David Gilmour performed a pair of tracks from his latest album, “Rattle That Lock”, on the BBC’s Later with Jools Holland on Tuesday.
The Pink Floyd guitarist delivered his new single, “Today”, as well as the title track to the release, which landed Gilmour his second solo UK No. 1 album.
"It's thrilling to get a Number 1 album, we all want to hit the top spot, however long we've been at it, I'm delighted," said Gilmour. “I owe a debt of thanks to Polly Samson, for writing lyrics on four Number 1 albums, The Division Bell, On An Island, The Endless River, and now Rattle That Lock, and also to Phil Manzanera, my co-producer on the last three albums.”
Gilmour is in the middle of a five-night stand The Royal Albert Hall in London as he winds down a sold-out 11-date European tour to launch the project.
The guitarist will next perform shows in South America this December ahead of a North American run in the spring of 2016.
