Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour previewed his new solo album during the 2015 Borris House Festival of Writing and Ideas in Carlow, Ireland this weekend.

Titled Rattle That Lock, the long-awaited follow-up to 2006’s On an Island was recorded with Roxy Music’s Phil Manzanera, Jools Holland, and Gilmour’s wife, Polly Sampson, who assisted in writing the lyrics. According to Sampson, the theme of the album is “‘Carpe Diem’ … seize every moment, look to the future, ‘Just Do It’ and don’t be afraid or hold back.”

Gilmour played two songs during the event: “Girl with a Yellow Dress”, which features Holland on keys, and an another track called “Boots on the Ground”, which Gilmour was inspired to write after listening to loud speaker announcements at a French train station.

Rattle That Lock is expected to see release in September to coincide with Gilmour’sUK/European tour.

Update:

In a Q&A with fans, Gilmour confirmed that he plans to tour North America in 2016.

The forthcoming jaunt will mark Gilmour’s first tour of America in a decade. His last outing came in 2006 behind his last solo album, On an Island.  Prior to crossing the Atlantic, however, Gilmour will play a number of shows in the UK and Europe in September.
