David Gilmour - Rattle That Lock

David Gilmour's new solo album, 'Rattle That Lock,' is his first since 2006's 'On an Island.'

David Gilmour has released an ambitious animated music video for the title track to his new album, Rattle That Lock, out September 18th. It was created by Alasdair & Jock from Trunk Animation, under the creative directorship of Aubrey Powell of Hipgnosis, the design group that created iconic images for Dark Side of the Moon, Meddle, Atom Heart Mother, Obscured by Clouds, Wish You Were Here, Animals and other classic Pink Floyd records.

"I love animation when it does something that canít be achieved any other way,Ē said Gilmour in a statement. "The film Alasdair & Jock have made for 'Rattle That Lock' highlights a darkness in the song that couldnít have been shown any other way."

The song's lyrics were written by Gilmour's wife, Polly Samson, who drew inspiration from John Miltonís Paradise Lost. "I think the animators have done a fine job: paying homage to Gustave Dore," Samson said in a statement, "bringing his illustrations for Paradise Lost alive, making a powerful visual for the song."

Rattle that Lock is David Gilmourís first solo album since 2006ís On an Island. Heís supporting the release with a solo tour that kicks off in Brighton, England, on September 5th and comes to America for a short run of dates next March and April. The run will be the first time Gilmour has toured since the 2008 death of Pink Floyd keyboardist Richard Wright, who was a key collaborator on Gilmour's solo work.

Last year, Gilmour reunited with Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason to create the largely instrumental Floyd album The Endless River, which featured some of Wright's final recordings. Fans hoped it would lead to more Floyd activity ó and possibly even their first tour since 1994 ó but Gilmour made it very clear that this wasnít going to happen. "I just try to imagine what it would be like, and the thought of it makes me break out in a cold sweat," he told Rolling Stone. "Iím an older person. I'm really enjoying my life. I'm really enjoying the music that I am making, and there's no room for Pink Floyd."
