David Gilmour has revealed details of his new album, Rattle That Lock.
The album will be released worldwide on September 18 by Sony Music.
He’s also announced his first North American dates for ten years, which will take place in March and April 2016.
Rattle That Lock is Gilmour’s first solo album since On An Island in 2006; it is also his first since Pink Floyd’s swansong, The Endless River last year. Primary lyricist is Gilmour’s long-term writing partner, Polly Samson, and it is co-produced by David Gilmour and Phil Manzanera.
Among the material on the album’s deluxe editions are footage of jams recorded at Gilmour’s barn in Sussex featuring his late Pink Floyd band mate, Richard Wright.
