  • David Gilmour Covers The Montgolfier Brothers' “Between Two Points” with Romany Gilmour

  • British rock band Pink Floyd's guitarist and singer-songwriter David Gilmour released a cover of British indie dream-pop duo The Montgolfier Brothers' “Between Two Points” on June 17, 2024.

    This time, David Gilmour teamed up with his daughter Romany Gilmour on the track, where she performed the lead vocal as well as playing harp.
    The song will appear on his upcoming fifth solo album “Luck and Strange”, which is set to be released on September 6, 2024.
    The original version of the song is featured on The Montgolfier Brothers' 1999 debut album “Seventeen Stars”.
    The track was written by Mark Tranmer and Roger Quigley. The cover version was produced by David Gilmour and Charlie Andrew.

    “Not trying to make different to the original but I'm not trying to make it same either. I'm just going wherever I'm led by the music, to try and capture something of what the original has,” David Gilmour said of the song. “I've had that song on my playlist since it was released. More recently I mentioned it to one or two people: I assumed that it had been a hit, but no one knew it. I asked Romany to give it a go.”

    He continued, “I realised that Romany has exactly the right sort of vulnerability and youth for the song. In fact, she was halfway through an essay with a train to catch when we asked her: 'OK, I'll sing it once, put the mic on'.”
  • The accompanying music video was directed by Gavin Elder, who filmed in London and Manchester.
    Gavin Elder said, “Romany performs this song with an extraordinary level of fragility, vulnerability and understated control. There's a subtle, yet deep emotional rapport between David and Romany, captured with hand held cameras, enhancing the tension within the video.”

    Mark Tranmer of The Montgolfier Brothers said, “David and Romany's version of our song is a great arrangement and production. Like all the best covers, it diverges from the original but keeps the spirit. Romany's vocal phrasing of Roger Quigley's words and the harp playing are both truly beautiful. David Gilmour's distinctive guitar adds a whole new dimension. I still find it incredible that David and Polly chose to cover our song from all the songs out there.”

  • The new album comprises a 9-track, featuring a appearance from Romany Gilmour, produced by David Gilmour and Charlie Andrew.
    The album was recorded over five months in Brighton and London.
