Rattle That Lock follows the 2006 #1 platinum album On An Island, and once again features novelist Polly Samson as primary lyricist, as well as Phil Manzanera, who co-produced the album with David. The striking cover was art directed by Dave Stansbie from The Creative Corporation under the creative directorship of Aubrey Powell from Hipgnosis.

The title track, 'Rattle That Lock', will be heard for the first time in the UK on BBC Radio 2's Chris Evans Show, hosted by Sara Cox, on Friday, July 17th and will be available immediately to download and stream worldwide. The song begins with the four notes, created by Michaël Boumendil, which precede announcements at French SNCF railway stations which David recorded on his phone at Aix-en-Provence station. Polly's lyrics were inspired by Book II of John Milton's Paradise Lost, which is also featured in her recent acclaimed novel, The Kindness. The single also features The Liberty Choir, as well as singers Mica Paris and Louise Marshall.

The Rattle That Lock album will be available in a CD edition with clothbound, foil-blocked cover, including a 22-page booklet, but also on heavyweight vinyl, digital download and a deluxe box edition, which includes 4 Barn Jam films, 4 non-album audio tracks, 4 documentaries, and 2 promo clips. Available in CD+DVD or CD+Blu-ray versions, the deluxe edition also includes 2 hardback books, a double-sided poster, a postcard in a dedicated envelope and a David Gilmour plectrum.

Pre-ordering for all editions will be available around the world at various times tomorrow, July 17th.

Terrific thread.......my first ever 'gig' was the Floyd at Wembley Arena (then called the Empire Pool Wembley) must have been I think 1975........Wish You Were Here had been released. They played DSOT

I think Animals is their most underrated. Love that album...

Brilliant show from Roger in Lisbon on Sunday night. Can't say too much as it would include spoilers but it is a feast for the senses. Great setlist, brilliant playing, impeccable sound and amazing li

His last album "On An Island" (2006) was surprisingly good.

I often listen to this straight after Division Bell... I think they work together quite nicely. And throw Endless River into the mix too, nothing wrong.

Me too!

Well, enjoy the movie then!

What'd you think about the movie?

The music part was great (naturally!)... but Roger has always been and will always be a self-absorbed prick... Plus, the "crying" scenes were so phony...

I'm glad I went to see it, though...

Well, I think the live footage was great, although it was impossible it could match the live visual experience.

As for the offstage shooting, it was interesting, though not what one might have expected (no value judgement in that).

I found it a movie about Waters finally overcoming the loss of his father, more that a proper "live concert" film (although the whole album performance is show).

Indeed, it's worth seeing for any Pink Floyd fan.

The copyright extension ep that was released in December has just appeared on i tunes , so if you want to hear the very first recordings of this legendary band then now you can!! Won't be to everyone's taste but interesting none the less!!

Search Pink Floyd 1965 and go from there!

Slightly off topic: I saw The Australian Pink Floyd show tonight in Geneva. Truely remarkable. If they play your hometown, go and see them!

Tickets are very expensive, but the real problem is they are GA with no seats.

Two of my friends are going. I'm sulking :(

Seven years ago on this very bank holiday weekend, was when I saw DG at the Union Chapel in London. Quite an awesome night, I must say.
