David Gilmour is premiering the video for the title track to his forthcoming album, “Rattle That Lock.”
Due September 18, the project sees Gilmour working alongside wife and lyricist Polly Samson and co-producer Phil Manzanera.
The video for “Rattle That Lock” was created by Alasdair & Jock from Trunk Animation alongside the creative directorship of Aubrey Powell of Hipgnosis.
"I love animation when it does something that can’t be achieved any other way," says Gilmour. “The film Alasdair & Jock have made for Rattle That Lock highlights a darkness in the song that couldn’t have been shown any other way.”
The black and white, hand drawn animation depicts various facets from John Milton’s ‘Paradise Lost’, from which Samson drew inspiration for the lyrics.
“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.
Gilmour will launch “Rattle That Lock” with a sold-out 11-date European tour, with shows starting on September 12 in Croatia; the run includes five concerts at London’s Royal Albert Hall.
He’ll also play a recently-announced series of North American concerts in 2016, with dates scheduled for Los Angeles, Toronto, Chicago and New York.
