The album featured a number of guest musicians, including Jeff Porcaro, Pino Palladino, and Steve Winwood, and it included several notable tracks, such as "Blue Light" and "Love on the Air."

 Gilmour's third solo album, "On an Island," was released in 2006, and it was his first solo album in over 20 years. The album saw Gilmour returning to his roots, with a sound that was reminiscent of Pink Floyd's early albums. The album was recorded with the help of several of Gilmour's long-time collaborators, including Richard Wright, Phil Manzanera, and David Crosby. The album was a critical and commercial success, and it included several standout tracks, such as the title track, "On an Island," and "Take a Breath."

 In 2015, Gilmour released his fourth solo album, "Rattle That Lock." The album featured a mix of styles, including rock, jazz, and blues, and it was recorded with the help of several notable musicians, including Jools Holland, Phil Manzanera, and Robert Wyatt. The album was well received by critics and fans alike, and it included several standout tracks, such as "Today," "A Boat Lies Waiting," and the title track, "Rattle That Lock."

 Throughout his solo career, Gilmour has continued to push the boundaries of guitar playing and songwriting, and he has remained a vital and influential figure in the world of rock music. His solo albums have showcased his versatility and creativity, and they have cemented his status as one of the greatest guitarists and songwriters of all time.
