David Gilmour has confirmed a September 18 release for his forthcoming solo album, “Rattle That Lock”, and announced a series of 2016 North American shows in support of the project.
The follow-up to 2006’s “On An Island” sees the Pink Floyd guitarist working alongside wife and lyricist Polly Samson and Roxy Music’s Phil Manzanera, who co-produced the record with Gilmour.
“Rattle That Lock” will be available in a CD edition with clothbound, foil-blocked cover, including a 22-page booklet, and also on heavyweight vinyl, digital download and a deluxe box edition, which includes 4 Barn Jam films, 4 non-album audio tracks, 4 documentaries, and 2 promo clips.
A Deluxe Edition on CD+DVD or CD+Blu-ray versions will include 2 hardback books, a double-sided poster, a postcard in a dedicated envelope and a Gilmour guitar pick.
The project’s lead single and title track – which features The Liberty Choir and singers Mica Paris and Louise Marshall – will be released on July 17 following its premiere that morning on BBC Radio 2's Chris Evans Show, hosted by Sara Cox.
Gilmour has also announced a series of 2016 North American concerts to promote the record, with dates scheduled for Los Angeles, Toronto, Chicago and New York.
Ticket will go on sale Friday, July 17 and buyers will be among the first to receive the new album, as every ticket purchased online will include a “Rattle That Lock” CD.
