Gilmour launches 2 track teasers

David Gilmour has released two teasers for his track 5 A.M. from solo album Rattle That Lock.

The former Pink Floyd frontman will launch the follow-up to 2006’s On An Island on September 18.

Gilmour recently told Classic Rock of his inspiration: “I honestly don’t know how it happens, actually. Whatever arrives, we just go with it. I don’t have a plan. We work on it until it starts making sense, and then we cut a few things out and concentrate on what we’ve got going for us.

“I think I’m quite lucky that – like ’em or not – my voice and my guitar playing are distinctive. They’re me and recognisably so, and that ties everything together.”

Rattle That Lock is available for pre-order now. Gilmour launches a sold-out solo tour on September 12. Pink Floyd are the cover stars of the current edition of Classic Rock, on sale now in print, digital and via TeamRock+.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
