Recording[edit] The album was recorded at Gilmour's recording studios. Phil Manzanera, co-producer of the album, estimated that Gilmour had been writing the material for Rattle That Lock
Rattle That Lock
over the past five years, though he pointed out that one piano piece was recorded 18 years ago in Gilmour's living room.[5] Most of the album was recorded at Medina Studio, in Hove
Hove
– the additional recording was at the Astoria houseboat studio, in both cases by long time collaborator, engineer Andy Jackson. The final Pink Floyd
Pink Floyd
album, The Endless River, was similarly recorded and produced using a combination of the two studios.[2][6] Orchestra
Orchestra
parts were recorded at AIR Studios in London[7] and the Liberty Choir were recorded in a South London church.[7] The album was mixed at Astoria and mastering for all formats was performed by James Guthrie and Joel Plante at das boot recording in Lake Tahoe, California.[6] The title track "Rattle That Lock" was inspired by and makes use of the SNCF
SNCF
jingle, composed by Michaël Boumendil. Gilmour heard and recorded the jingle on his iPhone at Aix-en-Provence
Aix-en-Provence
station while travelling to visit friends.[2][8] When Boumendil first got a phone message from Gilmour, he thought it might be a prank, so didn't return the call.[9] The lyrics for the track were written by Gilmour's wife and long time collaborator, Polly Samson and are based around the themes of Book
Book
II of John Milton's Paradise Lost. The musicians Mica Paris and Louise Marshall, together with the Liberty Choir perform on the track.[2] David's son Gabriel performs piano on the song "In Any Tongue", making his recording debut.[10] Promotion[edit] Radio[edit] "Rattle That Lock" was the first single released from the album, it had its first radio airplay on BBC Radio 2's The Chris Evans Breakfast Show during the morning of 17 July 2015.[2] The single was made available for digital download immediately afterwards.[2][11] Also, David granted US radio DJ Redbeard an interview and premiered the album in the US on an episode of In the Studio the week of the album's US release. For the week beginning on 3 August 2015, BBC Radio 2
BBC Radio 2
made "Rattle That Lock" their Record of the Week, guaranteeing the song at least one play per day. Music video[edit] On 31 July 2015, a music video for "Rattle That Lock" was released on Gilmour's website and promoted via social media outlets. The video was created by Trunk Animation under direction from Alasdair Brotherston and Jock Mooney, produced by Richard Barnett and involved 12 animators, artists and compositors. Aubrey Powell of Hipgnosis served as Creative Director for the video. The video depicts the fall of Lucifer
Lucifer
from the Kingdom of Heaven
Heaven
and his subsequent journey through Pandæmonium, Purgatory
Purgatory
and Chaos to corrupt the virgin Earth and become Satan, as told in the epic poem, Paradise Lost.[12] Editions[edit]
