David Gilmour reveals all about his new album, Rattle That Lock, in the new issue of Uncut, out now.

In our world exclusive interview, the former Pink Floyd singer and guitarist discusses bringing his band to an end, and the new phase of his solo career – in September, Gilmour will release his first solo album in nine years, the follow-up to 2006’s On An Island.

“As for Rattle That Lock,” he explains, considering the new album’s place in his body of work, “I don’t want to overplay it, but I think this is the best thing I’ve done. Probably ever. It’s very easy to be deluded, but I think it’s very good.


“I think I’ve found my feet. It’s quite late in life to start finding one’s feet, I must admit. Or at least, to find them again.”
