David Gilmour has released a preview of the title track to his forthcoming solo album, “Rattle That Lock.”
Due in September, the Pink Floyd guitarist’s fourth solo effort sees him working alongside wife and lyricist Polly Samson and Roxy Music’s Phil Manzanera.
“The album was largely recorded in a studio in Brighton,” says Gilmour. “There are parts that are recorded on my houseboat, The Astoria, as well.
“The song ’Rattle That Lock’ was inspired, musically, by the sound that’s played on French railway stations; before they make an announcement – a 4-note jingle is played. Every time I heard it would make me want to start dancing.”
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.
“Rattle That Lock” is the follow-up to Gilmour’s 2006 album, “On An Island.”
