PRNewsFoto/Columbia Records“Rattle That Lock,” the title track of David Gilmour‘s upcoming solo album, was released as the record’s first single today. You can hear the song in its entirety now at the Pink Floyd singer/guitarist’s official website and YouTube channel.

The melodic mid-tempo rock tune, not surprisingly, is reminiscent of Pink Floyd’s post-Roger Waters material, showcasing Gilmour’s soaring guitar leads and smooth yet slightly reedy vocals. As previously reported, David co-wrote the song with his wife and frequent lyricist, Polly Samson, and the tune was inspired musically by a four-note tone he heard playing at French railway stations that preceded announcements for travelers.

Meanwhile, new details about the deluxe CD/DVD and CD/Blu-ray versions of the Rattle That Lock album have been revealed. The bonus disc features a variety of audio and visual content, including footage of several jams recorded and filmed in January 2007 with late Pink Floyd keyboardist Rick Wright, as well as with bassist Guy Pratt and drummer Steve DiStanislao. It also contains videos for the title track and “The Girl in the Yellow Dress”; a few documentaries focusing on different aspects of the album; a 5.1 surround sound version of the record; and a number of alternate versions of “Rattle That Lock.”

Rattle That Lock will be released on September 18. For more information, visit David
