Album boasts a near-reunion of Roxy Music

Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour will appear on "6PM," the new album from Phil Manzanera, guitarist for Roxy Music.

The album will be released in the U.K. on July 19 by Expression Records through Ryko/Hannabal. American release details are pending.

According to a spokesperson from Expression Records, Gilmour plays on "Sacred Days," the last element of the five-part "Cissbury Ring" song cycle.

Manzanera was guitarist for Roxy Music from 1971 until the band's split in '83. "6PM," Manzanera's sixth solo album, includes contributions from four of Roxy Music's founders: Brian Eno, keyboards; Andy Mackay, sax; Paul Thompson, drummer. Only vocalist Bryan Ferry is absent.

Manzanera and Gilmour co-wrote "One Slip" on Floyd's "A Momentary Lapse of Reason" (1987). The two also collaborated on "Talk To Me," a song from "The Manzanera Collection" (1995).

Other guests on "6PM" include Gilmour collaborator Robert Wyatt (Soft Machine) and Chrissie Hynde (Pretenders).

Manzanera is planning a future album that will contain four outtakes from "6PM." No word on whether any of those tracks will include work from Gilmour.
