Sunday was David Gilmour's 70th birthday, and to celebrate, he shared with his fans an official music video for "In Any Tongue," a track from his 2015 studio album, Rattle That Lock. Watch it above.
A description on David's YouTube offered the following explanation about the clip:
Aubrey 'Po' Powell, David's creative director, was looking for a talented animator to work on a video for "The Girl In The Yellow Dress," and discovered in America a young film maker named Danny Madden, whose short film, Confusion Through Sand, had won recognition at the 2014 SXSW Film Festival. Po was so taken with the work that he showed it to David and lyricist Polly Samson, who immediately employed Danny to make the Yellow Dress film. However, David and Polly had also written "In Any Tongue" about the futility of war, and by chance some of the illustrations in Danny's film fitted the mood exactly. Danny gave his permission to use an edited part of Confusion Through Sand to fit "In Any Tongue," and the die was cast.
Gilmour has also announced concert dates for 2015-2016 where he'll be playing in support of Rattle That Lock. For more information on that, as well as his latest music and news, check out his Zumic artist page.
