David Gilmour has performed his track Rattle That Lock on US TV’s Jimmy Kimmel Live.

The former Pink Floyd man appeared on the popular show to play the title track from his latest solo album, which was released last year via Columbia Records.

Gilmour previously revealed that the song was inspired by a chime that precedes announcements at French train stations. He liked it so much that he recorded the sound on his phone and incorporated it into the final cut.

He said: “Every time I heard it, it made me want to start dancing.”

Gilmour is currently on the road in support of Rattle That Lock, which includes a show for the Teenage Cancer Trust at London’s Royal Albert Hall on April 24. He’ll then return to the venue for a further four shows in September.
