When the jingle of SNCF inspired guitarist of Pink Floyd – The Point

The catchy jingle from the train station in the above ads inspired the Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour, who uses the first single from his new solo album broadcast from Friday. That Rattle Lock , the fourth solo album from the famous guitarist and the first for nearly ten years, published on 18 September, nearly a year after the latest album of Pink Floyd released last fall , said his home in Columbia-Sony discs.

Consisting of ten tracks, this new album is announced by a first extract also called “Rattle That Lock” which begins with the famous jingle from the train composed of female voices that can be heard in stations. The four scores are then taken up by the guitarist to make the base of this piece rather rock. “I was at the station of Aix-en-Provence two years ago and I heard the jingle [short jingle, Ed] SNCF, and I recorded it on my phone,” said in a press the guitarist of 69 years. The latter obtained permission to Michaël Boumendil, creator of the jingle, which is credited for this piece.

Many of the songs on this new album are co-written by Gilmour’s girlfriend, Polly Samson. The disc was co-produced with Phil Manzanera of Roxy Music. David Gilmour, as part of a European tour, will on September 17 at Theatre Antique d’Orange the only concert (already complete) in France this year. In 2016, the guitarist will give his first concerts in North America “for ten years,” says his record.
