Gilmour launches solo album film

David Gilmour has launched a 16-minute behind-the-scenes film on the making of solo album Rattle That Lock, which is released this week.

He’s previously issued clips from the video, which detail the inspiration and process that went into the follow-up to 2006’s On An Island.

Gilmour has already told how the signature tone on the title track was recorded at a French railway station, and how he wound up featuring a London choir made up of former convicts and members of the public in the backing track.

Rattle That Lock is released tomorrow (September 18). Gilmour is currently touring Europe.

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, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories 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.
