David Gilmour has just—as in today at noon—released the official video for “Rattle That Lock,” the title track from his upcoming new album.
The video, which can be seen below, was made under the creative directorship of Aubrey Powell of Hipgnosis, the design group that created the iconic images for classic Pink Floyd records, including The Dark Side of the Moon, Meddle, Atom Heart Mother, Wish You Were Here, Animals and others.
Gilmour released “Rattle That Lock” earlier this month as an audio-only video.
“It’s a jingle, a four-note jingle,” he says, explaining the song’s genesis, “and every time I heard it, it would make me want to start dancing.”
“It’s about a journey, but it’s also about that journey of not accepting the status quo,” adds Polly Samson, Gilmour’s wife and lyricist. “It’s based on two journeys, both inspired by Paradise Lost [John Milton's epic poem].”
Rattle That Lock is Gilmour’s fourth solo album and follows his 2006 release, On an Island. The album is available for preorder as a digital download and in various vinyl, CD and DVD/Blu-ray editions.
