After the single "Rattle That Lock" release, the rocker David Gilmour presented the animated video for this song. The track will appear on the musician's fourth solo album "Rattle That Lock", which will come out on September 18 via Columbia.
Animation for the video was created by a team of 12 animators, artists and compositors, assembled by producer Richard Barnett and London-based company Trunk Animation directors Alasdair Brotherston and Jock Mooney. The creative director was Aubrey Powell from the legendary studio Hipgnosis, which has created most of Pink Floyd's album covers.
The artists and animators took their main inspiration from the first three books of "Paradise Lost" by John Milton. Work on it lasted three months and, as a result, "Rattle That Lock" tells about the fall of Satan from the kingdom of Heaven and his subsequent journey through Pandemonium, Purgatory and Chaos on his way to corrupt the virgin Earth.
Earlier, a part of the song "Rattle That Lock" was reported to have been written by David Gilmour at the station with his iPhone.
