David Gilmour's 'On An Island' Is First CarbonNeutral CD Release On Columbia Records

NEW YORK ( - David Gilmour's long-awaited third solo album, On An Island, the first CarbonNeutral CD to be released by Columbia Records, has debuted at No 6 on the Billboard Top 200 best-selling albums chart giving the artist his first American Top 10 honors outside his work with Pink Floyd.

On An Island - the first David Gilmour solo album since 1984's About Face and the artist's first studio recordings since Pink Floyd's 1994 multi-platinum The Division Bell - has already hit the No 1 spot on the UK charts.

David Gilmour's On An Island is the first Columbia Records release to be manufactured under environmentally responsible CarbonNeutral guidelines. CarbonNeutral is an ecological initiative designed to combat global warming through the restoration of the natural balance of carbon dioxide in the environment. Future Forests, the founding agency behind CarbonNeutral, measures and reduces excessive carbon dioxide in the environment, compensating exactly for the amount of CO 2 produced through unavoidable emissions-i.e., driving, flying, manufacture, electrical production-through forestry sponsorship and 'technology switch' projects. The idea behind a CarbonNeutral CD is that the amount of carbon dioxide produced in the manufacture of the CD is neutralized through reforestation-trees 'breath' carbon dioxide and 'exhale' oxygen-or the implementation of energy saving technologies.

CarbonNeutral supporters include:
Alex James, Afrika Bambaataa, Ali G, Ant & Dec, Atomic Kitten, Ash, Beth Orton, Billie Piper, Bush, Big Brovaz, Chris Lowe, Chuck Leavell, Coldplay, Damien Hirst, Dave Stewart, David Gray, Davina McCall, Dido, Dominic Monaghan, Donovan, Feeder, Foo Fighters, Gary Kemp, Gorillaz, Gwen Stefani, Hugh Cornwell, Hybrid, Ian Brown, Jamiroquai, Jarvis Cocker, Joe Strummer, John Barnes, John Moss, Jonathan Ross, Julian Lennon, Karl Wallinger, Keith Allen, Kelis, Kevin Keegan, Kylie Minogue, Lenny Kravitz, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kylie, Lord Bath, Lulu, Mariella Frostrup, Mark Chadwick, Massive Attack, Melanie C, Michael Elphick, Misteeq, Murray Lochlan Young, Neneh Cherry, Orbital, Perry Farrell, Pet Shop Boys, Pink Floyd, Sting, Richard Blackwell, Roger Taylor, Roland Rivron, Rona Meacher, Rollo, Ronan Keating, Shaggy, Shirley Manson, Simon le Bon, Sting, Stella McCartney, So Solid Crew, Starsailor, Sugababes, Supergrass, The Doves, The Levellers, The Strokes, Toploader, Tommy and Y! orkie of Space, UB40, Yasmin le Bon, Zane (MTV)
