David Gilmour premieres Faces Of Stone video

David Gilmour is debuting a video for “Faces Of Stone”, a track from his latest solo album, “Rattle That Lock.”

It’s a personal song by the Pink Floyd guitarist about the end of a life and a beginning of another.

"Towards the end of my mother’s life, when she was suffering from dementia," Gilmour explains, “there was a brief crossover period of about 9 months, when she was alive and my daughter was newly born: this song is a musing on that time.

“Specifically it refers to a walk in the park where my mother was ‘seeing’ pictures, or ‘faces of stone’, hanging in the trees.”

“Faces Of Stone” is the fourth video issued from “Rattle That Lock”, following the title track, “Today”, and “The Girl In The Yellow Dress.”

Gilmour launched a world tour in support of the record with a September 5 warm-up show in Brighton, UK before playing a sold-out 11-date European tour that included five shows at The Royal Albert Hall in London.

The guitarist will next perform dates in South America this December ahead of a North American run in the spring of 2016.
