the CD version - as yet we don't have the exact date, but you shouldn't have to wait too long. A painstaking job is being taken with this edition, so should be worth it!
