Gilmour streams Rattle That Lock

David GIlmour has released a stream of his track Rattle That Lock, taken from his solo album of the same name.

The follow-up to 2006’s On An Island is released on September 18.

The title track was inspired by a chime that precedes announcements at French train stations. Gilmour says “Every time I heard it, it made me want to start dancing.” He recorded it on his phone, and a sample based on it can be heard in the song.

He’s also released a video in which he and wife Polly Samson, who wrote the lyrics, explain more of the inspiration and creation process.

Rattle That Lock is available for pre-order in standard CD, gatefold vinyl, deluxe CD/DVD and deluxe CD/Blu-ray plus standard and deluxe digital formats.
