Rattle That Lock is the fourth studio album by British musician David Gilmour released in September 2015 on Columbia Records.

Rattle That Lock follows his 2006 album #1 in the UK record On An Island. The primary lyricist for the new album is Gilmour's long-term writing partner, Polly Samson, and it is co-produced by David Gilmour and Roxy Music's Phil Manzanera.  

Rattle That Lock's striking cover has been art directed by Dave Stansbie from The Creative Corporation under the creative directorship of Aubrey Powell from Hipgnosis.

The album was recorded at Gilmour's recording studios. Phil Manzanera, co-producer of the album, estimates that Gilmour has been writing the material for Rattle That Lock over the past five years.

Most of the album was recorded at Medina Studio, in Hove – the additional recording was at the Astoria houseboat studio. The final Pink Floyd album, The Endless River, was similarly recorded and produced using a combination of the two studios.

Orchestra parts were recorded at AIR Studios in London and the Liberty Choir were recorded in a South London church. 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.

The title track Rattle That Lock was inspired by and makes use of the French SNCF jingle, composed by Michaël Boumendil. Gilmour heard and recorded the jingle on his iPhone at Aix-en-Provence station while travelling to visit friends.  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 II of John Milton's Paradise Lost. The musicians Mica Paris and Louise Marshall, together with the Liberty Choir perform on the track.

The song A Boat Lies Waiting is a moving tribute to David's former bandmate in Pink Floyd, Richard Wright who passed away in 2008 after playing in David's touring band in support of the previous studio album On An Island.

Listen to some other tracks from the album - In Any TongueThe Girl In The Yellow DressToday and Faces Of Stone.
