With David Gilmour’s 2015 tour due to start in only a few months, David Gilmour has revealed the name of the album he has been working on which will be released later this year.
The album is called Rattle That Lock and will be David’s fourth solo studio album following the self titled David Gilmour (1978), About Face (1984) and On an Island (2006).
Lyrics are Hard to Write!
David and his song-writing partner Polly Samson attended the Borris House Festival of Writing over the weekend where David revealed in an interview the title of the album.
David’s wife Polly Samson told of how difficult it was getting lyrics out of the guitarist and likened it to getting a child to do his homework! On the issue of writing lyrics, David said, ”it’s not something I’m comfortable with. I would love to find that key which opens the door to writing”.
Further news on the new David Gilmour album is that is follows a theme of living life to the full – the idea of Carpe Diem – seize every day and the opportunities within it. David treated the audience to some of his new song Just Do It at the festival which reinforces the theme of Carpe Diem.
September 2015 – A Great Month for Fans
David Gilmour’s much anticipated European Tour 2015 commences on 12th September in Croatia which is just 96 days away – not that NPF is counting or anything. Hopefully the new album will be released to coincide with the tour.
Roger Waters will be showing his Wall Film in cinemas across the world on 29th September 2015 so this will be a great month for Pink Floyd fans and sits between the four nights David is going at the Royal Albert Hall.
