RATTLE THAT LOCK is David Gilmour’s fourth solo album and follows the No1 platinum release ‘On An Island’ (although in the interim there was of course the Pink Floyd release ‘The Endless River;’ which went to No 1 in 21 countries). It is released worldwide on Friday 18 September 2015, and is available now for pre-order.
 
Rattle That Lock includes 10 songs, all with music by David: 5 with lyrics by novelist Polly Samson, 2 by David himself and 3 instrumentals. French composer Michaël Boumendil has also contributed to the title track, about which more below.
 
The album was recorded at various places, including David’s Astoria houseboat studio and in Hove, Sussex, UK. As with ‘On An Island’, production was by David Gilmour and Roxy Music’s Phil Manzanera, with engineering by Andy Jackson, assisted by Damon Iddins.
 
Live dates have been booked to support the album release, and, in addition to the 2015 dates across Europe, several shows have been announced in North America for March and April 2016, with stops in Los Angeles, Toronto, Chicago and New York. Ticket buyers resident in North America will be among the first to receive the new album, as every ticket purchased online will include a Rattle That Lock CD*.

The first single, also titled ‘Rattle That Lock’, was released digitally on July 17th, 2015. The song begins with the four notes, created by Michaël Boumendil, which precede announcements at French SNCF railway stations which David recorded on his iPhone at Aix-en-Provence station.  Polly Samson’s lyrics were inspired by Book II of John Milton’s Paradise Lost, which is also featured in her recent acclaimed novel, The Kindness.  The single also features The Liberty Choir, as well as singers Mica Paris and Louise Marshall.
 
Rattle That Lock’s striking cover was art directed by Dave Stansbie from The Creative Corporation under the creative directorship of Aubrey Powell from Hipgnosis.
Front cover photograph is by Rupert Truman of StormStudios, while artist photographs in the various release formats are by Kevin Westenberg, with recording session photographs by Polly Samson.
