Appearing at the Borris House Festival of Writing and Ideas in Carlow, Ireland last weekend, David Gilmour revealed several new details about his new solo album, including its title: Rattle That Lock. Now, Brain Damage, a monthly Pink Floyd podcast, has shared even more news from the event. In a Q&A with fans, Gilmour confirmed that he plans to tour North America in 2016.

The forthcoming jaunt will mark Gilmour’s first tour of America in a decade. His last outing came in 2006 behind his last solo album, On an Island.  Prior to crossing the Atlantic, however, Gilmour will play a number of shows in the UK and Europe in September. You can find his current tour itinerary below.

Brain Damage also has audio of the two songs Gilmour previewed during last weekend’s event. Scroll to the 1:29:30 mark to hear snippets of “Girl with a Yellow Dress” and “Boots on the Ground” as well as details of the tour.
