David Gilmour is sharing an orchestral preview of “5 A.M.”, a track from his forthcoming album, “Rattle That Lock.”
It’s the second preview of the tune from the project, which will be released on September 18.
“Rattle That Lock” was recorded at various places, including the guitarist’s Astoria houseboat studio and in Hove, Sussex, UK.
Gilmour worked on the record with co-producer Phil Manzanera and wife and lyricist Polly Samson.
The 10-track set delivers five tunes with lyrics by Samson and two by Gilmour alongside three instrumentals.
“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.
