Album: Rattle That Lock (2015)
  • songfacts ®
  • The 10 tracks on Rattle That Lock follow the loose concept of taking place over the course of a single day, starting with this early morning-titled instrumental. Gilmour told Rolling Stone about the album's central idea. "It's nice to have a focus and tie things into some sort of form to make it have a cohesion. It's a loose thing about what you might be thinking or doing at a certain time of day. But it's not very strict. It's just always good to have some sort of theme running through something."
