Hear David Gilmour Dreamily Cover The Beatles' "Here, There And Everywhere"

New MusicWeston PaganoComment

Leading up to his forthcoming solo record Rattle That Lock, former Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour has unveiled a one-off wispy rendition of The Beatles' "Hear, There and Everywhere" in this month's issue of MOJO Magazine. The sleepy track originally appeared on the classic 1966 album Revolver.

This is only the most recent of many connections between the two groups of artists, which also include Gilmour's contributions to Paul McCartney's recordings of "We Got Married" and the ballad version of "No More Lonely Nights."

Rattle That Lock is due out September 18 via Columbia Records. Hear the first single and title-track here.

David Gilmour Releases Title-Track from and Details Forthcoming Solo LP 'Rattle That Lock,' Announces Tour

Music News, New MusicWeston PaganoComment

Former Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour has released the title-track from his forthcoming solo LP Rattle That Lock which is due out September 18 via Columbia Records.

The song itself begins with four notes from the intercom system in French SNCF railway stations, curiously enough, which Gilmour captured on his phone while at the Aix-en-Provence station. Combined with a roving bass groove, a backing choir, and a quintessentially Gilmour guitar solo, "Rattle That Lock" is a sign of good things to come.

The record features Roxy Music’s Phil Manzanera and Jools Hollands, and contains lyrics primarily written by Gilmour's wife, novelist Polly Samson (who also worked with him on his preceding LP, 2006's #1 platinum album On An Island) that are inspired by John Milton's Paradise Lost.

In addition to the usual formats, Rattle That Lock will be available in a deluxe box edition, which includes a staggering four Barn Jam films, four non-album audio tracks, four documentaries, two promo clips, two hardback books, a double-sided poster, a postcard in a dedicated envelope, and a David Gilmour plectrum (which is the fancy word English rock legends use for guitar picks).
