David Gilmour launches Faces Of Stone video

David Gilmour has released a video for his solo track Faces Of Stone.

It’s taken from the Pink Floyd leader’s solo album Rattle That Lock, which was launched in September.

Gilmour says of the track: “Towards the end of my mother’s life, when she was suffering from dementia, there was a brief crossover period of about nine 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.”

His world tour continues in South America during December and North America in March and April.

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.
