Uncut’s cover star David Gilmour has unveiled a new animated video for “Rattle That Lock“: you can watch it below.
The fim was created by Alasdair & Jock from Trunk Animation, the London based production house, under the creative directorship of Aubrey Powell of Hipgnosis.
David Gilmour said: “I love animation when it does something that can’t be achieved any other way. The film Alasdair & Jock have made for Rattle That Lock highlights a darkness in the song that couldn’t have been shown any other way.”
Polly Samson, who co-wrote the song with Gilmour, said “I think the animators have done a fine job: paying homage to Gustave Dore, bringing his illustrations for Paradise Lost alive, making a powerful visual for the song.”
Gilmour graces the cover of the current issue of Uncut. In our world exclusive interview, he talks about his new album, the end of Pink Floyd, his new record and getting older, in a world exclusive interview.
“I think I’ve found my feet,” says the guitarist, singer and songwriter. “It’s quite late in life to start finding one’s feet, I must admit. Or at least, to find them again.”

David’s album, Rattle That Lock, 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.
